RESTON, Va., June 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Gate Gourmet, Inc.'s Union-represented workers have ratified a new National Master Agreement.  The contract will cover the airline catering company's 5,300 U.S.-based represented workers with an agreement that maintains the company's market competitiveness while also addressing employee issues.
