Gate Gourmet, Inc. Employees Ratify New Contract

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.

"Considering the enormous challenges still facing our industry, we are very pleased to achieve agreement with our Union-represented workers on a contract that reflects our commitment to them and recognizes their ongoing service and dedication.  This allows us to continue moving forward together with our valued employees," said Andrew Gibson, Group SVP and President, North America.  

The contract next will be amendable on Dec. 31, 2012.
