LAS VEGAS, Dec. 22, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allegiant (Nasdaq:ALGT) has received notification from the National Mediation Board (NMB) that employees voting in the flight attendant election have chosen to be represented by the Transport Workers Union (TWU).
"Allegiant respects the right of the flight attendant group to elect third-party representation and we will work with the TWU to the best interests of both our employees and the Company," Maurice J. Gallagher, Jr., Allegiant CEO and Chairman, said. "Contract negotiations can be a lengthy process and we do not anticipate any disruptions to our business or operations."
