Horizon Air Aircraft Technicians, Fleet Service Agents Ratify New Six-Year Contract

SEATTLE, June 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Horizon Air's aircraft technicians and fleet service agents have ratified a new six-year contract, the airline and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) announced today.

"We're pleased that our technicians recognized the benefits of this contract and voted to ratify," says Yvonne Daverin, Horizon Air vice president of maintenance and engineering. "This contract provides both our technicians and our company with a strong, stable foundation as we continue to work together to build an even stronger airline."

About 94 percent of members participated, and 53 percent of those voted in favor of the agreement.

The contract, ratified well ahead of the amendable date of Dec. 16, 2014, includes a ratification bonus, annual wage increases and contract language enhancements. Horizon Air and IBT reached tentative agreement on the new contract in May 2014.

Under the Railway Labor Act, which governs collective bargaining agreements in the airline industry, contracts do not expire. Instead they become amendable. The ratified agreement for Horizon's technicians becomes amendable in 2020.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded Horizon its highest honor, the Diamond Certificate of Excellence, 13 times since 1999 in recognition of the airline's safety training efforts.

Horizon Air is a subsidiary of Alaska Air Group and flies to 44 cities across the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Alaska Airlines, a subsidiary of Alaska Air Group (NYSE: ALK), together with its partner regional airlines, serves nearly 100 cities through an expansive network in Alaska, the Lower 48, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico. Alaska Airlines has ranked "Highest in Customer Satisfaction Among Traditional Network Carriers" in the J.D. Power North America Airline Satisfaction Study SM for seven consecutive years from 2008 to 2014. Alaska Airlines' Mileage Plan also ranked highest in the 2014 Airline Loyalty/Rewards Program Satisfaction Report.
