ALASKA FLIGHT ATTENDANTS RALLY AT SEA-TAC AIRPORT

 ALASKA FLIGHT ATTENDANTS RALLY AT SEA-TAC AIRPORT
 The flight attendants of Alaska Airlines, joining with Alaska's


IAM and other unions, are rallying in Seattle today to urge the company to bring a quick and fair end to the labor negotiations at the airline.
 "The flight attendants of Alaska Airlines face many of the same issues and difficulties faced by the IAM," said Gail Bigelow, president of the Association of Flight Attendants Master Executive Council at Alaska. "We understand the frustration of dealing with management that doesn't seem to appreciate our sacrifices and hard work."
 The flight attendants have been in negotiations with the company for over two years, while the IAM has been negotiating for five years.
 The rally will be held at the Sea-Tac Airport beginning at 11 a.m. and running until 5 p.m. Bigelow and other union leaders will be appearing at a press conference at the Airport Hilton at 1 p.m. PST today.
 The Alaska flight attendants are represented by the Association of Flight Attendants, AFL-CIO, the world's largest flight attendant union.
