Continental Airlines employees ratify new agreements.
The dispatchers, mechanics, pilots and simulator engineers of Continental Airlines have agreed to new contracts, according to the airline.
Continental said that the staff groups have ratified new contracts that are expected to save the airline about USD418m per year when added to previously agreed cuts, and added that the cabin crew is the only group that has not yet agreed to cut pay and benefits. The reductions will be implemented from the start of April for the airport, cargo, reservations, food services, management and clerical staff, Reuters reported.
The cabin crew voted on a 45-month wage and benefit agreement late yesterday (30 March) and a majority rejected the deal.
The airline will however implement the ratified agreements, The Associated Press reported.
