HORIZON FLIGHT ATTENDANTS RATIFY FIRST CONTRACT

 HORIZON FLIGHT ATTENDANTS RATIFY FIRST CONTRACT
 WASHINGTON, May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The flight attendants at


Horizon Airlines, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA), AFL-CIO, today ratified their first collective bargaining agreement with the Seattle-based company after nearly five years of negotiations. Eighty-five percent of the voting membership voted for the contract by confidential mail ballot.
 The approximately 160 Horizon attendants will receive significant pay increases, including a $40,000 lump-sum signing bonus to be divided among all flight attendants on a length-of-service basis. The contract also includes work rule advances such as vacation allowances, which are among the best in the industry.
 "This contract proves that union solidarity and determination can win out, even with small labor groups," stated Shelby Hildahl, AFA local president at Horizon. "We're now ready to move forward, forging a better relationship between the company and the flight attendants."
 AFA first won the right to represent the Horizon flight attendants in 1987. Negotiations began in August of that year, followed by federally-supervised mediation beginning in 1988.
 The Association of Flight Attendants, AFL-CIO, represents 32,000 flight attendants on 20 different air carriers, and is the largest flight attendant union in the world.
