IAM reaches tentative agreement with US Airways.

AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2007 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) has reached a tentative agreement with US Airways.

The tentative agreement reportedly covers the carrier's 7,700 Fleet Service workers. According to the union, the negotiations were prompted by last year's merger between US Airways and America West Airlines and the tentative agreement provides a single contract and uniform terms for all Fleet Service employees for the first time.

Additionally, IAM said the tentative agreement includes substantial wage increases and calls for a single pay scale for all Fleet Service employees as well as improving the scope of work performed by IAM members and provides increased contributions to the IAM National Pension Plan.

The union said a summary of the terms is available on the District 141 website, at http://www.iam141.org and complete terms will be posted after distribution to local union representatives on 14 August 2007.
