Hawaiian Airlines and Air Line Pilots Association announce tentative agreement

10:02 am on 22 December 2009

After two years of negotiations, Hawaiian Airlines and the Air Line Pilots Association have announced a tentative agreement on a five-year contract that would boost pay for Hawaiian pilots.

In September, 98 percent of Hawaiian Airlines pilots voted to authorize a strike, frustrated by the long impasse in contract talks.

At the time, the union said they didn't want to strike but they would if that's what it took to win a fair and reasonable contract.

Hawaiian Airlines has not had a strike in its 81-year history.

Details of the tentative agreement were not released.
