IAM Reaches Tentative Agreement for 2,200 at Hawaiian Airlines

The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) Districts 141 and 142 today announced tentative agreements with Hawaiian Airlines that cover the carrier’s 2,200 Mechanic and Related, Clerical, Office, Stores, Fleet and Passenger Service employees.

“These agreements provide our members the wages and benefits they deserve,” said Mike Klemm and David Supplee, Presidents and Directing General Chairmen for Districts 141 and 142, respectively. “We want to thank the negotiating committees for their long hours and their commitment on behalf of the membership.”

The IAM negotiating committees are unanimously recommending membership ratification of the agreements.

The proposed five-year contract provides pay raises retroactively from October 1, 2015, enhances job security, holds the line on health care costs for employees, and secures profit sharing and incentive programs.

Highlights and details of the Mechanic and Related Agreement can be viewed at the District 142 webpage at www.iamdl142.org. Highlights of the Clerical, Office, Stores, Fleet and Passenger Service Agreement can be viewed at the District 141 webpage at www.iam141.org.

Negotiations between IAM and Hawaiian Airlines have been ongoing since December 2013.

“The membership can be proud to share in the success of this growing airline with Collective Bargaining Agreements that reward their hard work,” added Klemm and Supplee.

Full details of the agreement and a ratification schedule will be available soon on the District 141 and District 142 websites at www.iam141.org and www.iamdl142.org.
