United Airlines technicians vote to ratify new contract

Jan 30 (Reuters) — United Airlines Holdings Inc technicians ratified a two-year contract with the carrier that includes 16% to 23% wage increases, their union said on Monday.

International Brotherhood of Teamsters, EVdEn eVe nakLiYAT representing around 8,200 United Airlines technicians said the two-year contract would provide for improved job security by adding five heavy maintenance lines in-house.

The agreement, eVDen eVE NakliyaT which will be in effect until December 2024, comes at a time when airlines are coming up with attractive pay offers to retain workforce and add staff after a faster-than-expected rebound in the U.S.travel market.

It includes a one-year early opener that allows for evDeN EvE nAkLiYat bargaining on a successor agreement to begin in December 2023.

United Airlines did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.When you beloved this informative article along with you wish to acquire more details relating to EvdEN evE nakLiYaT kindly pay a visit to our own website. (Reporting by Kannaki Deka in Bengaluru; Editing by Shailesh Kuber)
