The tentative agreement is subject to ratification by the Allegiant flight attendants, and results of the vote are expected before the end of December. Allegiant currently employs 1,150 flight attendants.”We’re very pleased to have come to an agreement with the TWU and our flight attendants, a great achievement for everyone who dedicated many hours at the negotiating table,” said Maury Gallagher, Allegiant chairman and chief executive officer. “This agreement will begin an exciting new chapter of growth for our inflight team and for the company as a whole.”

 

 

“We have an amazing community of flight attendants who work hard every day, as safety professionals and at the heart of service for every passenger who flies with us,” said Tracy Tulle, Allegiant vice president, inflight services. “We appreciate their patience throughout the negotiation process, as we worked towards a fair agreement to support their efforts well into the future.”

 

 

The process of negotiating a first collective bargaining agreement for Allegiant flight attendants began in 2011. The Transport Workers Union was most recently certified as the group’s exclusive representative on February 26, 2016. An initial tentative agreement reached between the parties failed to ratify in September 2016, and negotiations continued under the supervision of the National Mediation Board to reach the current tentative agreement.
