Tentative Agreement Reached
Fellow Omni Flight Attendants,
After months of hard bargaining, we are pleased to announce that we have reached a Tentative Agreement for Omni Flight Attendants.
When we went back to the bargaining table in July, we had a strong mandate from Flight Attendants to secure core economic provisions in any new Tentative Agreement.
Among our top priorities were preserving our Call Out Pay of $200, protecting access to profit sharing on same basis as other company employees, and restoring important provisions such as Galley Pay.
We also sought important quality of life improvements such as fixing the bereavement leave process and strengthening our hotel language. We also sought immediate and substantial economic improvements which recognize our value as Omni Flight Attendants.
Over months of bargaining under the supervision of the National Mediation Board, your negotiations team pushed for contract improvements so we could bring a new Tentative Agreement back to you. While we strongly believe we need our contract improvements now, we also wanted to make sure we did it right. We wanted to make sure our issues as Omni Flight Attendants were addressed.
Many of you signed up to be mobilizers and indicated you would do everything it takes to reach an agreement. That made all the difference and we thank you for your support.
We also want to thank the previously union leaders and negotiating committee who worked so hard to reach our first TA.
