Some of you may be aware that AWA voted in a new 3 year contract negotiated between ALPA and the company. The hourly rate, bottom line is higher, still I think they are one of the lowest paid in the industry, but they are cutting down from 13 to 12 bid periods a year, which cuts back approximately 100 hours in the year. An 11% raise, sure if you want to fly more than you already are and be away from home more. AND since my DH has been there since 1985, he is tapped out in pay, he cannot make anymore money! Obviously he voted no on it!
