DENVER (October 12, 2000) - The dispatchers of Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT) represented by the Transport Workers of America AFL-CIO (TWU), voted on Friday, Oct. 6 to approve their first agreement with TWU with 77 percent of the employees voting for ratification. Of Frontier's nine dispatchers, seven voted for ratification and two voted against ratification. The three-year contract was agreed to and ratified after less than six months of negotiations.
"Through a cooperative effort, we were able to develop a contract which addressed the interests of the dispatchers, management and Frontier Airlines as a whole," said Frontier Dispatcher and Section Chairman Troy Meis, who represents Frontier's dispatchers to the airline and TWU. "The agreement will provide dispatchers with a stronger voice regarding issues such as improved working conditions, enhanced benefits and increased pay."
"We are pleased that Frontier's dispatchers have voted to ratify this contract, thus signaling their belief that the negotiated contract is a fair and equitable agreement for both the dispatchers and Frontier," said Frontier's Vice President of Human Resources and Flight Services Ann Block. "We expect the contract to produce positive improvements for the dispatchers and look forward to their contributions to Frontier's continuing success."
