Northwest Baggage Handlers and Ramp Workers Accept New Contract


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Baggage handlers and ramp workers at Northwest Airlines Corp. on Friday approved concessions aimed at helping the carrier emerge from bankruptcy protection.
The same workers had rejected an earlier set of concessions. The union said its re-negotiated deal wasn't quite as bad as the first one.


"The agreement contains substantial sacrifice from our members, however, they agreed to the terms in order to preserve their contract and decades of collective bargaining terms," said Bobby De Pace, who runs the branch of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers that includes Northwest employees.

The IAM approval leaves only flight attendants without a concessionary deal with the airline.

I imagine the FA's are trying to do the same thing.

Does anyone know the terms of the new agreement?

I'm hoping we do. If trend is on our side, judge Gropper will rule against NWA, and force them to go back to the bargining table.

I believe it included further buyout numbers, but I could be wrong.

It only seems fair that if one union gets a second chance, so should the other.

This is NWA, when has fairness ever been part of the code of conduct? Wink

The new contract for the ramp workers includes an 11.5% initial pay cut, which represents a raise compared with the 19% wage reduction the group has been working under on an interim basis. It also allows Northwest to lay off about 700 of the 5,700 workers and outsource their jobs.

Together with agreements ratified in March by 6,500 other Machinists members who work as customer-service agents, clerical employees and reservationists, Northwest will receive savings of $190 million a year for five or six years from all its Machinists workers.
