Does anyone have any idea where I might be able to see the IAM agreement for Alaska's ramp service employees?

It's not a public record; it's on the AS employee site and possibly the IAM site.

Yeah I figured as much. Google yielded no results.. Any chance someone might be willing to post the year over year pay scale?

Alaska rampers start out making $10 the first year and top out at $16 after 7 years.

Wow, that seems extremely low, even for an LCC. Hopefully they'll see some improvement with their new contract and benefit from what is a well-run airline.

Indeed. I made a bit more than that in years past at an FBO in a [much] cheaper part of the country.

Those figures are wildly inaccurate; starting pay is significantly higher than $10/hr. It goes to over $23.00/hr at TOS and even higher for Arctic stations.

Excuse my ignorance, but which stations do AS handle in-house?

State of Alaska mainline stations only. Nothing in Canada/Hawaii/L48/Mexico below the wing is handled by AS personnel, but contracted out.

Are there any IAM represented Alaska Rampers in the lower US? they outsourced SEA a while back. I only know that the existing mainline AS rampers still exist pretty much only in Alaska?

No, however there are plenty of L48 personnel represented by the IAM in Reservations, Accounting, and of course CSAs (the COPS contract - Clerical, Office, Passenger Service).

Would you happen to know if union membership is at the employee's discretion, or is it a closed shop?
Not that it matters in the grand scheme of things, just curious.

Thanks,

In addition, the COPS group is closed-shop as well. There was a time where membership wasn't mandatory, however the employee still paid union dues (just not the initiation fee to join) since "the union got them the wages and benefits they were enjoying."

Almost correct for the lower 48 except that the SEA Air Cargo facility is run by AS ramp agents. They load the freighter aircraft when it turns in the morning as well as the Combi flights in the morning and late night.

That sounds like the union talking, though I think I recognize the hint of sarcasm even without the smiley!
Thanks for the info.
