On April 22, Transport Workers Union of America Local 592 members who work as Flight Dispatchers for Hawaiian Airlines, ratified an epic agreement with an 80 percent vote.
The five-year, industry-leading contract includes major increases to base wages, premiums, retirement, and all-in wage increases (inclusive of license and longevity) ranging from 16.8 percent to 34.7 percent.
“This is a contract we are immensely proud of,” said TWU International Vice President and Air Division Director Gary Peterson. “A union contract is the only way to achieve economic security – and this one will pave the way for generations to come.”
Local 592 President Jenny Schar stated, “We fought long and hard at the bargaining table and were able to secure this stellar contract. Our members will receive what they so rightfully deserve.”
