Southwest Airlines flight attendants ratify a contract that will raise pay about 33% over 4 years

DALLAS (AP) — Southwest Airlines flight attendants have ratified a new contract that will boost their pay by about one-third over four years. The Transport Workers Union said Wednesday that Southwest cabin crews voted 81% to 19% in favor of the contract. The union’s board rejected a lower offer last summer, and rank-and-file flight attendants voted down another proposal in December. Southwest has about 20,000 flight attendants. They will get raises of more than 22% on May 1 and annual increases of 3% in each of the following three years.
