Piedmont Airlines

The CWA bargaining committee has reached a tentative agreement with American Airlines subsidiary Piedmont Airlines. The proposed contract covers more than 6,000 passenger service agents at Piedmont.

Members have been mobilizing at their airports and at community events, putting pressure on the company to reach a fair agreement. After the company reneged on its commitment to include retroactive pay in a new contract, thousands of agents contacted Eric Morgan, Piedmont's Vice President of Ground Handling, demanding that retroactive pay and fair wage scales be included in the new agreement.

In addition to retroactive pay and wage increases, the agreement makes improvements to mandatory overtime notification, vacation time, and benefits. Details of the agreement will be provided to the members and a ratification vote will be scheduled in the coming weeks.
