The ALPA Master Executive Council agreed to temporary pay and other reductions of $215 million on an annualized basis and PFAA leaders agreed to cuts of $117 million. The ALPA agreement is subject to membership ratification.
Northwest also confirmed that it has reached tentative agreements on permanent wage and benefit reductions with employees represented by the Aircraft Technical Support Association (ATSA) and the Northwest Airlines Meteorology Association (NAMA). The airline hopes to reach an agreement with the Transport Workers Union of America (TWU), shortly.
