Northwest Airlines Prepared to Negotiate with Flight Attendants

Northwest Airlines would be willing to negotiate with its flight attendants, the airline said on Wednesday (2 August).

The flight attendants rejected an agreement that had been approved by union leaders and the airline and their labour contract was cancelled by the airline on 31 July. Northwest imposed new contract terms unilaterally after the members of the Association of Flight Attendants rejected a second proposal for an agreement that contained pay and benefit cuts.

The union immediately issued a strike warning, giving 15 days' notice of a potential strike.

The union is also willing to negotiate, according to the AFA's interim president Mollie Reiley.
