American Airlines attendants to get 1.6 percent pay increase

🕐 1 min read

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — American Airlines flight attendants will receive a 1.6 percent wage increase after the union sought a pay hike of more than 8 percent.

An arbitration panel agreed Tuesday on the lower figure for American’s more than 25,000 workers represented by the Association of Professional Flight Attendants.

Fort Worth-based American and the union disagreed over the wage increase as part of a pay adjustment negotiated in the 2014 collective bargaining agreement. The matter involved contract negotiations related to the US Airways merger with American.

AFPA President Bob Ross called the 1.6 percent pay raise “insulting.”

American says that since last April flight attendants have seen a 9.6 percent increase in pay, including Tuesday’s arbitration ruling. Figures show American flight attendants in 2015 earned an average annual income of nearly $49,000.
