United Airlines Reaches Tentative Agreement With Flight Dispatchers

United Airlines (NYSE: UAL) said today it has reached tentative agreement on a new joint collective bargaining agreement with the two unions representing the Chicago-based carrier's more than 330 flight dispatchers.

The Transport Workers Union represents dispatchers working for United, while the Professional Airline Flight Control Association represents dispatchers at the carrier's Continental Airlines subsidiary. The new joint agreement was reached with the assistance of the National Mediation Board.

But there is still work to be done on getting a new contract with the Association of Flight Attendants at United.
