Hawaiian Airlines Dispatchers Ratify 5-Year Contract

HONOLULU -- Hawaiian Airlines dispatchers, represented by the Transport Workers Union (TWU), have overwhelmingly ratified a 5-year pact that provides significant wage increases, the company announced today.

“Our dispatchers have been an important part of our company’s success, and we are delighted to have forged a contract that recognizes their contributions,” said Jon Snook, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Hawaiian Airlines.

“We also appreciate TWU’s recognition of our competitive position as a smaller leisure fare carrier focused exclusively on carrying passengers to and from the Hawaiian Islands,” added Snook.

The TWU represents more than 45,000 airline workers in the U.S., of whom 44 are employees at Hawaiian Airlines.
