The union representing United Airlines pilots has approved a tentative deal that would give the aviators pay raises of more than 14%, making it the first major U.S. carrier to reach a deal since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic and setting the bar for the rest of the industry.
The agreement comes as the airline and others grapple with a shortage of pilots, which some carriers say have forced them to trim flight schedules.
The agreement sets the tone for negotiations between unions and other large U.S. carriers, including Delta Air Lines, American Airlines and Southwest Airlines, as labor groups seek quality-of-life improvements after two years of the pandemic. Some pilots say airlines have created grueling schedules to capitalize on a rebound in travel that has left them fatigued, and some have recently picketed to protest conditions.
Flight attendants and other work groups at major carriers are also in contract talks.
