Spirit Airlines Ramp Workers Vote To Join Machinists Union

Spirit Airlines baggage handlers have voted to be represented by the machinists union, joining three other employee groups at the low-cost carrier that have bargaining agents. Of 217 eligible voters, 131 voted to join the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, according to certified results from the U.S. National Mediation Board, which supervised the election that began June 16 and ended on Tuesday. Thirty-two of the Spirit Airlines workers voted for no representation. The Spirit Airlines election comes as unions mount a push to make new inroads at U.S. carriers, particularly low-cost airlines.
