Frontier Airlines workers to vote on benefits, wage cuts


DENVER — Frontier Airlines has approved a long-term agreement on wage and benefit concessions from maintenance workers represented by International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 691.

The airline had obtained cuts from those workers under a bankruptcy court order in November. Frontier says the modified cuts are comparable to what other employee groups have accepted.

Union members expect to vote on the agreement by Aug. 20.

A bankruptcy judge last month approved Republic Airways’ bid of almost $109 million to take Denver-based Frontier out of bankruptcy. Southwest Airlines Co. then submitted a nonbinding bid of $113.6 million. A binding bid is due Monday.
