United Airlines and its pilots union have reached a tentative agreement on a contract that would give the carrier a promise of labor peace as it readies for the busiest travel season since the start of the pandemic.

The Air Line Pilots Association International said Friday terms will be reviewed by an internal council handling matters with United. If accepted there, the contract will be sent to members for ratification. Pending those decisions, terms were not disclosed.

 

Capt. Michael Hamilton, chair of the union's master executive council that will review the contract, called it "an industry-leading agreement that recognizes our contributions to the current and future success of United Airlines."
