TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Flight attendants at US Airways approved a new contract that wraps up some unfinished business from the airline’s 2005 merger with America West.

The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA says 80 percent of flight attendants voted to approve the deal. They had rejected tentative agreements twice previously, although the most recent vote in September was very close.

The union covers workers who came from both America West and the old US Airways. But they had separate contracts, and the airline had to schedule them separately.

The union says flight attendants will get raises. The deal takes effect Saturday.

They’ll have to do it all over again if the proposed merger of US Airways Group Inc. and American Airlines is approved.
