Flight attendants at US Airways have voted down a tentative agreement that included pay raises and other improvements.
The deal was rejected by 75 percent of voting flight attendants.
It would have been the first joint contract for flight attendants since the 2005 merger of America West and US Airways. Flight attendants from the two airlines are still working under separate contracts, as are pilots.
The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA says negotiations will continue. However, union negotiators had cautioned members before the vote that it wasn't clear how they would get a better deal.
The rejected contract included 11 percent raises for former US Airways flight attendants, who endured steep cuts during two trips through bankruptcy protection. America West flight attendants got raises, too.
