Ground workers for Alaska Airlines vote to end strike

A majority of ground workers for Alaska Airlines voted Sunday to end a three-month strike, agreeing to a contract they had rejected last month. The walkout by 600 workers began after contract talks broke down, largely over a disagreement about two-tiered wages. After the strike started, the dispute focused on a back-to-work agreement. Company officials said they would rehire strikers only as needed to replace personnel hired during the strike.

A contract dispute involving the airline's 540 flight attendants was settled in March. They didn't strike but refused to cross ground workers' picket lines.
