Why you'll love this job

Taking care of our team members is critical to our long-term success. Labor Analysis analysts participate in union negotiating sessions alongside our Labor Relations and Legal departments and provide strategic and economic direction to senior leaders pertaining to labor contracts, employee compensation and benefits, and team member productivity. The wages associated with our team members are the largest single expense at the airline, and the Labor Analysis team is central to the strategic management of that expense.  Due to this importance of this role, the group gets unique exposure to certain groups throughout the company, including the People and Operations Planning departments.

What you'll do
