    Southwest Airlines announced Thursday it had reached a tentative agreement with the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association.

    Southwest Airlines said Thursday it had reached a tentative agreement with the mechanics union.

    In a statement, the Dallas-based airline said the cost-neutral contract has "raises in exchange for work-rule improvements and contract flexibility." The agreement has a four-year term.

    The Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association's membership will vote on ratifying the contact in the upcoming weeks, the airline said.

    The current agreement became amendable in August.
