US Airways mechanics and ground workers have approved a three-year contract with American Airlines.The contract, which covers 11,000 workers represented by the International Association of Machinists, includes furlough protection and raises in each year. The union said Saturday that all three contracts for mechanics and related fleet service and maintenance training specialist work groups were approved by a majority of the members, but it did not release vote totals.The union was the only labor group at US Airways and American that did not publicly support the airlines’ merger, which was completed in December. The Machinists said US Airways executives had negotiated deals with American’s labor groups while neglecting contract talks with their own employees.
