SEATTLE - Alaska Airlines and the union for its 1,500 pilots said they have a tentative agreement on a new four-year contract.

The Air Line Pilots Association is expected to announce results of a vote in the third week in May.

The contract has been in negotiation for more than two years. Terms were not announced Wednesday, but the union's Bill Shivers said it meets goals of improving or protecting pay, job security, retirement and health benefits.
