MILWAUKEE — Midwest Airlines (NYSE:MEH) has received notification from the National Mediation Board that its stock clerks have voted against representation by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters in an election aimed at unionizing those employees.

“Working together, in an environment of trust and teamwork, to meet our customers’ needs is more important today than ever,” said David C. Reeve, senior vice president of operations. “The ideal relationship between our company and employees is one in which individuals speak for themselves. We look forward to continuing to work and communicate directly with these employees, as we have for the past 20 years.”

Celebrating 20 years of providing customers with “The best care in the air,” Midwest Airlines features jet service throughout the United States, including Milwaukee’s most daily nonstop flights and best schedule to major destinations. Skyway Airlines, Inc. — its wholly owned subsidiary — operates as Midwest Connect, which offers connections to Midwest Airlines as well as point-to-point service between select markets on regional jet and turboprop aircraft. Together, the airlines offer service to 50 cities. More information is available at http://www.midwestairlines.com/ .
