Pilots at Piedmont Airlines, a wholly-owned subsidiary of US Airways (LCC), represented by the Air Line Pilots Association, have voted to ratify a new five-year collective bargaining agreement that was reached on February 1, US Airways said Friday.

The new contract was ratified by Piedmont Airlines' 375 ALPA-represented pilots who are based in Charlottesville, Va.; Harrisburg, Pa.; New Bern, N.C.; Roanoke, Va. and Salisbury, Md.
