Alaska Air replaces uniforms after attendants say it sickened them

As the numbers of employees reporting mysterious illnesses keeps growing, Seattle-based Alaska Airlines has decided to replace the uniforms worn by its 3,200 flight attendants nationwide.

“Honestly, they’ve been frustrated with how long it’s taken to get to this point, but we are very happy to see that we are transitioning to a new uniform,” said Jeffrey Peterson, president of Alaska Airlines flight attendants union.

The union is convinced that rashes, headaches and hair loss and respiratory problems are linking to the uniforms flight attendants have been wearing since January of 2011.

“We did not have these issues before we transitioned to this new flight attendant uniform,” said Peterson.

He says some flights attendant’s illnesses were serious enough that they had to miss work for a period of time.
