Virgin America airline flight attendants vote to approve union

SEATTLE, Aug 13 (Reuters) - Flight attendants at Virgin America airlines approved representation by the Transport Workers of America union, with 58 percent voting in favor, the union said on Wednesday, citing a National Mediation Board tally.

The decision ends the last non-union U.S. airline and marks the first union at Virgin America, based near San Francisco and started by entrepreneur Richard Branson. (Reporting by Alwyn Scott; Editing by James Dalgleish)
