CHICAGO, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Continental Airlines flight attendants voted to approve a new contract with the U.S. carrier with 68 percent approving the deal, the union said.

Continental merged with United Airlines in October, which means its 9,300 flight attendants may not stick with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, which now represents them, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Saturday.

Fight attendants at United are represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA.

At some point, the two groups will decide on which of the two labor organizations will represent them.

Continental is technically a subsidiary of United Continental Holdings Inc.
