The parent company of United Airlines and Continental Airlines said Wednesday that Continental has reached a labor agreement with representatives of some 7,200 non-union employees who work as reservation agents and in other passenger-service roles.

The company did not offer details of the agreement except to say that it covers pay, benefits and work rules.

Negotiations began in January with representatives for the various work groups. The representatives are elected by their co-workers.

“By working together with our employees, we expedited pay and benefit improvements for our non-represented agents,” said Mike Bonds, executive vice president of human resources and labor relations for United Continental Holdings Inc.

United Continental shares rose 92 cents, or 4.2 percent, to close at $23.84 on Wednesday.
