Lawsuit Against NetJets Union Will Move Forward

Company Sued Regarding Harassment Of Flexjet And Flight Options Employees

A lawsuit against the NetJets Association of Shared Aircraft Pilots (NJASAP) and its operatives will move forward now that a Cuyahoga County Common Pleas judge has denied the defendants’ request to dismiss the case on a technicality.

The complaint filed by Flexjet, Flight Options, its managers and employees against NJASAP and NetJets Pilot Jeffrey Stein states that the union and its operatives sent hundreds of vulgar, threatening and malicious mailings to the homes of company managers and employees who spoke up in support of a May 2018 union decertification election. In at least one instance, a recipient called a fire department and explosives experts in response to receiving a box full of plain white envelopes with no return address. Although these envelopes containing postcards were sent anonymously, a postal investigation revealed the identity of the sender.

The suit seeks damages for these acts of menacing and intimidation. Those bringing suit include line pilots who led the successful grassroots effort to get back to a direct relationship with Flexjet so they could have an individual voice.

“We are pleased that the Judge is letting the case go forward against these defendants for their shameful behavior,” said Flexjet Chairman Kenn Ricci. “Unions such as NJASAP who were not at all involved with the recent decertification election need to understand they cannot do or say anything they want without consequences. This was not campaign speech or meant to do anything other than maliciously threaten those who spoke up in favor of decertification. This is just another example of how unions such as NJASAP are completely out of touch with employees and why union membership continues to decline.”

The postcard mailings occurred during a 28-day voting period when Flexjet and Flight Options pilots were voting overwhelmingly to oust the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) Local 1108. The NJASAP was not involved in the decertification vote.
