It's a Deal... Sun Country Pilots Ratify Tentative Agreement on New Contract

Reached Agreement Only Seven Months After Officially Opening Contract Negotiations

Sun Country Airlines pilots, represented by ALPA, have announced they have overwhelmingly ratified a tentative agreement with the Company on a four-year contract.

With nearly 92 percent of eligible pilots participating, 93 percent voted to ratify the agreement, which brings the pilots’ pay rates, retirement contributions, commuter policies, and work rules in line with their peers.

“We are proud of this contract that reflects the work we’ve done and contributions we’ve made to help the airline grow,” said Sun Country Airlines ALPA Master Executive Council chair Capt. Brian Lethert. “We are committed to helping the company continue growing and achieving its objectives through this modern contract, which will ensure the airline is able to retain and attract pilots.”

The pilots reached this agreement with the Company in a remarkably short time, only seven months after officially opening contract negotiations. ALPA’s goal from the beginning of negotiations was to attain a modern contract that reflects the modern airline Sun Country has transformed into over the last few years.

“This agreement represents a milestone for both Sun Country and our pilots. It provides our highly skilled pilot group with competitive wages and benefits and enables Sun Country’s significant future growth plans,” said Sun Country Chief Executive Officer Jude Bricker. “I want to congratulate both bargaining teams for having the dedication to reach an agreement in record time.”
