Teamster Pilots, Amerijet Reach Tentative Agreement

Wages Increase Substantially In Four-Year Contract

Teamster pilots at Amerijet have reached a tentative agreement on a four-year contract with the airline. There are 85 members in the bargaining unit represented by Local 769 in North Miami, FL.

The four-year agreement includes a massive initial increase in base wages for Captains and First Officers of more than 55 to 75 percent, with yearly wage increases on top of the signing boost. Enhancements to seniority and sick leave are also included in the contract language.

“This is a contract we are proud to take to the membership,” said Capt. David Bourne, Director of the Teamsters Airline Division. “For over three years, these pilots have been facing significant obstacles to a contract and threats to their professional livelihoods. The unity they’ve displayed is remarkable and the rewards for it are reflected in this agreement.”

“The wage increases, scope of coverage and job protection language are major improvements for these pilots,” said David Renshaw, a business agent at Local 769 and lead negotiator for the Amerijet negotiations. “Not only did the pilots show tremendous solidarity, but we received a positive boost at the table thanks to support from the Airline Division and a management team that was willing to have productive talks with us. We look forward to voting on this agreement.”

Ratification meetings will take place on Wed., Nov. 30, Sun., Dec. 4, 2016 and Mon., Dec. 5, 2016.
