(NATIONWIDE) -- Pilots who fly for Southern Air, a subsidiary of Atlas Worldwide Holdings (NASDAQ: AAWW), announced today they have reached a tentative Letter of Agreement (LOA) that is intended to improve working conditions, wages and benefits for the Southern pilots.
Following an Agreement in Principle (AIP) that was achieved on May 3, 2018, representatives of both pilot groups have notified their memberships of a Tentative Agreement that was reached with management.
Dear GSE/FAC Brothers and Sisters,
Your review committee met with the company in Chicago on May 31, 2018 to discuss issues concerning both GQ/PV departments. Discussions began with how Core Four would be implemented and how this philosophy would better serve the company as well as creating a working environment for employees that constitutes the basic core four principals.
This proposed contract is the result of many months of hard work and dedication by rank and file members, negotiating committee members and union leaders.
Many of you have inquired about some of our Letters of Agreements and where we currently stand regarding them; in particular Industry Reset (LOA #29), Offered Positions (LOA #21) and the Labor Management Cooperation (LOA #31).
Welcome to the Allegiant Mechanics dispatch. This will be a semi-regular publication to keep you informed of our progress during negotiations, as well as providing you with additional information as needed.
Atlas Air, Southern Air and ABX pilots; members of APA Local 1224 who are flying for Amazon, DHL and other customers will picket the White House to bring maximum visibility to the fight for a new CBA. Picketing will take place on Monday, June 11th.
