Teamsters Win Court Decision Against Amerijet

(WASHINGTON) – A three-judge panel for the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday that Amerijet must follow a district court order to arbitrate labor disputes with Teamsters who are temporarily based in the Caribbean.

This decision is the latest in a series of legal wins for the Teamsters against Amerijet. The union originally sued Amerijet in April 2012 after the company began illegally terminating workers who were stationed overseas under false legal premises.

Justices Decline Amerijet Case on Worker Disputes Outside U.S.

Denying a petition filed by a Florida-based cargo airline, the U.S. Supreme Court Nov. 16 declined to review a federal appeals court ruling that Amerijet International Inc. must arbitrate minor disputes under a collective bargaining agreement covering flight crew members even when the relevant events occurred outside the U.S.

Amerijet contended the Railway Labor Act's dispute resolution mechanisms have no application outside the U.S. and can't be applied to job disputes that arose in Trinidad.
