Re: Reduced Schedule Discussions

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Further the company claimed there was an agreement with IBT leadership that this process could be implemented. That is just not true. 


(WASHINGTON) – At the request of the pilots at Allegiant Air, Teamsters General President James P. Hoffa and the Teamsters General Executive Board approved the formation of Teamsters Local 2118. There are over 1,100 pilots who will be members of the union which will be headquartered in Las Vegas.


Congressional leadership has produced a historic $2 trillion stimulus bill that provides significant relief to aviation workers. The 96 Senators who were present for the vote supported the legislation unanimously; it was voted into law by the House of Representatives earlier today and is expected to be signed into law by the President.
