After unsuccessful negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement covering flight attendants, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) elected to call a strike at Amerijet.
Amerijet and IBT have been attempting to reach a collective bargaining agreement for nearly five years and remain at a standstill, with both parties at an impasse on the central issues.
“We are disappointed that IBT’s inability to reach a fair agreement has resulted in their decision to strike,” said Pamela Rollins, SVP business development, “The demands were simply not justified in any respect, particularly given the current competitive and economic environment. While we regret IBT’s decision to strike, we have prepared for this contingency.”
Amerijet has continued to operate its published flight schedule and has experienced no interruption of service to its customers.
