Preliminary Injunction Issued in ABX Air Labor Matter

Air Transport Services Group announced that U.S. District Court Judge Timothy S. Black issued an order granting ABX Air’s motion to convert a temporary restraining order into a preliminary injunction prohibiting work stoppages and other service interruptions of ATSG’s cargo airline subsidiary ABX Air, Inc. by ABX Air’s pilot employees represented by the Airline Professionals Association of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Local 1224 (IBT).

On November 23, 2016, Judge Black determined that disagreements between ABX Air and its pilots over work scheduling issues constitute a “minor dispute” and must be resolved under terms of the labor agreement between ABX Air and the union. The preliminary injunction effectively extends that order pending an as-yet unscheduled adjudication on a permanent injunction.
