Allegiant Air pilots vote to Join IBT union

Allegiant Air’s 350 pilots have voted to join the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) union.
“Pilots want fair work rules, improved scheduling, improved pension and health care benefits and the security of a Teamster contract,” IBT said in a statement, adding that unionization was a “major victory” for Allegiant’s flight deck crew.
“Allegiant respects the right of the pilot group to elect third-party representation, and we will work with the IBT to the best interests of both our employees and the company,” Allegiant CEO and chairman Maurice Gallagher said. “Contract negotiations can be a lengthy process and we do not anticipate any disruptions to our business or operations.”
