A Message For Our Pilots
From John Dietrich President and Chief Executive Officer, Atlas Air Worldwide
I want to share that we have now completed your new joint collective bargaining agreement (JCBA).
This new JCBA provides you all with significant pay increases and benefits, the details of which will be shared with you by your union leadership. Pay increases will be effective in October, and the remaining terms and conditions will be implemented in the coming months in collaboration with the union.
This new agreement paves the way for a new chapter for our Company. I know the road to get here has been longer than any of us expected, and we appreciate your ongoing patience and dedication.
Throughout the course of the negotiations, I have had the pleasure of meeting and talking with many you – from our 15+ year pilots to our new pilot hires. Across the board, I heard a common pride for the work you do at Atlas, and the teams that you work alongside. Over the last year alone, you have helped deliver essential goods and pharmaceuticals to support the pandemic relief efforts, and more recently, you’ve helped transport thousands of evacuees from Afghanistan for the U.S. military. The work we do matters.
I know what this new contract means to you and your family. We have shared in your deep-seeded desire to secure a contract that enables you to build a long-term career here at Atlas. As an industry leader, our Company is growing, strengthening our relationships with our customers, and hiring more great pilots. With this new agreement in place, our moment is now.
As we move forward together, we are united in our commitment to our Customers, our Company and one another.
