Union Organizational Change

Dear Crewmembers,

We recently learned that the Atlas Air pilots, represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, have elected to depart from Local 1224 and form a new local, Teamsters Local 2750, to represent them.  While this is a significant change in organization for the Union, it is our understanding that these new developments with the Union will not adversely impact or delay negotiations.

In fact, we were pleased to see in the press release issued by Union leaders that they expect to make progress towards a collective bargaining agreement in this new formation – and we certainly share in this expectation.  We remain committed to you and to the bargaining process. 

As always, we appreciate your continued dedication to our customers and our Company as we work to deliver the updated, competitive contract that you deserve.
