Kalitta Air pilots to vote on tentative agreement

June 25, 2007


Teamsters Local 747 has said that pilots for Kalitta Air, represented by the union, are to vote on a tentative contract agreement by mail ballot over the course of the next month.

The union said the proposed contract is the product of over four years of negotiations and follows a previously rejected tentative agreement. The new agreement would reportedly provide a 20% pay increase over the four-year duration of the contract and an enhanced 401k plan, as well as overtime pay and improved work rules.

The agreement is subject to ratification by the membership.

Kalitta Air is an air cargo service airline that operates a fleet of Boeing 747s and 727s.
