(PURCHASE, N.Y.) – Following a tentative agreement on April 5, 2017, Teamster flight dispatchers at Atlas Air, Inc., and Polar Air Cargo have voted today to ratify changes to their existing contract. One-hundred percent of the flight dispatchers voted, with 74 percent voting in favor of ratification.

The amended agreement, which was set to expire in November, has been extended for another four years and becomes amendable on November 12, 2021. The new provisions of the tentative agreement include a 30 percent wage increase over the life of the contract, as well as generous moving provisions for the members affected by the company’s relocation of flight dispatch operations to Cincinnati.

“I’m very happy to see this agreement ratified,” said Local 210 Principal Officer George Miranda. “We have reached an agreement that’s amenable to everyone involved, and we’re looking forward to having a positive relationship with Atlas Air and Polar Air Cargo in the coming years.”
