    Default Teamsters Ratify Contract With 40% Pay Hike For Maintenance Controllers

    Teamsters Local 455 has ratified its first contract with low-cost-carrier Frontier Airlines. The contract will be in place for five years but includes up to 10 years of pay raises.

    The new contract covers 12 maintenance controllers at Denver-headquartered Frontier. Local 455 also has material specialists, aircraft appearance agents and aircraft maintenance technician members at Frontier. Local 455 says the contract will result in a 40% increase in wages for the controllers.

    “The wage matrix is convoluted,” a Teamsters official says. “They were hiring controllers at higher wages than for those already employed. We agreed to a pre-contract salary increase earlier in the year and this contract locked in seniority and positions the controllers above technician wages. The controller requirements mirror the technicians but add years of experience over that of the mechanics.”

    The average pay had been roughly $60,000 a year and, the Teamster official says it now will exceed $100,000 annually. But controllers work 12-hour days, and a normal two-week pay period has 16 hours of overtime, paid at time and a half, built into the normal schedule.

    Frontier Airlines Mechanics Ratify Contract with Teamsters Local 455

    (DENVER) – Frontier Airlines mechanics have voted to ratify their most recent contract with the Teamsters by a margin of 96 percent. The agreement will be in effect until March 2023.

    “We are thrilled that we were able to ratify such a great agreement for our members at Frontier Airlines,” said Steve Vairma, Local 455 Secretary-Treasurer. “Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard to get this contract ratified.”

    “Much thanks to all of the workers who voted by a massive margin to implement their latest contract with Frontier Airlines,” said Capt. David Bourne, Teamsters Airline Division Director. “The enthusiasm and solidarity that our negotiating committee and Local 455 Business Agent Don Ramsey displayed during negotiations led to the outstanding wages and benefits that these workers will enjoy throughout the lifetime of this agreement.”

    The new agreement contains significant wage increases, including a 15 percent wage increase that went into effect upon the date of ratification, an overall wage increase of 29 percent over the lifetime of the agreement and a $3,000 signing bonus. Frontier aircraft appearance agents ratified their most recent contract unanimously last year, making this the second Frontier Airlines contract that Teamsters Local 455 has ratified by more than a 95 percent margin in less than six months.
