    Default Workers at Air Express International Vote to Approve New Teamsters Contract

    (WASHINGTON) – Workers at Air Express International (AEI), an international air freight business, have voted overwhelmingly to approve a new national contract covering about 800 workers across the United States. AEI is part of the DHL Global Forwarding network, a subsidiary of DP-DHL based out of Bonn, Germany.

    “Despite AEI posting losses in the United States over the past three years stemming from the failed implementation of a 2016 new freight processing system, we were able to negotiate wage increases in each year of the new three-year contract, along with hourly contribution increases to maintain full health and welfare benefits over the next three years,” said Bill Hamilton, Director of the Teamsters Express Division.

    “In addition, the national contract maintains all current working conditions and also includes strong language to protect jobs and to curtail subcontracting. It was these strong job protections that allowed Teamsters with AEI to maintain their working conditions and staffing levels despite a very turbulent three years with this employer in the U.S. Fortunately, AEI seems to have stabilized itself over the past six months, which is good news for the Teamsters employed there and the air freight industry in general. We thank the membership for its patience and faith in the bargaining process over the past several months.”

    AEI Teamsters from nine local unions also ratified nine regional or supplemental contracts.

    These Teamsters have agreed to a contract extension though December 2021.

    TEAMSTERS AT AIR EXPRESS INTERNATIONAL VOTE TO APPROVE ONE-YEAR CONTRACT EXTENSION
    Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Teamsters at Air Express International (AEI) have overwhelmingly approved a one-year contract extension through December 31, 2021.
    AEI Teamsters voted over the past several days at local unions, and they approved the extension by a 92-percent margin. About 77 percent of the eligible bargaining unit members voted.
    The extension agreement, which covers approximately 850 members, provides a general wage increase of $.50 per hour to bargaining unit employees. It also includes an increase in benefit fund contributions for 2021 in order to maintain benefits.
