    Default Atlas Air Prevails in Court Ruling Against Pilot Union for Illegal Slowdown

    PURCHASE, N.Y., July 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Atlas Air, Inc. and Polar Air Cargo Worldwide, Inc. (collectively, “Atlas” or the “Company”), subsidiaries of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: AAWW), today said that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has affirmed a federal district court ruling that ordered the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Airline Division, and Local Union No. 1224 (collectively, the “IBT”) to stop an intentional and illegal work slowdown by Atlas pilots in violation of the Railway Labor Act (“RLA”). The unanimous ruling from a three-judge panel blocks the union from continuing to engage in improper activities such as excessive sick calls on short notice or refusing to work overtime.

    In denying the IBT’s appeal, the Court of Appeals also affirmed the District Court’s decision that the IBT must maintain the status quo under the RLA and must continue to take affirmative action to prevent and to refrain from any form of interference with the Company’s operations.

    “We are very satisfied with this unanimous ruling from a three-judge panel, which affirms and sustains the preliminary injunction that was entered into 2017,” said William J. Flynn, Chief Executive Officer of Atlas Air Worldwide.

    Arbitrator rules in favor of Atlas Air in its labor dispute with pilots
    Aug 28, 2019: Atlas Air pilots, who fly packages for companies such as Amazon and DHL, lost the legal battle to secure a new work contract.

    A statement from the parent company, Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, informed us that “The August 26, 2019 arbitration decision affirms that the merger provisions of the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) apply in connection with Atlas Air’s acquisition of Southern Air, Inc. in April 2016.”

    While this is a win for Atlas Air, reports suggest that the union that represents its pilots, the Airline Professionals Association, Teamsters Local 1224, will “pursue all remaining legal options” to avoid a contract resolved by an arbitrator.

    The union has been in violation of the existing CBA by refusing to follow the merger provisions for a new joint collective bargaining agreement (JCBA), and by failing to present an integrated pilot seniority list to the company.

    In a separate, but related, proceeding, the union was also found to be in violation of the Southern Air CBA for refusing to follow the merger provisions for this JCBA on behalf of the Southern Air pilots.

    Default Atlas Air Pilots Announce Formation of Local 2750

    (WASHINGTON) – At the request of the pilots at Atlas Air, Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa and the Teamsters General Executive Board approved the formation of Teamsters Local 2750, a newly created local union dedicated to the pilots.

    There are about 2,000 pilots who will be members of the union which will be headquartered in Ohio.

    “We’re excited about this great opportunity, which is part of our natural journey through unionism as we grow in numbers,” said Bob Kirchner, chairman of the pilots’ seven-member Executive Council and an Atlas Air pilot. “We have a great relationship with Local 1224 and we’re grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of the local. It’s because we’ve come together and grown over the years that we have this opportunity to form Local 2750 and we look forward to what is to come.”

    Atlas Air services customers in e-commerce, including Amazon and DHL, as well as the U.S. Military.

    “As our negotiations with Atlas for a collective bargaining agreement continue, we expect to make progress with our motivated group of Local 2750 pilots. Over the coming weeks, we will keep the pilots group informed on developments with our local and more ways they can get involved in their union,” Kirchner said.

    Atlas Air and Southern Air Prevail in Appeals Court Ruling Against Teamsters Pilot Union

    PURCHASE, N.Y., Nov. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. (AAWW) today confirmed that its subsidiaries Atlas Air, Inc. and Southern Air, Inc. have prevailed in another legal dispute with the union that represents its pilots in ongoing negotiations, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.

    The decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit affirms a March 13, 2018, decision by the Southern District Court of New York compelling the Teamsters to arbitrate whether the merger provisions in Atlas Air and Southern Air’s collective bargaining agreements apply to the bargaining process. Today’s decision, as well as two binding decisions by arbitrators rendered in favor of both Atlas Air and Southern Air this summer, have made clear that IBT must engage in the current Atlas Air and Southern Air collective bargaining agreements’ expedited and defined process for achieving a joint collective bargaining agreement.

    In a separate labor-related decision rendered in July 2019, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia unanimously affirmed a federal district court ruling in November 2017 that ordered the union to stop an intentional and illegal work slowdown by Atlas Air pilots in violation of the Railway Labor Act. The unanimous ruling from a three-judge panel upheld the lower-court order that blocked the union from continuing to engage in improper activities such as excessive sick calls on short notice or refusing to volunteer for open time.
