FedEx reaches tentative agreement with pilots’ union

FedEx pilot representatives and company management have reached a tentative agreement on an amended collective bargaining agreement after years of discussions.
The Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l (ALPA) said this week that the two negotiating parties had reached an agreement, although terms need to be reviewed and approved by the FedEx ALPA Master Executive Council (MEC) and then ratified in a vote by 4,000 pilots.
Terms of the agreement, which will run until 2021, were not released.
FedEx ALPA Master Executive Council (MEC) chairman Captain Chuck Dyer said: “The process has not always been easy, but our pilots and their families remained steadfast in their support of our Negotiating Committee.
“The MEC has a rigorous process when it comes to evaluating these types of agreements, and we look forward to fully vetting this tentative agreement.”
The parties have been actively negotiating since 2011 under a special interim discussions agreement.
Formal bargaining began in January 2013 and in October 2014 FedEx management filed for mediation with the National Mediation Board and negotiations have been conducted under NMB guidance since then.
