Aloha Air Cargo service workers join Teamsters
20 / 04 / 2009
FLEET service workers at Aloha Air Cargo voted overwhelmingly to join the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.
“We welcome the Aloha Air Cargo fleet service workers to the Teamsters,” said Captain David Bourne, director of the Teamsters Airline Division. “We will work hard to provide them with top-notch representation and negotiate a good contract.”
The carrier is comprised of the cargo operations of the former Aloha Airlines, which ceased operation as a passenger airline on 31 March last year.
The Teamsters Airline Division represents more than 40,000 airline employees.
The union was infamous for ties with the Mafia and the mysterious disapperance of Jimmy Hoffa in the 1950s.
