21 / 12 / 2008
BY a more than two to one margin, nearly 900 crewmembers at Atlas Air Inc and Polar Air Cargo Worldwide, have voted to join the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.
“We are excited to welcome the Atlas and Polar flight crewmembers to the Teamsters,” said Jim Hoffa, Teamsters general president. “Our airline division, under the leadership of Captain David Bourne, will help negotiate a strong contract for the crewmembers. The Teamsters will also provide accountable representation.”
