Pilot strike goes Evergreen

MORE than five years’ worth of salary talks at Evergreen International Airlines have resulted in crewmembers voting in favour of a strike if contract negotiations fail.

More than 86 per cent of the 227 pilots and flight engineers represented by the Air Line Pilots Association cast a vote on 11 January, and 97 per cent of those voted ‘yes’.

The crewmembers, who rejected a tentative agreement in August, have been working under the terms of a contract reached 11 years ago with the airfreight company.

The parties are scheduled to resume negotiations in February and remain under the jurisdiction of the National Mediation Board (NMB). A strike could ensue only after the NMB releases the parties into economic self-help after the expiration of a 30-day cooling-off period.

Oregon-based Evergreen International Airlines, a subsidiary of Evergreen International Aviation, specialises in global air transportation and charter services for major airlines and freight forwarders.
