Pilots of Allegiant Air have initiated a card drive aimed at petitioning the National Mediation Board (NMB) to conduct a representation election seeking to decertify their current representation under the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) Local 2118 and elect the Air Line Pilots Association, International (ALPA) as their new representative.

Over the past decade, Allegiant pilots have faced numerous challenges with their current representation including emergency trusteeship, prolonged contract negotiations, inadequate training for Local 2118 committees, significant arbitration losses, rushed elections, insufficient resources, financial irresponsibility, and a strained union-management relationship. 2023 and 2024 have marked a breaking point for many pilots amidst a contentious electoral process, turnover of negotiating teams leading to inadequate progress on a new pilot contract, and leadership changes prompted by investigatory findings, leading to widespread disenfranchisement among the pilot group.

ALPA, known for its industry-leading contracts, robust pilot representation, effective lobbying efforts, and advancements in pilot safety and aeromedical work, offers Allegiant pilots a proven track record of advocacy and support. By electing ALPA, Allegiant pilots aim to establish stronger representation that aligns with their professional needs and aspirations, ensuring a secure career path and supporting the airline's ambitious growth plans.

Allegiant pilots are dedicated professionals who deserve the best possible representation. As the only labor union founded by pilots, ALPA's comprehensive resources and commitment to pilot advocacy make it the ideal choice to elevate the pilot profession and support the future of Allegiant pilots’ careers.

Allegiant Air employs nearly 1,500 pilots at 24 pilot bases across the United States, with ongoing pilot hiring to prepare for the addition of up to 130 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to its existing fleet of 126 Airbus A320 and A319 aircraft. Allegiant recently earned the number-three spot on the 2024 J.D. Power List of Top North American Airlines. The airline is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada.
