MIAMI—Today, Amerijet International pilots, represented by the Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l (ALPA), voted to ratify a tentative agreement reached with Amerijet International Inc. Out of the 120 eligible pilots who voted, 80 percent voted in favor of the new collective bargaining agreement. The three-year deal includes pay raises upwards of 45 percent, as well as improvements to schedules, work rules, and retirement security.  
 

“I am thrilled that our pilots demonstrated their unity and commitment to attain a collective agreement that reflects the contributions we bring to the success of our airline,” said Capt. Tim Millar, chair of the Amerijet ALPA Master Executive Council. “The days of our pilots working under an incredibly subpar and outdated contract will soon be over. With the improvements in pay, quality of life, retirement, and insurance, I believe we will enable the company to recruit and retain pilots to sustain our continued growth into new markets.”

The agreement is effective June 26, 2023.

 
Founded in 1931, ALPA is the largest airline pilot union in the world and represents more than 74,000 pilots, including nearly 300 Amerijet pilots, at 42 airlines in the United States and Canada.
