Flight Options and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 1108, the union representing the pilot group, have announced “an unprecedented expression of mutual cooperation.” The two parties “have pledged to put their past differences aside and instead dedicate their efforts to achieving common goals.” In March 2006, the Flight Options pilots voted to be represented by the IBT and have been seeking their first contract ever since. Meanwhile, Flight Options reinstated the 70 pilots terminated in May, complete with back pay, according to Flight Options chairman Kenn Ricci.
