International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 1108, the union for Flight Options’ 500 pilots, early last month reached a tentative agreement for a first contract with the Cleveland-based fractional provider. The agreement comes some four years after the union came on the property and, if ratified, will end years of sometimes acrimonious negotiations. According to Local 1108, the tentative agreement contains several improvements, including across-the-board pay increases, longevity-based salary increases, scope and job security protections, additional paid time off, overtime provisions, an expanded crew basing system and health insurance security. Union members will vote on the proposed contract this month.
