CitationAir became the third of the four major jet fractional providers to have a unionized pilot workforce last month, with 52 percent of the more than 350 CitationAir pilots voting in favor of representation. Pilot voting turnout was “high,” International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) 1108 president Mat Slinghof told AIN, and only a simple majority (50 percent plus one vote) was needed for the union to be voted in. IBT Local 1108, the union for Flight Options pilots, will represent the pilot group. A newly established CitationAir Pilots Leadership Council will lead the CitationAir pilot union and handle collective bargaining with the company in the interim until a master executive council can be elected. CitationAir officials did not comment on the voting outcome.
