Kalitta Air pilots vote to authorise strike

Pilots employed by Kalitta Air have voted to authorise a strike against the Michigan-based cargo airline. Kalitta Air operates a fleet of Boeing 747 aircraft which support the global network of DHL Express.

“The pilots of Kalitta Air have sent a strong message to the airline’s management and their customers, including DHL, and potential customers,” said Scott Nelson, the chairman of the Airline Professionals Association (APA) Teamsters Local 1224 Kalitta Air Executive Council.

“Our members are prepared to strike over management delay tactics, violations of federal law, mistreatment of pilots and their continuing refusal to agree to a significantly-improved labor contract.”

In a statement issued yesterday (9 December), the union stated: “ABX Air, Inc., Atlas Air, Inc. and Southern Air, Inc. also perform flight operations in support of the DHL Express global network. Following the announcement of the strike authorization vote, union leadership at those carriers pledged to support the Kalitta pilots in the event of a strike.”

The contract negotiations are continuing.
