Atlas Air, Polar Air Cargo flight dispatchers ratify contract extension

Teamster flight dispatchers at Atlas Air, Inc. and Polar Air Cargo have voted to ratify changes to their existing contract, the union said.

The amended agreement, which was set to expire in November, has been extended for another four years and becomes amendable on November 12, 2021.

New provisions of the tentative agreement include a 30% wage increase over the life of the contract, as well as moving provisions for members affected by the company´s relocation of flight dispatch operations to Cincinnati, Ohio.

Local 210 Principal Officer George Miranda said “We have reached an agreement that´s amenable to everyone involved, and we´re looking forward to having a positive relationship with Atlas Air and Polar Air Cargo in the coming years.”
