Flexjet supports pilots effort to decertify union

Flexjet LLC, a provider of fractional jet ownership and the only provider to offer Red Label by Flexjet, has announced support of its pilots´ right to change their union representation, the company said.

Flexjet has been notified by the National Mediation Board (NMB) that its pilots filed an application with the NMB to hold an election to decertify the Teamsters Local 1108 as their union. This comes a little more than two years after the pilots very narrowly approved representation.

Despite opposition by the union, Flexjet created Red Label, an industry-disrupting program that has become a catalyst for unprecedented growth within the company. The program created a bond between Flexjet pilots and their employer that led to their demand for change. In addition to offering customers the best aircraft in the industry, Red Label gives pilots the ability to participate in an industry-first environment.

Flexjet first entered the fractional jet ownership market in 1995. Flexjet offers fractional jet ownership and leasing. Flexjet´s fractional aircraft program is the first in the world to be recognized as achieving the Air Charter Safety Foundation´s Industry Audit Standard, is the first and only company to be honored with 19 FAA Diamond Awards for Excellence, upholds an ARG/US Platinum Safety Rating and is IS-BAO compliant.
