NMB dismisses Teamster challenges at Flexjet

National Mediation Board (NMB) has dismissed challenges filed by Flexjet and Flight Options against the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the board said.

Allegations stem from a December 2015 election where the Teamsters were chosen to represent Flexjet and Flight Options pilots as a single unit when the two companies merged under the umbrella of One Sky, LLC. The company´s challenges alleged that the Teamsters interfered in the representation election, tainting laboratory conditions. The NMB dismissed these charges finding that the company had failed to state a prima facie case of interference.

Founded in 1903, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters represents 1.4 million men and women throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
