Teamster pilots ratify contract extension at Republic Airline



Republic Airline pilots who are members of Teamsters Local 357 have ratified a contract extension of their 2015 collective bargaining agreement.

The extension includes immediate pay raises retroactive to January 1, 2018. Additional raises over the next 23 months provide for a total wage increase of 14 to 28 percent, dependent upon length of service. In addition to the wage increase, improvements were made to vacation accruals and company retirement contributions.

The agreement was reached well ahead of an October 2018 amendable date. The new amendable date is January 1, 2021.

Teamsters Local 357, based in Plainfield, Indiana, represents over 2,000 pilots flying for Republic.
