Teamsters invoke expedited mediation at Sun Country Airlines

International Brotherhood of Teamsters, airline division and Teamsters local 120 have invoked a provision written into a 2014 letter of agreement with Sun Country Airlines after the company employed stall tactics at the bargaining table during a critical juncture of contract negotiations with Teamster flight attendants last week, the company said.

The provision, which takes the matter to the national mediation board, is intended to stop delay tactics by the company and ensure that negotiations remain serious and substantive.

The national mediation Board has assigned Eva Durham to arbitrate the Teamsters´ case.

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