Teamsters Local 618 members approve 5-year contract

Teamster pilots voted to approve a new, five-year contract at GoJet Airlines by a nearly 2-to-1 margin, the union said.

There are over 520 members in the bargaining unit covered by the agreement.

The pilots will see significant quality of life improvements in this contract, including the implementation of a commuting policy where all lodging expenses will be paid for by the company. Pilots will also see a major increase in scope of the work rules and grievances protections.

The contract is retroactive to March 1, 2016, and will take effect immediately upon ratification.

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