Teamsters seek management accountability at Flexjet, Flight Options

The Teamsters Union has increased pressure on Flexjet and Flight Options management, calling on customers of the airlines to tell management to prioritize its workers.

The Teamsters have won multiple actions for wrongful terminations at Flexjet and Flight Options, most recently in 2015 when a court-approved arbitrator ordered that Flight Options rehire three pilots who were fired for organizing.

Currently, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Teamsters Airline Division and Local 1108 are suing Flexjet and Flight Options, stating that the companies are again violating the Railway Labor Act, this time by refusing to negotiate with the union.

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