FDX Pilots Sign B-767 LOA
The FedEx Express pilots recently signed a
letter of agreement on the introduction of the B-767 aircraft at the carrier.
This agreement was approved by the membership with more than 75 percent voter
participation and over 87 percent in favor. Meanwhile, FDX ALPA remains in
Section 6 bargaining with FedEx Express.
“This LOA encompasses industry-leading provisions that respect seniority
without concessions,” stated MEC chairman Capt. Scott Stratton. “While there are
some new concepts, this agreement largely applies existing CBA provisions to the
unique situation that the combination of B-767/B-757 represents for FedEx
Express pilots. Maintaining the integrity of our existing agreement was a
central goal,” he added.
Pilot participation in the ratification process bodes well
for the remaining Section 6 bargaining under way since January 2013.
“The pilot participation rate in this LOA ballot indicates to us and FedEx
Express that our pilots are engaged. We are hopeful that this agreement and
ratification process will serve as a springboard to a new CBA in the near
future. I am proud to say that our team performed extremely well throughout this
process,” said Stratton.
