Evergreen International Airlines’ flight crews reject the tentative agreement

Evergreen International Airlines (Marana) crewmembers, represented by the Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l (ALPA), rejected a tentative collective bargaining agreement with management. Ninety-two percent of EIA crewmembers participated in the ratification process. Ninety-six percent of voting members cast ballots against accepting the tentative agreement.

ALPA and management negotiated for two-and-a-half years. Prior to the Evergreen crewmembers joining ALPA in 2007, negotiations were extended for over three years between the crewmembers’ independent union, The Aviators Group, and management. Mediated talks began in 2005 under the supervision of the National Mediation Board (NMB). The tentative agreement was reached in April 2010.
