Technicians at Allegiant Air have overwhelmingly voted to ratify a two-year contract extension with the Teamsters. The total economic improvements in the contract amount to $70 million, including immediate average wage increases of 27 percent.
“Licensed airframe and powerplant technicians in the aviation industry have to uphold high safety and regulatory requirements to protect the flying public and flight crews,” said Joe Ferreira, Teamsters Airline Division Director. “These wage increases are well earned and reflect our members’ responsibility.”
The contract ratification follows another recent victory for workers at the company – in May, Allegiant Air flight dispatchers also ratified their extension, with more than 95 percent voting in favor of the deal.
