The Teamsters target the pilots of Florida West for unionization

The Teamsters Airline Division has announced the start of a new initiative to organize the pilots at Florida West International Airways (2nd) (Miami). The pilots fly routes throughout the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean.

According to the union, “Teamsters Local Union 1224, an airline-specific chapter based in Wilmington, Ohio, will provide organizers and personnel with knowledge of the international air cargo industry to assist Local Union 769 in Miami, Florida with the campaign.”

If unionized, the FWIA pilots will be represented by Teamsters Local Union 769 in Miami.
