(WASHINGTON) – Yesterday the International Brotherhood of Teamsters requested that the National Mediation Board (NMB) oversee negotiations for a collective bargaining agreement covering over 2,000 flight attendants at Republic Airways.

“Our members are extraordinary aviation professionals responsible for ensuring exceptional safety and customer service for thousands of passengers each and every day,” said Captain David Bourne, Director of the Teamsters Airline Division. “We look forward to a productive conversation with the company and the NMB. I’m confident that all parties can work together to craft an agreement amenable to everyone involved.”
