    ATLANTIC AVIATION WORKERS JOIN LOCAL 89


    On April 17, workers at Atlantic Aviation in Louisville, Kentucky voted in favor of joining Teamsters Local 89 by a 3-1 margin. The new bargaining unit includes 24 workers who fuel private and commercial aircraft at Standiford Field in Louisville.

    The workers sought representation by the Teamsters after Atlantic Aviation took away their overtime pay, insurance benefits, seniority rights and job security.

    “One prime example was when the company fired a 23-year worker for economic purposes,” said Kevin Evans, an organizer for Local 89. “This worker, who had earned a lot of vacation time and was making $19 per hour, was terminated and replaced with a worker earning only $10.50.”

    Teamsters Local 89 welcomes our new brothers & sisters and look forward to working together to negotiate a decent contract for these workers.
