Teamsters Throw Salt in the Wound

teamsters Teamsters Throw Salt in the WoundStruggling Republic Airways lost $55 million in the first quarter of this year, and developed a $120 million plan to restructure the finances of part of its business, Frontier Airlines. The restructure included concessions from the Frontier Airline Pilots Association, which they agreed to.

However, the Teamsters took the issue to court, filing a lawsuit asking the U.S. District Court in Denver to nullify the agreement, and to file an injunction forcing Frontier and Republic to deal only with the Teamsters, who won representation in June for all of Republic’s pilot groups. The Teamsters contend that Frontier and Republic Airways conspired to interfere with the election in exchange for FAPA agreeing to the concessions.
