LAS VEGAS – Allegiant, the airline that provides service to Myrtle Beach and Tampa-St. Pete from Stewart Airport, has reached a tentative contract agreement with its pilots, represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.
The tentative agreement must be voted on and ratified by Allegiant pilots. Results are expected in late July.
“This contract, once approved by our pilots, will allow us to move into a new chapter at Allegiant,” said Maury Gallagher, chief executive officer. “Our pilots are a vital part of our team, and we are looking forward to building a better future with them and for them.”
Chief Operating Officer Jude Bricker said the agreement “improves the lives of our pilots while maintaining our ability to offer a great, low-cost product to our customers.” He also said the National Labor Relations Board and mediator were “instrumental in helping us to reach an agreement.”
