Atlas Southern DHL Pilots Protest
Atlas Southern DHL Pilots Protest

     Atlas Air, Southern Air and ABX Air, (ABX pilots fly for DHL) protested Thursday April 11 at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) “to raise alarm about the worsening problems at their carriers and to call for an end to stalled contract negotiations.”
     “CVG is the largest hub for each of the airlines,” Airline Professionals Association (APA), Teamsters Local 1224 which represent the pilots said.
     Atlas Air and Southern Air are owned by Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings (AAWW) while ABX Air Inc. is a subsidiary of Air Transport Services Group (ATSG).
     AAWW and ATSG’s major customers include Amazon, DHL, the Armed Forces and other organizations.
     The pilots have been trying to improve their lot with Atlas and the rest for some time now, apparently with no luck.
      The pilots say that they face serious operational problems that are exacerbated by labor contracts far below industry standards.
     Reportedly more than 60 percent of pilots who participated in a recent survey about the working conditions are preparing to leave their carrier and are seeking work elsewhere.
