NetJets Unions Coalition Announces Multi-Site Informational Picket on Monday, Sept. 22

PR Newswire

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 18. 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The NetJets Unions Coalition is an alliance comprised of the NetJets Association of Shared Aircraft Pilots (NJASAP), the collective bargaining agent for the 3,000-plus pilots who fly in the service of NetJets, and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 284, which represents approximately 500 NetJets dispatchers, flight attendants, maintenance controllers, mechanics and stock clerks. NetJets is a Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK) subsidiary.

WHAT: Informational picketing by unionized NetJets employees – all of whom are currently engaged in collective bargaining negotiations with NetJets – in three locations

WHERE: NetJets Corporate Offices, 4111 Bridgeway Ave., Columbus, Ohio
Landmark Aviation, 101 Charles A. Lindbergh Dr., Teterboro, NJ
KSNA Signature Flight Support, 19301 Campus Dr, Santa Ana, Calif.

WHEN: Monday, Sept. 22, 2014, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. (local time)

WHY:

  • Senior management at NetJets is engaged in collective bargaining negotiations with each of its unionized employee groups and progress has been painstakingly slow due to management's unjustifiable demands for concessions.
  • Despite record profitability, NetJets continues to demand major concessions – diminished wages, benefits and work rules – from the hard working men and women who directly contributed to its stellar financial performance.
  • While demanding contract concessions from unionized employees, profit-sharing checks are being handed out to all levels of management and non-union employees.
  • The flight attendants have been in contract talks for more than three years and, earlier this year, entered government-supervised mediation to settle the dispute.
