NFLPA Statement on Flexjet Pilots Union Vote
The National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) has learned that the professional pilots of Flexjet are currently voting in a decertification election. The election will determine whether Flexjet pilots will continue to have collective bargaining rights and representation on the job. From one professional union to another, the NFLPA urges all Flexjet pilots to vote to remain unionized. There is no substitute for union representation and a collective bargaining agreement. Unions ensure that members receive professional respect and due process. Collective bargaining provides members with a process to obtain a fair share of the revenues they generate for their employers.
The NFLPA has a proud history of hard fought labor disputes to advance the rights and interests of our members. Our members regularly support other unions fighting to protect their own members. Again today, the NFLPA and players of the National Football League proudly stand with the Teamsters and members of IBT Local 1108 in the effort to keep Flexjet a unionized air carrier.
