With an 86 percent vote in favor, Endeavor Air pilots have agreed to ratify their contract to include the highest hourly rates in the regional airline industry for all pilots.
More than 82 percent of eligible pilots voted for the new Tentative Agreement, which amends the existing pilot contract to start pilot pay at $50.16 per hour – a more than $20 per hour increase – and raises hourly rates for all pilots, while extending the labor deal through the end of 2024.
“This deal was made possible because of years of excellent operational performance, a tireless commitment to safety, and by taking care of our customers better than any regional airline in the industry,” Ryan Gumm, CEO, Endeavor Air, said in a statement to employees shortly after the results of the ratification vote were announced.
“This agreement is a recognition of our people, first and foremost. Piece by piece, you all have contributed to casting the foundation by which our future growth and opportunities will be built. This agreement helps to solidify the path we’re on together here at Endeavor, and that’s something we should all be proud to be a part of.”
The new agreement goes into effect on January 1, 2018. To learn more or apply to join the Endeavor team, please visit http://www.EndeavorAir.com/pilots.
