17:52 EDTUPSUPS pilots President issues statement on FedEx/ALPA tentative agreement
The following statement is from Captain Robert Travis, President of the Independent Pilots Association regarding the tentative pilot labor agreement between FedEx (FDX) and ALPA: "We congratulate our pilot peers and FedEx on reaching a new tentative collective bargaining agreement. While we have not seen the details, the IPA will refrain from commenting on the merits of the tentative agreement until the ALPA ratification process has been completed. If approved, however, the FedEx pilot contract will bring labor peace to our largest competitor. In sharp contrast, UPS (UPS) management has created a bitter standoff with its pilot employees, unnecessarily dragging out contract talks for four years. UPS must not allow itself to be left behind by FedEx. The IPA calls on UPS management to work with its pilots to expeditiously achieve an agreement."
