Default Cal Mec Supports Striking Amerijet Pilots


Sep. 1, 2009

The pilots and flight engineers of Amerijet, represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 769, have been locked in a bitter dispute with management while trying to negotiate their first contract. In July, the National Mediation Board released them to a 30-day cooling off period. Shortly before midnight on August 26, 2009, management walked out of the negotiations. The cooling off period expired at 12:01 am on August 27, 2009; at which point the Amerijet pilots and flight engineers were released to self-help. The Amerijet pilots went on strike at 1630 EDT that afternoon.

Below is a link to the article that the IBT has put out regarding the Amerijet strike.

While Amerijet may not be an ALPA carrier, it is imperative that we support all airline pilots in a fight for a fair and equitable contract. If anyone is in the Miami area and is willing to support the pilots and flight engineers of Amerijet, they will be picketing the offices of the airline 24/7. The offices are located next to the ATC tower in Cargo City at Miami International Airport.The address is:

6185 NW 18 ST BLG 716-B
MIAMI, FL 33142

Thank you and fly safely.

Ditto for Council 22 at FedEx. I will be there walking the line with our brother Teamsters tonight. I hope to see FedEx pilots there to show their support.

For those that need directions to the location mentioned in some previous posts:

1) Amerijet's Cargo City Facility--
6185 NW 18th St
Miami, FL 33126

Generic directions from the Palmetto Expressway/State Route 826 (the Palmetto is the main north/south corridor that isn't I-95):
Exit on NW 25TH St going east
Turn right (south) on NW 67TH Ave
Turn left on NW 22ND St
Follow this to the end; the road will curve turn right after the control tower
Make the first left turn onto NW 18th Street
Towers A and B are the ones usually used by Amerijet
