Strike Against Allegiant Airlines Averted By Court Order
KGVO News received the following press release from Allegiant Airlines early Thursday morning, April 2.
Allegiant Air has received a court order, pilots will resume flying.
A court in Las Vegas has issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) against International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 1224, which represents the Allegiant pilots.
Allegiant has every reason to believe that the Teamsters will honor the court's instructions and will not be able to continue with their illegal intention to strike. This order will prevent a threatened pilots' strike which would have left potentially thousands of travelers with cancelled flights over the Easter holiday weekend. Based on this,
All scheduled Allegiant flights are expected to operate normally.
With the threat of an imminent strike over, Allegiant hopes that both parties can now focus on the next federally mediated negotiating session, scheduled for late April.
Allegiant serves the Missoula area, as well as other cities in Montana.
