Following the previous agreement becoming amendable in January 2015, the majority of pilots at SkyWest Airlines have voted to accept a new three-year pay agreement which is effective immediately and which will run until mid-2018.
The agreement provides salary increases for all pilots, a substantial increase to first-year pay, guaranteed profit-sharing as well as a number of enhancements to work rules.
“SkyWest pilots are top of our industry, and this agreement reflects that position,” stated Mike Thompson, chief operating officer, SkyWest Airlines. “This vote reaffirms SkyWest's position as an industry leader and ensures we are best positioned for future opportunity. We look forward to continuing to work with our pilots and all SkyWest people to further advance SkyWest's position as the airline and employer of choice.”
