Republic Airways, the parent company of US regional carriers Shuttle America and Republic Airlines, has finalised a three-year agreement with its pilots union over working conditions.

The International Brotherhood of Teamsters’ Local 357, which represents 2,100 Republic Airways pilots, voted by a margin of 76 per cent to accept the new contract which will take effect from November 1.

The new deal is worth around $50m over the three years and Republic said it includes “significant improvements” in work rules and pilot quality of life.

David Bourne, Teamsters' airline division director, said: “After several years of negotiations and mediation, we are glad Republic pilots have a contract that reflects their significant contributions to the company and the airline industry.”
