Allegiant Dispatchers Vote to End Representation by IBT

LAS VEGAS, April 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today Allegiant Air dispatchers completed an election in which they voted for "no representation," ending their representation by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. The election was called for by the dispatchers in February and was overseen by the National Mediation Board. Representation of the dispatchers by the IBT began in December of 2012.

Allegiant looks forward to working with the flight dispatchers in a direct relationship with regard to safety, pay and working conditions.
