Pilots assemble near ATSG meeting


While Wilmington-based Air Transport Services Group Inc. (ATSG) held its annual shareholders meeting Thursday at Roberts Centre, a group of pilots assembled nearby to express concerns. “ABX management has allowed our [ABX Air pilots] contract negotiations to languish for more than three and a half years,” states Rick Ziebarth with the Airline Professionals Association | Teamsters Local Union 1224 in a May 9 letter to the ATSG Board of Directors and ATSG executive officers. “Demonstrating the ominous landscape before us is the fact that more than 30 percent of new ABX pilots hired in 2016 and 2017 have already left for other carriers,” Ziebarth wrote. A phone message seeking comment was left Thursday at ATSG and was not immediately returned.
