Teamsters, Mechanics Secure $99,000 Settlement from ABX Air

Company Agrees To Reduce Workers’ Disciplinary Charges, Remind Managers of Employees’ Rights

April 3, 2008

ABX Air has agreed to a settlement in a lawsuit the Teamsters Union filed on behalf of 17 wrongly terminated and disciplined mechanics. The agreement includes a $99,000 settlement for two mechanics, and the removal or lessening of disciplinary charges or evaluations that affected more than 20 employees’ work records.

“This is a great settlement and I’m happy with it,” said Greg Miller, a 14-year ABX Air mechanic who received a $59,500 settlement for his termination. “It shows that the Teamsters know how to fight ABX Air to make sure workers’ rights are not stomped on.”

This is a good example of what can be done when you have the Teamsters to back us up!
