Frontier Airlines announced that the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Union voted in support of temporary wage and benefit concessions requested by the Company. The Teamsters represent about 430 people at Frontier including mechanics and related workers, tool room employees, aircraft appearance agents and material specialists.
Frontier asked all of its employees, both represented and non-represented, to take temporary wage and benefit concessions to help the airline as it attempts to, among other things, secure debtor in possession financing. Frontier’s other two unions: the Frontier Airlines Pilots Association (FAPA) and the Transportation Workers Union (TWU), ratified agreements for those concessions two weeks ago. At the beginning of May, Menke and other members of the executive management team also agreed to up to 20% in wage and benefits concessions. Frontier plans to reexamine all the employee concessions in September based on the developing financial condition of the company and current economic conditions.
