On This Day in 1966
From July 8 to August 19, 1966, over 35,000 airline workers across the nation employed by five airlines went on strike. After several years of stilted wage gains as the airline industry invested heavily in jet technology, aircraft mechanics and other ground service workers represented by the International Association of Machinists (IAM) were anxious to share in the substantial profits of 1965. Facing a bargaining impasse between the IAM and the five carriers (United, Northwest, National, Trans World and Eastern) covered in the industry’s first multi-carrier labor contract, a Presidential Emergency Board presented a “compromise” package. In the summer of 1966, IAM members rejected this compromise and walked off the job in the largest strike in airline history. For 43 days during the peak summer travel season, 60 percent of the U.S. commercial airline industry was literally inoperative as 35,000 workers stayed out on strike.

Allen Foods members in attendance at last month’s contract ratification meeting unanimously approved a new collective bargaining agreement providing a 90-cent per hour wage increase over the contract's three-year term; improves medical; and provides retroactive pay back to January 2019. Members can also participate in the Teamster Members Pension Plan.

Drivers at J.W. Treuth ratified in June a three-year contract providing above-average annual wage increases, a signing bonus, and increases to the pension plan. In addition, the sick leave policy is updated to comply with Maryland law.

A successor contract with First Transit Baltimore MTA was ratified in June by members. Highlights of the three-year agreement include significant wage increases; gains in paid time off (PTO); the addition of a healthcare HMO option in the second year of the agreement that offers lower deductibles; and retroactivity back to January 2019.

Members employed at Hertz/BWI approved in June a three-year contract providing wage increases; raises start rates for all classifications; creates an overnight shift differential, and increases the afternoon shift differential; and maintains Health and Welfare. In addition, the contract provides gains in paid time off for all members.

A new contract covering drivers at Acme Paper is in place. The agreement provides wage increases in each year of the five-year term; maintains 54 employees at the top-tier pay rate; increases company contributions to the 401(k) each year and the company match in the second through fifth year; and adds sick leave at 40 hours per contract year in compliance with Maryland law.

Holly Poultry drivers ratified a five-year contract providing wage increases over the term.
