ATI, CCI Pilots’ Merger in Final Stages
January 22, 2013 - Last week, Arbitrator Richard Bloch issued the integrated seniority list (ISL) award to the Air Transport International and Capital Cargo MECs Merger Committee representatives.

The decision followed the guidelines set forth in ALPA Merger Policy and considered the state of each airline and the status and makeup of the respective pilot workforces, including their career expectations and longevity. The decision included a two-year fence that prohibits pilots from being awarded or displaced to a vacancy on the other carrier’s aircraft. Arbitrator Bloch also maintained the separate list for the professional flight engineers, now arranged by date of hire, as provided for in the joint contract.
