FedEx Pilots Reject Tentative Agreement

Memphis—Today, FedEx pilots rejected a tentative agreement with the company by a vote of 57 percent to 43 percent.

“Our members have spoken and we will now regroup and prepare for the next steps. In the coming weeks, the FedEx ALPA leadership will meet to establish a timeline for assessing pilot group priorities moving forward. FedEx pilots remain unified and that will drive a new path that will help produce an agreement that all FedEx pilots will be proud to support,” said Capt. Chris Norman, FedEx ALPA chair.

Moving forward, it is expected that the National Mediation Board will convene a status conference with both parties. However, there is no time requirement for this to occur.

Founded in 1931, ALPA is the largest airline pilot union in the world and represents more than 74,000 pilots at 42 U.S. and Canadian airlines. Visit or follow us on Twitter @ALPAPilots.
