The International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) and ExpressJet ERJ have successfully concluded negotiations, resulting in a tentative agreement, the groups said.

The agreement covers approximately 500 mechanics, technicians and tool room attendants that are members of Teamster Locals 19, 210, 781, 783 and 964.

The IBT negotiating team was comprised of Teamsters Airline Division representatives, representatives from each of the locals and rank and file committee members. It contains significant improvements in wages while maintaining current benefit levels.

An agreement in principle was reached on December 6. The final contract language agreed upon by the union and ExpressJet ERJ will be put before the membership for a ratification vote beginning on Jan. 4, 2018, and the agreement will become amendable one year after the date of ratification.

Founded in 1903, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters represents 1.4 million hardworking men and women throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. Visit www.teamster.org for more information. Follow us on Twitter @Teamsters and "like" us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/teamsters.
