Teamsters Local 1224 Files Suit Against ABX Air, Inc
Jul 31 12
Teamsters Local 1224 announced they have filed a lawsuit against ABX Air Inc. over a captain's termination for exercising his FAA-mandated authority to ensure safe flight operations and his refusal to operate the aircraft in a manner that was prohibited by FAA-approved aircraft procedures. The union said that the lawsuit stems from an incident in June, in which an ABX Air captain operating in Japan requested changes to a flight plan after identifying safety concerns. The captain was terminated last week following his refusal to sign a coerced statement that would have required him to acknowledge that his reasons for questioning the flight's safety were invalid and that he had unreasonably used his captain's authority. The pilot, who has more than 25 years of experience as a captain, would have completed his 28th year with ABX Air in November. He has no previous history of discipline at ABX Air. The union said that the complaint filed argues that discharging a captain for reasonably exercising his authority has a ‘chilling effect’ on a pilot's ability to make decisions concerning the safe operation of his aircraft. It is clear this is what ABX intended. To make sure this effect was felt by all its captains, the union said, ABX took the extraordinary step of publicly announcing this captain's firing, and why, to every flight crew member it employs, even before the pilot himself was officially notified. To a larger extent, that effect ripples throughout the industry impacting aviation safety at a national level. The Teamsters are seeking the reinstatement of the captain's employment, as well as future protections for similarly situated flight crews who are authorized to make judgment calls pertaining to a flight's safety, or lack thereof. The complaint was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio Western Division by the Dayton, Ohio law firm Doll, Jansen, Ford & Rakay.
