Teamsters Local Union 357 welcomes you. Our mission is to protect and enhance the careers of our members.

We do this through four means: contract negotiations, contract administration, career preservation services, and public advocacy.


Our members are a diverse group of aviators. We represent the flightdeck crewmembers of the following airlines:

·         Republic Airlines

·         Shuttle America

Republic and Shuttle America are owned by Indianapolis-based Republic Airways Holdings.  On December 31, 2014, Chautauqua Airlines ended flight operations; all services and the fleet were absorbed into Shuttle America.


Our experienced pilot group is in charge of a wide fleet of jet and turboprop aircraft, including the Embraer E-190, Embraer E-170 & E-175, Embraer E-140 & E-145 and the Bombardier Q400.


Teamsters Local Union 357 was chartered by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters on July 1, 2010, for the purpose of providing representation, assistance, and security for flightdeck crewmembers employed by Republic Airways, Inc.

The Local is headquartered in Plainfield, Indiana, and represents over 2,100 crewmembers, based in cities across the United States.

On October 4, 2010, IBT Local 357 filed for single carrier status to integrate three additional airlines into one seniority list, which is required by the scope language in our current collective bargaining agreement, as they were all acquired by Republic Airways Holdings, Inc. Those three airlines are:

·         Frontier Airlines

·         Midwest Airlines

·         Lynx Airlines

On June 12, 2014, following the sale of the Frontier Airline, the pilots of Frontier voted to re-certify their former union, FAPA.

Our current contract was ratified in Fall 2015.
