Our experienced pilot group is in charge of a wide fleet of jet and turboprop aircraft, including the

HISTORY OF LOCAL 357
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 2,800 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
