Pilots at Piedmont Airlines, a wholly-owned subsidiary of US Airways (LCC: Quote), represented by the Air Line Pilots Association, have voted to ratify a new five-year collective bargaining agreement that was reached on February 1, US Airways said Friday.
The new contract was ratified by Piedmont Airlines' 375 ALPA-represented pilots who are based in Charlottesville, Va.; Harrisburg, Pa.; New Bern, N.C.; Roanoke, Va. and Salisbury, Md.
The new contract includes a signing bonus, annual pay increases, and an agreement with US Airways main line to provide career progression opportunities for Piedmont pilots.
The pilots also agreed to contribute more to their health care, bringing their contributions more in line with the rest of the industry.
Piedmont Airlines flies regional routes in the central East Coast.
