PSA’s Aircraft Maintenance Technicians Ratify New Collective Bargaining Agreement

DAYTON, Ohio – We are pleased to share that the PSA Airlines aviation maintenance technicians (AMT) represented by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) have ratified a new, four-year collective bargaining agreement.

We appreciate the time and effort the IAM, the representatives of the negotiating committee, and the National Mediation Board (NMB) invested in the negotiating process. A successful ratification vote would not have been possible without their partnership. They have helped us reach an agreement that recognizes our AMTs and related employees hard work and will cement PSA as the airline of choice for talented maintenance professionals.

The new contract provides wage increases beginning at $28.25/hour, including license premiums, along with other improvements to PSA’s industry-leading premiums and benefits.

“In this highly-competitive hiring environment, PSA is committed to attracting and retaining the best talent to ensure we are able to continue to support the operation safely and efficiently for our customers,” said Richard Ugarte, Vice President of Maintenance and Engineering.

In addition to industry-competitive pay, aviation maintenance technicians at PSA can expect:

  • $5,000 sign-on bonus and
  • Up to $12,500 for eligible experience bonuses and
  • A new toolbox or the $5,000 cash value of the toolbox
  • $7,500 in relocation assistance for all bases

PSA has maintenance facilities in Akron-Canton Airport (CAK), Charlotte-Douglas International Airport (CLT) Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG), Dayton International Airport (DAY), Greenville-Spartanburg (GSP), Norfolk International Airport (ORF), Pensacola International Airport (PNS) and Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV). As a technician at PSA, team members will be part of a dedicated group of professionals that places safety and compliance above all else.
