Dispatchers at Atlas Air and Polar Air Cargo, represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, have reached their first tentative agreement with airline management under the union's representation.

The dispatchers voted in favour of Teamster representation in 2008 and started negotiations with the carrier in 2009. The union says the final agreement includes several work rule changes and economic improvements.

A vote to ratify the tentative agreement "is anticipated very soon", the union says.
