Dispatchers at Atlas Air and Polar Air Cargo have ratified a five-year collective bargaining agreement with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 210.

"We achieved all of our objectives in this process, including preserving productive work rules and flexibility, while maintaining competitive compensation and favorable benefits for our dispatchers," said Atlas Air Worldwide chief executive John Dietrich.

The dispatchers voted in favour of Teamster representation in 2008 and started negotiations with the carriers 2009.
