Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings has concluded a new five-year collective bargaining agreement with the pilots and flight engineers of Atlas Air and Polar Air Cargo.

Effective from September 2011, the agreement will merge the Atlas and Polar crews into a single collective bargaining unit with an integrated seniority list, said Atlas Air.

Pilots from both carriers will work from a single contract under the new agreement and will be able to operate aircraft from both brands interchangeably, it added.
