US regional carrier Great Lakes Aviation says its unionised pilots have ratified the recently-negotiated labour agreement between the company and the pilots.

The airline says 86% of the pilots, represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, voted to accept the new three-year contract while 14% voted to reject it.

The deal provides for an 11.7% pay rise over the life of the agreement and resolves all outstanding issues regarding benefits and working conditions.
