Allegiant Dispatchers Reject Union Representation
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 24, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allegiant (Nasdaq:ALGT) has received notification from the National Mediation Board (NMB) that the Transport Workers Union (TWU) failed to obtain the support of a majority of employees voting in the dispatcher election and thus, Allegiant's dispatchers will remain non-union. This the first time Allegiant dispatchers have voted on union representation.
"We are pleased our dispatchers have chosen to maintain a direct relationship with company management rather than through a third-party representative," Maurice J. Gallagher, Jr., Allegiant CEO and Chairman, said. "Because of Allegiant's unique business model, we believe a direct relationship is always in our employees' and the company's best interest, and look forward to continuing to work directly with our dispatchers on matters of concern to them."
