USPS to Pay $6.5M in Back Wages to Pilots

Share this article:
More than $6.5 million in back wages will be paid to almost 900 pilots, co-pilots and flight engineers following a U.S. Labor Department agreement with the U.S. Postal Service that was announced yesterday.


The employees worked on USPS contracts and subcontracts to transport mail by air from January 1996 to August 2001. Wages paid were subject to requirements of the Service Contract Act.


The USPS contractors and subcontractors affected by this settlement are Ryan International Airlines, Express One International Inc. and Evergreen International Airlines Inc. Under the agreement, the postal service will contact and make back-wage payments to the employees who worked on the contracts and subcontracts.


The agreement emerged from a 10-year dispute over the calculation of wages for flight crew employees.
