DHL pilots strike for stalled contracts

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - Several South Florida cargo pilots are participating in a strike.

DHL pilots gathered outside of a Kalitta Air bargaining meeting in Fort Lauderdale to voice their anger.

They are upset by stalled contract negotiations and the protesters said they’re ready to walk off the job.

“We’re out here doing the informational picketing to let DHL know that as a worldwide company, they need to treat the North American Network and the pilots that fly in the North American Network fairly,” said one protester.

More than 2,000 pilots voted on the issue and 99 percent were in support of striking if necessary.
