NetJets Pilots Overwhelmingly Approve New Labor Agreement

(BRK.A), (BRK.B)

In a significant development for the private aviation industry, pilots belonging to the NetJets Association of Shared Aircraft Pilots (NJASAP) have voted to ratify a tentative labor agreement with Berkshire Hathaway’s NetJets. The vote, with an overwhelming majority of 78.31% in favor, signifies a positive step forward in the relationship between the pilots and the company after several years of acrimony.

The newly ratified labor agreement brings about substantial changes, chief among them being a notable increase in compensation for NetJets’ pilots. With a resounding vote of confidence, pilots have agreed to a remarkable 52.5% rise in compensation until the agreement’s culmination in 2029.

NetJets, with roughly 3,100 pilots, is the leader in fractional (shared) ownership with over double the number of flight hours as its nearest competitor, Flexjet.
