shut down of the airline. On Thursday Air Line
Pilots Association released a statement.
Media Statement by Capt. Brian Roseen,
Chairman of the Sun Country Master Executive
Council, Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l.
“The Sun Country Master Executive Council (SCA
MEC) of the Air Line Pilots Association,
International, the collective bargaining
representative of SCA pilots, has received media
inquiries related to reports about a
communication from SCA management threatening a
wind down of Sun Country Airlines.
“Yesterday, the SCA MEC received a letter from
Mr. Marty Davis, Chairman and owner of Sun
Country. Mr. Davis' letter asserts that after
five years of negotiations, the first
comprehensive economic proposal presented by the

disclosure to our members, we forwarded Mr.
Davis’ communication to the pilot group last
