Air Transport Services Group, Inc. on Wednesday won a preliminary injunction that stops strikes and other service interruptions of ATSG’s cargo airline subsidiary ABX Air, Inc., ATSG officials said in a prepared statement.

U.S. District Court Judge Timothy S. Black on Nov. 23 issued a temporary restraining order against the pilots after he determined that disagreements between ABX Air and its pilots over work scheduling issues constitute a “minor dispute” and must be resolved under terms of the labor agreement between ABX Air and the union.

The preliminary injunction effectively extends that order, pending an as-yet unscheduled adjudication on a permanent injunction, ATSG officials said.
