Presidents Message

Brothers & Sisters,

On behalf of our TWU Local 501 Administration, I would like to give a Special thanks to the entire membership for your continued support and confidence in us as your Leadership.

Our Administration is truly humbled and honored at the Historic way we were ALL Elected, Uncontested in our 2017 Elections. As we move forward into our second term in office, your Executive Board will be as Committed and Dedicated as ever, to working as hard as possible for our membership.

We will also continue to strive at producing Positive Changes at our local, and be an Administration that is Visible, Informative and Available to our members. Our Veterans, Working Woman, Benefits Committee, Safety Teams and All of our Local 501 representatives will receive the support needed to provide our members with a robust representation.

At the NY State Conferences and New York Central Labor Council, local 501 will be active participants. Our number one priority will be to protect our Treasury, while establishing Unity with our members by providing hats, T-Shirts and picnics.

When our Industry Leading Joint Collective Bargaining Agreements are finally accomplished, the challenges and obstacles that they will bring, will be met by us with full force. Protecting our jobs, our work and fighting for upgrades and better FT/PT ratios at our stations will also be an ongoing battle.

Moving forward with an update on Two of our very important Presidential 29'd Grievances, the grievance pertaining to the CS policy at SJU has been resolved as our SJU Brothers and Sister are now provided CS privileges same as the CS policy at JFK/LGA. As for the grievance on Re-staffing Philadelphia and Newark stations back to TWU Local 501, we are now waiting for the International to set up a meeting for us with the 1AM Leadership in an effort to try and establish an agreement that can expeditiously return our Brothers and Sisters back to their home stations.

"ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT AND ALWAYS BE A PROUD TWU MEMBER"

Fraternally,

Victor J. Gonzalez
President, TWU Local 501
