PRESIDENT VICTOR J. GONZALEZ
ELECTED TO INTERNATIONAL EXECUTIVE BOARD
As our brothers and sisters in several states attempt to rebuild from the devastating hurricanes of the last several weeks, TWU is committed to supporting them. Working with local leaders on the ground in all affected areas, we are monitoring members’ needs and creating an action plan to ensure everyone gets the help they need. At this time, those wishing to help can continue to make donations to the TWU of America Hurricane Relief Fund, which will be distributed directly to union members in affected areas as needed.
Brothers and Sisters,
Due to the hurricane in Florida, the TWU/IAM Association and American Airlines have mutually decided to cancel contract negotiations next week. The safety of the Association’s members and representatives is of paramount importance and travel at this time is not advised. Negotiations are scheduled to resume on the following weeks: October 2nd in Washington DC and October 16th in New York City.
