CSM’s/Allocator Update

Brothers & Sisters,

The following communication is to update you on CSM’s/Allocator replacing our Crew Chief positions. Also please be advised that an International Grievance will be filed pertaining to the company violating our members recall rights system wide during the recent RIF. International Official grievances were also filed due to numerous JCBA Article 6 violations by the company. On the topic of Representation/Grievance Committees and moving forward under the new JCBA’s, the implementation information will be communicated shortly throughout the system. At TWU Local 501, our plan and vision on how we will establish a formidable Shop Steward Team will be rolled out soon. While there should be no one who cannot see that we are in difficult times, if we Stand As One we will overcome ALL challenges and obstacles in our way!


In Solidarity,
Victor J. Gonzalez
President, TWU Local 501
International Executive Board
