Covid Relief bill passes Senate


The Covid Relief bill has passed the Senate with no changes in the airline, transit, or Amtrak funding. This is another major victory for the TWU and the AFL-CIO affiliates who helped push this legislation through the Senate; protecting union members from furlough through September. We anticipate that the amendments introduced in the Senate will pass in the House on Monday or Tuesday and will reach President Biden for his signature immediately thereafter.
