All,

Today we have a Presidents conference call scheduled from 1 to 3 with the International on the topic of AI.

AI will be a force to be reckoned with and cannot go ignored.

We need to be as prepared and cognizant of ALL the dangers that AI brings.

The above link was sent out by the International and with negotiations coming soon,

AI is being taken very seriously.

TWU Statement on Cancelled JetBlue-Spirit Merger

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

March 4, 2024

Contact: Pete Donohue,pdonohue@twu.org

The Transport Workers Union of America issued the following statement on the announcement that Jet Blue and Spirit airlines will no longer pursue a merger:

Our main concern throughout this process was protecting and advancing the livelihoods of our members. We achieved those goals. For our JetBlue Inflight Crewmembers, we secured 17% mid-contract raises, millions of dollars in potential bonus payments, the ability to open contract negotiations one year early, improved work rules, and enhanced grievance procedures. At Spirit Airlines, The TWU maintained representation for our Guest Service Agents, who would have lost their union contract and collective bargaining rights if the merger was approved. Maintaining their hard-fought TWU contract was critical to these members.
