I am pleased to announce the Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO (TWU) has filed for a representational election with the National Mediation Board (NMB) on behalf of the JetBlue Airways Inflight Crewmembers. You are one step closer to your goal of uniting and establishing your voice in your workplace and protecting and advancing your livelihoods.

This historic moment was made possible by the dedication of your co-workers who are serving as your committed team of in-house, rank and file activists. Through their efforts and your overwhelming support, you and your team have signed a sufficient number of cards needed to file for an election, so that the Inflight Crewmembers can begin to take control of their collective future. Your organizing team has done an exceptional job communicating with your workgroup and reaching out to the entire community of JetBlue Inflight Crewmembers. I congratulate them on their success.

Your next step, in order to establish a level playing field and secure a seat at the bargaining table to negotiate your first contract, is to vote “Yes!” for representation by the TWU. You will be hearing from us as we move through the process of certifying an election with the NMB. The activists throughout the system, who have gotten your workgroup to this point, will also be reaching out to you to confirm you received your voting instructions from the NMB. In preparation for the upcoming election, please take the time to update the mailing address you have on file with JetBlue.

On behalf of the leadership team of the TWU, I thank you for your continued commitment. Thank you for choosing to join our TWU family. Unity with each other is the driving force for an election victory. And with a unified work group, you will succeed in securing your first contract after the election.

United! Invincible!
