We are pleased to announce the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO (AFA) has endorsed the Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO (TWU) as the bargaining agent for JetBlue Inflight Crewmembers."Flight Attendants across the industry count you as family. We are inspired that you have gained the right to join us as Union Flight Attendants by voting for the Transport Workers Union. You worked hard for this opportunity and we encourage you to make the most of it. We urge you to cast your vote for TWU when you receive your ballot from the National Mediation Board in the coming week..."
Please take a moment to read the full text of the letter from AFA International President, Sara Nelson. We thank her and all of the Members of the AFA for their support!
Your voting instructions will discuss the options available to you. If you want Union representation in the workplace with a Union that has a proven history of representing flight attendants, we encourage you to vote yes for TWU. The TWU must receive over 50% of the votes cast in order to be certified as your bargaining representative.
Once TWU becomes your Union, your TWU Local will be comprised of JetBlue Inflight Crewmembers you and your co-workers elect to their positions. Your negotiating team will be comprised of people you and your co-workers elect to the team. Your negotiation priorities will be determined by surveying you and ALL JetBlue Inflight Crewmembers.
Once again, we offer our sincere thanks to the AFA for their endorsement, and we thank you for your patience through this process. We are moving into the home stretch! Congratulations on securing your election, and please reach out to us if you have any questions.
Your TWU Organizing Team
