We’ve been notified that the National Mediation Board (NMB) has certified the cards you and your workgroup have gathered to authorize a representation election for the Inflight Crewmembers of JetBlue. This is huge moment for you and your colleagues, and we’d like to congratulate you on getting one step closer to joining us as members of the Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO (TWU).
The dates for your election have been set. The voting period will begin on March 19, 2018 at 12:01 a.m., ET and will run until April 17, 2018 at 2:00 p.m., ET. We will announce the results shortly after voting concludes. The election will be conducted by telephone and Internet. Both methods will be secure and secret - no one will know how you vote. Your voting instructions, including your ballot access code, will be mailed by the NMB on March 19, 2018. This will be sent to the address you have on file with JetBlue.
Please keep in mind - it is not time to relax! The company has a team of union-busters who are paid by JetBlue to try and silence the voices of workers (like you) who want and deserve union representation. These union-busters are hired to create a false narrative and engage in negative attacks and scare-mongering. Please, don't fall for these tactics. In fact, take a moment to ask your company how much they are spending to silence your voice.
Rest assured, the TWU leadership will work with your Inflight Crewmember organizing committee as we step up our "Get Out the Vote" campaign. We will provide you with the necessary support as you take your next steps to securing your future. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask . We look forward to victory at JetBlue and you becoming members of the TWU!
TWU International President
