JetBlue Workers Vote for Union Future


New member of TWU: Jet Blue
InFlight Crewmembers.

Workers are standing up for a better deal at JetBlue. It’s one of the few companies in the airline industry that has operated in the past as a non-union carrier.

The future will be different. In April, flight attendants at the New York-based airline overwhelmingly voted for representation by the Transport Workers Union (TWU). In May, the Air Line Pilots Association announced a tentative agreement on a first contract with the airline.

We Are Stronger With Our Allies

07/23/2018 - (This article first appeared in the July-August 2018 issue of the American Postal Worker magazine) 

By By Secretary-Treasurer Liz Powell 

The American Postal Workers Union (APWU) has begun bargaining with the United States Postal Service (USPS) for a new contract, and members know this is our bread and butter. This is one of the primary reasons why we signed up to join our union. We are focused on getting the best deal possible for our members and their families while securing the future of the postal service.

Because our members have been united, in the past we’ve been successful. If we stay united, with a broad vision of social justice, I believe we will be successful now and into the future.

White House Plan to Privatize the Postal Service

06/21/2018 - The White House proposal on restructuring the federal government released today, “Delivering Government Solutions in the 21st Century,” delivered nothing but misinformation and, if implemented, would end regular mail and package services at an affordable cost to 157 million addresses every day. Furthermore, the White House plan is an attack on many federal agencies and the public services they provide.

Eliminating the universal service obligation, as the plan suggests, would hurt business and individuals alike, and would be a dagger aimed at the heart of rural America and undermine e-commerce.

We are all aware of the surge of workers mobilizing against sexual harassment, and their stories and experiences have been both sad and inspiring. The APWU has joined with other national unions to come up with ways the labor movement can work to create the conditions at work that will put an end to harassment and hostile work environments.
