    Buck and Conehead777 didn’t get the cards needed either so I guess they’re Morons as well.

    AMFA, IAM, IBT, TWU Working Together since 2019.

    I need someone to make that banner for me.

    Holy crap you are starting to resemble wezzal boy now. No none of the organizers or anyone that signed a card is being wrapped into my moron comments. It's all the ones that still believe everything the TWU/IAM tells them and won't sign a card.
    If you thought for one moment I was calling all the organizers and the card signers morons then you have completely misread my postings. And BTW why are you the only one asking this? Everyone else knows exactly what I meant. C'mon dude think about it. Brett is one of your past organizers and avid AMFA supporter, are insinuating I am calling him a moron. Let's really rethink what you are implying here, C'mon man.

    The TWU organizing machine is in full swing.

    Under this new leadership, the Transport Workers Union has just won our 20th new worker organizing drive. We continue to grow and thrive across the entire transport sector. Since 2017, our membership has increased from 137,000 to 151,000.

    The TWU is by far the fastest growing union in the country. Our most recent victory came on June 6, when Envoy Air Pilot Simulator Instructors voted unanimously to join our union. We’ve secured organizing wins with the following workgroups:

    • JetBlue Airway InFlight Crewmembers
    • Spirit Airlines Customer Service Agents
    • PSA Airlines Dispatcher Coordinators
    • Kalitta Air Cargo Dispatchers
    • Envoy Air Pilot Ground Simulator Instructors
    • San Francisco Bike Share
    • Washington, DC Big Bus Workers
    • New York City Big Bus Workers
    • Miami Big Bus Workers
    • Las Vegas Big Bus
    • Chicago Big Bus
    • Los Angeles Big Bus
    • San Francisco Big Bus
    • Phoenix-Mesa-Temple Arizona Bike Share Workers
    • Cleveland, Ohio Bike Share Workers
    • SP Plus Transportation Ferry Bus Drivers
    • SP Plus Transportation Shuttle Bus Drivers
    • Bronx, NY Quality Schoolbus Company Drivers
    • NYC Mt. Sinai Hospital Network Shuttle Drivers
    • NYC MTA Bus White Collar Unit
    • NYC MTA Staff Analysts
    Thank you to our organizing teams! Thank you to the workers who stepped up to fight back against the bosses and take action to improve the economic security of your families.

    It is the goal of our leadership to demonstrate every day that we are America’s Fighting Democratic Union!

    In Solidarity,
    John Samuelsen
    International President

    Actually I would classify them more as a Transportation Union just like their name implies.

    A few months ago the TWU discontinued their representation of any Vegas Casino Workers with the recommendation that they should join the UAW.

    January 28, 2019

    Dear Local 721 member,

    The leadership of Local 721 has requested to be disaffiliated from the Transport Workers Union of America (TWU). Their request has been fulfilled. You are no longer represented by the TWU of America.

    Disaffiliation is not something that the TWU takes lightly, and this course of action is unprecedented. However, our International Executive Council recognizes that this is an extremely unique situation. Foremost in our decision is that the casino industry is not among the core sectors where the TWU organizes.

    With the disaffiliation having been granted, Local 721 members should strongly consider joining the United Auto Workers (UAW). Unlike the TWU, the casino industry in Las Vegas in directly in the core of the UAW’s focus and they will be a great fit for casino dealers. The TWU has invested several million dollars in support of Local 721 over the years and the UAW is committed to continuing the same type of support that only a national union is capable of.

    The UAW is also a hugely important affiliate of the national AFL-CIO. It’s important that Local 721 remain part of the House of Labor and not be an island unto itself. I encourage you to vote “Yes” for UAW representation.

    The TWU wishes you the best of luck in your future endeavors.

    Why? The TWU couldn't count their tips in calculating union dues?

    Yeah Swampy doesn't pull any punches. I will tell you guys this, sometimes like me, you think your union is your enemy. Then you wake up, and realize the company is out to pay you industry standard. We at SWA got all our profit sharing when we were at $28 ,and you guys were at $35. When we were at $44 as mechanics and $46 as a crew chief since 2012. You guys finally got to $51. So you will probably be past us in about 2 years. Will you rules be as good, who knows. Parker won't be there forever. Hopefully you get a Crandall and not a Carl Icahn. You guys deserve more than us, because all the type aircraft you fly. I lucked out, in what was a buyout from Morris Air. We had the perfect storm with the Max grounding and all our O/S aircraft. What could have been Pickett's charge at Gettysburg, turned into D Day for us. That's it.
