TWU/JetBlue IFC News and Updates
It is hard to believe that your new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) passed only a few short days ago. With the new CBA there are many changes that have already taken place and many more that will be taking place in the future. While most articles of our new CBA are effective immediately, or are defined by the contract itself, some do require changes in technology and time for implementation. Your Union and JetBlue Leadership are currently in discussions over a final implementation agreement that will provide a timeline for IFCs on any aspects of the CBA that require a prospective implementation date. Just like we did throughout negotiations, we will keep you updated with details of the implementation agreement, which we expect to be finalized next week. This journey to achieve the CBA has taken time to achieve, and a final implementation agreement is the last piece in our journey. Read more
Congratulations to JetBlue Inflight Crewmembers on securing our first Contract as members of the Transport Workers Union (TWU)! Our workgroup voted to ratify TA2 by a margin of 65.58% to 34.42%, with a participation rate of 85%! Thanks again to all who voted!
So, what’s next for our workgroup? Most provisions of our new Contract will go into effect immediately—with the end of voting yesterday, we are now officially covered by the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). There are many technical changes to be made, so full application of TA2 into our work can take additional time. The Union and Company are currently in discussion to finalize an implementation schedule. However, if you see the contract being violated, you can reach out to TWU for assistance. Read more
On behalf of TWU, I want to thank the IFCs on the TWU/JetBlue IFC Negotiating Team and TAP Committee for their tireless efforts in negotiating this strong, foundational Contract; none of this would have been possible without their hard work and dedication.
This Union is proud of the way IFCs rallied together over the past several years to bring this historic accomplishment to fruition. This collective bargaining agreement will bring positive changes that will impact your everyday life for years to come, including: over 10% payscale raises over the life of the Contract, creating a grievance procedure, keeping the Company accountable to our new contractual work rules, and so much more.
