Our JetBlue Pilots at the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) work side-by-side with us every day to get our passengers safely to their destinations. ALPA released the following statement in support of the Tentative Agreement that our IFCs will be voting on in just a few days:

The Association applauds the efforts of the JetBlue flight attendants and the Transport Workers Union (TWU) in reaching a Tentative Agreement on their first contract, particularly in light of the challenges posed to our industry by the ongoing public health crisis. We support the right for collective bargaining and wish the best to all flight attendants as they proceed through the ratification process.

We Are ALPA

When I became an activist in the organizing campaign for TWU as our union, I did so because I saw firsthand the crucial need to bridge the gap between humanity and us, as IFCs. When I ran for the Negotiating Team for MCO, I did it because I wanted to continue fighting for us frontline souls who are often overlooked in this ever-evolving industry that tends to be dismissive towards workgroups that have no collective bargaining agreements to stand on.

I just completed our most recent Tele-Town Hall with the rest of your TWU/JetBlue IFC Negotiating Team (NT), and one of the questions we received is one we have heard on every call:

“If we vote no for the Contract, can’t we just go back to the table and get more?”

The answer to that question is Read more

I wanted to thank all of you for the questions you have submitted to the Negotiating Team (NT) about the Tentative Agreement (TA). We are happy to help you make an informed decision about the ratification vote.

The NT has received several questions and a lot of feedback concerning the work rules affecting Reserves. The Reserve section of the TA contained substantial quality of life improvements, including the following: Read more

First of all, your entire Negotiating Team would like to send a sincere thank you to all of our IFCs who have served or are serving in our Military on this Veteran’s Day.

Your NT has just completed a Contract Ratification Tele-Town Hall. In addition to talks about guaranteeing the work rules that we currently have or highlighting the concessions the company wanted, we also received a lot of new questions about the positive gains achieved in this TA. Read more

We understand that there is a lot going on, and sometimes it’s better to have a clear, concise way to communicate the importance of the issues surrounding our Tentative Agreement (TA), so we produced a short video for you to detail our voting process and explain what’s really at stake.

We are prepared to assist you however we can in researching the “ins and outs” of the TA as thoroughly as you’d like. All of the following resources are available on the TWU/JetBlue IFCs website:

  • Contract Ratification Video
  • “What Do Our Votes Mean” flyer
  • “What We Won and What We Stopped” flyer
  • TA Questions and Answers
  • Contract Ratification Schedule

Thank you for your patience while we complete the final preparations for the launch of our Tentative Agreement (TA) education and ratification efforts for our historic TWU/JetBlue IFC Collective Bargaining Agreement. We are working nonstop to educate our IFCs about this TA. A Contract is the only way to protect JetBlue IFCs during these uncertain times, and we are working nonstop to ensure you can cast an informed vote about this agreement. You deserve to know the facts about the TA, the state of our industry, and the importance of making a responsible vote.

We will release the contract the afternoon of Monday, November 2. We have attached a calendar of educational events that start after the launch of the contract and last until voting closes. Read more

Against all odds, your TWU/JetBlue IFC Negotiating Team (NT) accomplished an unprecedented feat this week. We negotiated an initial contract during a pandemic that has created the most challenging economic time in aviation history. However, your NT strongly believes our JetBlue IFCs deserve to have the protection and power that a strong union coupled with a legally-enforceable contract will provide.

Without a contract, we have absolutely no legally-enforceable, contractual rights. We remain at-will employees, and JetBlue Leadership can change our wages, benefits, and work rules at any time. This is unjust, and it’s one of the main reasons we stood shoulder-to-shoulder to select the Transport Workers Union of America as our bargaining agent. Read more

The Transport Workers Union (TWU) has received numerous inquiries about recent Inflight Updates regarding procedures after COVID-19 tests and pay protection. Your Union has requested clarification from JetBlue management, and we will notify you when we have reached a resolution. Until then, please follow company procedures as published, and, if you have any questions, reach out to your Union for assistance.

We have also had many IFCs who suffered significant shortages on their most recent paychecks. When we notified management of the error, they told us that affected IFCs would have a check sent to them via U.S. Mail or the correction would be included in their next scheduled paycheck. While it is understandable to have occasional payroll discrepancies, they should be resolved quickly and efficiently, especially when many IFCs face additional challenges from the current pandemic. We have requested a solution from the Company, and we will update you on our progress. Read more
