Your TWU Negotiating Team (NT) met in New York this week to develop responses on open issues and draft new proposals. During the three-day session, we discussed issues we believe are important work rules that affect our IFCs every day on the job. These issues included scheduling, bidding, and reserve. Your NT will reconvene next week to prepare for our next, four-day negotiating session in Washington, D.C. beginning on September 17th.

An involved and informed Membership is the key to a strong Union. Thank you for your support as we negotiate our historic first contract!

In Solidarity,
Your TWU / JetBlue Negotiating Team
