Over two years ago, JetBlue IFCs voted to organize under the banner of the Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO (TWU). There is no way we could have forecast the drastic changes we have seen in our industry due to this global pandemic, but now, more than ever, it is clear that the best way for our JetBlue IFCs to protect themselves and secure a voice in the workplace is with a ratified union contract.
Your TWU/JetBlue IFC Negotiating Team (NT) has been working diligently to negotiate a historic first contract for JetBlue IFCs. But we are at the point where we need your help to mobilize our IFCs and support the NT.
It’s now time to enlist and deploy the Contract Action Team (CAT). In addition to mobilization and support, the CAT will help us communicate with your coworkers so we can reach a fair contract that will give our IFCs the protection and voice in the workplace they deserve. This contract will provide the foundation for your future Local.
If you would like to join the CAT, please visit the website and let us know. If you have previously volunteered, please register again to ensure we have your mailing address on file, since we’ll be sending mobilization materials directly to you. We need volunteers from every seniority level and every base. We will hold online trainings at varying times to give everyone an opportunity to attend.
Please stay safe at home and at work. Together we will make it through this, and together we will reach a fair, first contract.
