One hundred fifty-five years ago today, the last enslaved Americans were finally given notice of their freedom on a day now commemorated as Juneteenth. However, that notice was not the end of the struggle, and the Transport Workers Union of America (TWU) realizes that the fight for true equality for African-American workers continues. The TWU honors the descendants of those Americans, and we recognize that we have a solemn duty to ensure your voices are heard in the workplace and beyond.
Thank you to everyone who was able to participate in the TWU/JetBlue IFC Town Hall Conference Call on June 19. Our IFCs asked a lot of pertinent questions, so if you’d like to hear the call, including the Q&As, please listen to it on the website.
If you had difficulty logging in to the call today, please make sure you have updated or added your contact information at the website. Please double-check your entries before you submit them. If you change your email address or phone number with a typo, you will no longer receive your union information.
We encourage all IFCs to continue submitting any updated information for the COVID-19 survey. Many of you who hadn’t flown are back on the aircraft, and your Union would like to track any changes to your work environment. Remember, you can update this survey as many times as you’d like. We will only use your most recent submission for information tracking.
As a final note, please remember that the new deadline for R&R bids is Monday, June 22 at 10:00 a.m., EDT. The deadline for the Opt-Out program remains June 30.
