The Federal government has implemented two COVID-19 vaccine mandates for businesses. American Airlines will follow the federal mandate, which requires employees of American mainline, Piedmont, and Envoy to be vaccinated.
During a virtual Congressional Roundtable discussion on October 7, CWA Local 3645 President Donielle Prophete (CLT) and CWA Local 3146 President James McKnight (MIA) joined members of other airport workers’ unions to demand baseline federal wage and benefit standards be mandated for any airport that receives federal funding.
As travel opens up after the lockdowns and quarantines of 2020, reports from every region of the country about incidents of unruly and sometimes violent behavior by passengers are on the rise. CWA is working with other unions, lawmakers, the FAA, DOT, and airline management to find solutions to this urgent issue.
The results of our CWA-Envoy bargaining survey are in and our first meeting with the company is April 17-19. We need strong and visible support from our members at every station, and are pleased to see everyone joining in the "green wave" and rallying for fair wages.
Piedmont members in Local 13301 are getting motivated to lead, participating in steward training, and mobilizing for political action as never before. We need every single member to become involved with positive thoughts and actions.
As of January 1, 2019, new protections from assault went into effect for passenger service agents across the country. Since January, we have been meeting with American Airlines to determine exactly how we will implement tools and policies to make the assault protections a reality at all our airports.
On January 4-7, 2019, CWA Local 3645 hosted over 50 shop stewards from 22 stations in District 3 at its third annual Steward Leadership Conference in Charlotte, NC. The training was designed to help stewards clearly understand the details of the new Piedmont contract.
Serious safety concerns, including rushed inspections, high stress, and dangerous time pressures are among the issues cited in a new report on conditions for Envoy passenger service agents.
Piedmont passenger service agents ratified a new contract last November. The road to an agreement wasn’t easy, but we can be proud of the solidarity we built among agents throughout the process. I’d like to share some of our lessons learned along the way.
We feel the momentum is really on our side right now at Envoy, and we’re looking forward to fresh bargaining in January to make sure that we put an end to poverty wages for all our agents
On October 3, 2018, the Senate overwhelmingly passed a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Reauthorization bill that included critical protections from assault for passenger service agents. The bill also included a long-needed increase in the minimum rest period for flight attendants.
