03/03/2017 Letter to Membership

Brothers and Sisters,

After a 97% NO VOTE on the Tentative Agreement on September 9th, 2016 TWU and Envoy Airlines entered into an Arbitration Hearing the first week of October.

Both parties TWU and Envoy Airlines appeared, represented by counsel and presented testimony and documentary evidence to the Arbitration Board.

Closing briefs from both parties were submitted on December 23, 2016 and after a long wait, the Arbitration Board awarded their decision of the Amendment Round Process March 21, 2017.

We all have been informed of their decision and feel the award was less than expected.

We shall be meeting with you the member's at our quarterly station meeting. I encourage each member to attend their station meeting, so we can discuss the award and answer any questions you may have.

The meeting dates are as follows:

April 10th – LAX
April 12th – DFW
April 14th – XNA
April 18th – SGF
April 19th – LIT

Check your Local Union Board for the meeting time's at your location.

Regards,
Tim Jackson
President Local 576
