Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Your negotiating committee and the company had our first virtual negotiations meeting on Thursday, March 18th and19th, 2021. Introductions and negotiations ground rules were established by both parties.

Your committee passed Articles 12- Probationary Period, 15 – Furlough/Recall, 19 – General, 23 – Meal Periods, 24 – Part-time Employees, 26 – No Strike-No Lockout, 27 – Saving Clause and 28 – Health and Safety.

We were able to reach agreements in principle on Articles 12 – Probationary Period, 26 – No Strike-No Lockout and 27 – Saving Clause.

The company did not have any article proposals for us during this session. We hope to receive proposals from the company at our next negotiations session scheduled for April 27th – 29th, 2021.

Our committee will meet internally on April 7th – 9th to continue drafting proposals to get the contract you rightfully deserve.

UNITED-INVINCIBLE.

02/04/2021 Negotiations Update

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Your negotiating committee has been preparing for contract negotiations since last year. Our first scheduled meetings with the company were scheduled for the week of January 18th.

During one of our last preparation meetings, a discussion took place about the financial impact this pandemic is putting on the airline industry.

After much discussion we decided that we would attempt to get the current contract extended with no other changes other than pay increases.

A proposal for a 24-month extension with pay rate increases was given to the company.

The company responded with a counter proposal that did not meet our expectations.

We have decided to continue with the process and begin Section 6 contract negotiations.

As soon as we schedule future meeting dates, we will update you.

Thank you for your support.

12/13/2020 Letter to Membership

YOUR OPINION HAS BEEN HEARD LOUD & CLEAR!!!

TWU Local 576 Executive Board has reviewed the results of the Envoy AMT & Related Member survey and we cannot disagree with you: ENVOY has a decision to be made during contract negotiations!

You all clearly remember 2012 Chapter 11 bankruptcy 8-year contract with 7 million dollars in concessions and it still has everyone feeling disrespected by ENVOY MANAGEMENT! The Envoy mgmt team had the opportunity to make it right with each of you going into the Amendment Round at year 4 of this contract. Instead, they chose to disrespect you again, offering you 2% a year raise after AAG gave their mechanics & related a 20% pay raise and they did not even have an agreement yet. A 97% NO VOTE SPOKE LOUD AND CLEAR!!

Keep on reading!

IT’S TIME WE START PREPARING

The TWU International and Local leadership are committed to working with you to win a good contract, but it will take a fight.

We all need to participate and work together in order to be successful. That is why we want to hear your priorities and positions. We are asking every Envoy Member to take a Survey! Please visit, bit.ly/envoysurvey2020. Giving us five minutes of your time will guide your negotiating team!

Deadline for survey responses is Tuesday, October 20!
