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!
