TTD Statement on Rail Votes in Congress
11/30/22 - Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen
The rail industry’s unchecked corporate greed and bad faith bargaining efforts forced this contract fight to run the full course of the Railway Labor Act, landing at the doorstep of the Biden Administration and the U.S. Congress.

While the unions didn’t get everything their members wanted through the Presidential Emergency Board (PEB) process and subsequent negotiations, they secured some major wins for workers. Today, Congress has an opportunity to grant sick leave to rail workers, thus rectifying a major omission by the PEB.

AMFA-NK Negotiations Update #1
11/22/22 - AMFA
November 22, 2022 -- The Parties held a one-day bargaining session on November 17 in Dallas to commence bargaining toward a first collective bargaining agreement (CBA) for the Spirit group. Prior to this meeting, AMFA proposed a Letter of Agreement (LOA) by e-mail to Spirit Airlines that would have memorialized the status quo in compensation, 401(k) and work rules, created a just cause provision and grievance process, as well as a dues checkoff provision to easier facilitate the payment of dues to support collective bargaining. The purpose of the LOA was to cement current status quo and provide the Parties stability while they bargained toward a complete CBA. AMFA has proposed and agreed upon similar LOAs at other carriers when new groups have elected union representation. Unfortunately, Spirit rejected AMFA’s proposed LOA without offering a counterproposal. Simply put, Spirit said no to a short-term LOA that would have demonstrated its commitment to the hard-working AMTs while a CBA is negotiated.
