President Harry Lombardo is proud to award this year’s Michael J. Quill Scholarships to several deserving students. Since 1970, TWU International has held an annual drawing to provide college tuition assistance to the deserving children of hard working TWU members.
Jon Bradford is president of Transport Workers (TWU) Local 226, representing some 800 bus drivers and social service workers in New Jersey. The local is about to grow by 100 members, thanks to a successful organizing campaign by bus driver Luis Del Toro and his co-workers who work for Trans-Ed, a company that provides bus service to school districts in northern New Jersey.
“We had a very strong committee,” says Bradford. “The committee is the rock.”
The National Mediation Board (NMB) today certified the TWU-IAM Association for the Fleet Service, Mechanic and Related and Stores classifications as the collective bargain-ing agent for all of the above classifications at American Airlines.
All three Associations were formed following the merger of US Airways and American Airlines. Both the Transport Workers Union (TWU) and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) agreed to jointly represent Fleet Service, Mechanic and Related, and Stores employees at the merged carrier instead of engaging in a long, costly and acrimonious representation dispute.
