As the situation develops, TWU will be posting the most current and useful safety and health informational resources on this page, in addition to hand-distributing them in the field and via individual locals' unique means of communications with members. Brothers and sisters, please bookmark this page and check back for updates.
On Sunday, hundreds upon hundreds of our brothers and sisters, members of Local 234 working for SEPTA — Philadelphia's public transit system — crowded into a Columbus Boulevard meeting hall, unanimously authorizing Local President Willie Brown to take the union out on strike and throwing their full support behind the Local's leadership in this contentious and protracted contract fight.
On Wednesday, TWU won a National Mediation Board representation authorization election for the 135 Flight Dispatchers at ExpressJet Airlines, the Atlanta-based regional subsidiary of Delta Airlines. This win marks a definitive end to a bid by PAFCA, the Professional Airline Flight Control Association, for representation of these workers — who have, for three years, been members of TWU Local 542.
