1. Q: Why did the TWU and IAM form a representation alliance?
A: The alliance was formed because both the TWU and the IAM concluded that joining forces as partners would offer members of both unions the most bargaining leverage and representation resources possible at the “new” American Airlines.
The TWU has taken great pride in supporting the United Way.
They held signs reading Stand Up and Fight Back while taking over the streets of New York and the lobbies of union busters and the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), telling each why they were there and that they would be back.
