In November, TWU Local 591 member and DCA Station Chairman Brian McMahon lost his life to cancer. While Brian may not have been known by a large number of members outside of Washington D.C., he was a longtime union representative working for TWU members employed by American Airlines; including participation in past negotiations.
Unfortunately, about a year ago, Brian was diagnosed with cancer, which ultimately caused him to step away from working at American. But his dedication as a union member and representative never wavered and he listened into the Local 591 weekly call until his passing.
“It is with deep respect and admiration we at the Air Division say goodbye to Brian, a man who was proud of his family, his work, and his union,” said TWU Air Division Systems Coordinator and International Vice President Gary Peterson. “We’ll miss you, brother.”
