On June 6, Envoy Air Pilot Simulator Instructors (PSI) voted unanimously for union representation by the TWU. Based in Dallas, PSI’s are highly skilled and train new pilots for Envoy Air.
Captain Rich Geeting, a member of the Organizing Committee, said that the best thing about joining the TWU is that he and his co-workers are “no longer employees subject to at-will employment.”
“We are delighted to take control of our future by joining our TWU brothers and sisters,” added Captain Mike Green, another Organizing Committee member.
TWU Organizing Director Steve Roberts said, “It’s been a pleasure to work with the Envoy Air PSIs. I want to thank TWU Local 548 and Local 548 President Chris Turner for their support with this organizing campaign.”
TWU Assistant Organizing Director Sean Doyle noted, “Another organizing victory for the national labor movement and another organizing win for the TWU – Welcome sisters and brothers to the Transport Workers Union of America!”
International Rep Jose Galarza agreed. “The TWU is happy to welcome another Envoy Air work group that wants fair living wages and control of their future. Welcome to America’s Fighting Democratic Union,” he said.
