I am pleased to announce the Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO (TWU) has filed for a representational election with the National Mediation Board (NMB) on behalf of the Spirit Airlines Customer Service Agents. You are one step closer to your goal of uniting and establishing your voice in your workplace and protecting and advancing your livelihoods.
This moment was made possible by the dedication of your co-workers who are serving as your committed, in-house team of rank and file activists. Through their efforts and your support, you and your team collected more than the required number of signed cards needed to file for an election. Your workgroup has a chance to take control of their collective future, and I congratulate all of you on your success.
In order to establish a level playing field and secure a seat at the bargaining table to negotiate your first contract, your next step is to “Vote Yes! for TWU”. You will be hearing from us as we move through the process of certifying an election with the NMB. In preparation for the upcoming election, please take the time to update the mailing address you have on file with Spirit.
On behalf of the leadership team of the TWU, I thank you for your continued commitment. Thank you for choosing to join our TWU family. Unity with each other is the driving force for an election victory. And with a unified work group, you will succeed in securing your first contract after the election.
Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO
