TWU Envoy Air Dispatch Group Ratifies Contract: 89% Voted ‘Yes’
On October 6, 2019 the Envoy Air Dispatch Group represented by Transport Workers Union of America (TWU) was ratified with 89% of our members voting in favor of the new six-year agreement.
TWU Air Division Director Mike Mayes stated, “This contract puts our Envoy Dispatch Group back amongst the leaders in the regional industry when it comes to total compensation and benefits, with our most senior members recouping more than what was lost through bankruptcy. This contract solidifies that the sacrifices our members made in bankruptcy were not in vain. While reach this agreement was difficult, it proves the TWU will fight for the pay and benefits our members rightfully deserve.”
The Transport Workers Union of America (AFL-CIO) represents more than 150,000 workers across the airline, railroad, transit, universities, utilities and services sectors.
