TWU Local 592 Ratifies Sun Country Airlines Contract in 80% Vote
Every Group Member Voted
Members of Transport Workers Union of America (TWU) Local 592 ratified their contract with Sun Country Airlines in an 80% vote. Every member in the Air Dispatch Group participated in voting. A tentative agreement was reached last month, and the new agreement will become effective immediately.
“This contract provides our Sun Country Dispatch Group members exactly what they asked our negotiating team to achieve: significant wage increases and other improvements throughout the contract,” TWU Air Division Systems Coordinator Gary Peterson said. “This vote once again had 100% turnout, with our Sun Country members overwhelmingly supporting the Tentative Agreement. Every member in this group participating in the vote speaks volumes to the fact that our members trusted their negotiating team, who fought uphill for the best contract possible and achieved an agreement they can be proud of.”
The Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO represents more than 150,000 members across the airline; railroad; transit, universities, utilities, and services sectors
