On July 29, the TWU negotiating committee for Local 548 Ground School Instructors at Envoy Air reached a four-year tentative agreement with the company. Ground School Instructors provide classroom training to Envoy Air pilots.
Highlights include substantial pay increases, reduced step pay scale, and improved hours of service language. Full contract details and scheduled briefings will be announced to local members shortly.
“A solid union contract is the only true pathway to economic security – something every worker should enjoy,” said TWU International President John Samuelsen. “I’m proud of the negotiating team for securing such a solid agreement and I hope local members agree and are able to ratify it.”
“Our negotiation team evaluated this agreement and realized the benefits our members will experience by the changes to such a strong contract,” said TWU Air Division Director and International Vice President Gary Peterson. “I have faith that the membership will ratify and soon enjoy the contracts vast improvements.”
