Dear TWU Member,
The Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO has been fiercely fighting to end offshoring aircraft repair and overhaul.
Offshoring affects all TWU members. Returning these solid, union jobs back to the U.S. will positively impact working communities across America and elevate the level of safety in skies for our families.
Click here to support the Global Aircraft Maintenance Standards Act, (H.R. 7321, formerly known as the Safe Aircraft Maintenance Standards Act), which will close the loopholes that incentivize all airlines to move airline maintenance out of the country and onto less safe standards. When this bill becomes law, it will return tens of thousands of good, union jobs to the U.S.
The bipartisan bill scheduled to be voted on by members of Congress on Wednesday, September 28. If passed, it will go onto the Senate. Click here to ask your local Senator for support.
The TWU is the only airline mechanics’ union who has successfully rolled back outsourcing AND returned jobs to America. Our 2020 American Airlines contract includes provisions that bring back aircraft maintenance jobs that were outsourced overseas back to U.S. soil.
This bill will be a huge victory for the TWU, for the labor movement, and for all air travelers. It will make our skies safer for the flying public and ensure that airline mechanics have a level playing field against foreign competition.
We are closer than ever to making it a reality! Please click here to support the H.R. 7321.
