Marking four years of unsuccessful contract negotiations, Members of TWU Local 577 along with approximately 20 other TWU Members and other Unions conducted informational picketing yesterday at the Shareholders Meeting at Allegiant Air Headquarters in Las Vegas.  Due to the high flying requirements, many Allegiant Flight Attendants and Pilots were unable to participate, however there was a great turnout to carry the message that it is time for Allegiant Management to negotiate in good faith to achieve the fair contract that our Members deserve.

It’s been four years since our TWU Local 577 began negotiations with our company - and four years is too long to wait for our first contract. Year after year we watch our company set record profits while our workgroup endures pay cuts, the threat of corporate replacement workers ready to take our jobs and a management negotiating team that continues to ignore the voice of its employees.

From Your Negotiating Team…
6/8/2015 1:59:54 PM by Admin 577
At the BLI Membership Meeting  last week, a question came up about who is representing our work group in Negotiations. The question was answered with accurate information, but unfortunately has been mischaracterized on social media by the very people who are trying to decertify our work group. While it is our goal to remain positive and not engage those who will say or do whatever it takes to take away our voice at work, it is necessary to provide our Members with accurate information.

Greetings 577 Members,
 
I'm writing today to share with you some upcoming changes to my status as a member of your Negotiating Team. Eight years ago, I began pursuing my career goal of becoming a Flight Attendant for Southwest Airlines. I interviewed in the summer of 2007 but was not selected for the position. Determined to become a Flight Attendant, however, I applied with Allegiant shortly thereafter and was hired in November of 2007. Recently I was presented with another opportunity to achieve my goal, and this time I was successful.
