Our union

The Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO (TWU) is dedicated to bettering the lives of working families. We work to safeguard, protect and improve working conditions and living standards of all workers and demand respect, dignity and equality for all. Our members make airplanes fly, subways run, buses drive, and casinos shine. We are 130,000 transit workers, and we move America.

The TWU has four main divisions: Railroad, Gaming, Airline, Transit. The Union has 114 autonomous locals representing over 200,000 members and retirees in 22 states around the country. Harry Lombardo is the current President of the TWU.
