AA STOP TWU Outsourcing & Union Busting! TWU SFO Workers & Supporters Rally & Speakout
American Airlines Transport Workers Union members ral
American Airlines Transport Workers Union members rallied and protested at SFO on September 18, 2017 against the outsourcing and and failure to win a contract. American Airlines which is making massive profits is seeking to outsource many of the union jobs outside the country and also eliminate union labor on jobs in the US.
They are outsourcing their security inspections and aircraft cleaning to third party contractors that pay their employees minimum wage. TWU workers sad that this results in a high employee turnover and lack of experience, which could compromise safety and security for the public and workers. Unonists also discussed the anti-labor Railroad Labor Act which impedes the legal right to strike and helps management beat down the union.
TWU locals 505, 591, 556 and 513 participated in the action and CWA-AFA, IAM workers as well as IBT UAL mechanics joined the line.
The TWU urged supporters of their struggle to email douglas.parker@AA.com and demand that he stop outsourcing jobs and threatening the health and safety of the public.
