      Newest TWU Members Are Kalitta Air Dispatchers: 85% Voted ‘Yes’ 

      The newest members of the TWU family are Kalitta Air Dispatchers. On March 5, the vote count was announced at the National Mediation Board in Washington, DC: 85% voted “Yes” for TWU representation. “The TWU continues our organizing success,” said President Samuelsen. “Congratulations to these workers who have just added a layer of security to their livelihoods!”

      John Cash is a Flight Dispatcher for Kalitta Air and lives just outside of Detroit. He said that Kalitta Air has grown from “a mom & pop business to a fairly large cargo operation quite quickly” and the relationship between the employer and employee has done the opposite.

      “Quality of life is a big part of it. The pay scale system is something we have never had,” Cash explained. “The company has been around in one form or another for 20-plus years and there are people there the entire time who have never moved up. “We don’t want to be employed at-will,” he continued.

      “We love that we are going to have union representation at the bargaining table now. We just want our lives to be better - not just for ourselves – for everybody.”

      TWU Organizing Director Steve Roberts, who spearheaded the campaign with TWU Assistant Organizing Director Sean Doyle, said that the negotiating team will work for defined working conditions, hours, benefits and job security.

      “I’m incredibly happy and humbled to welcome more members to our TWU family,” Roberts said. “I look forward to the next steps of negotiating a fair contract.”

      “It’s no secret there is strength in numbers,” Doyle said. “Now, not only do Dispatchers for Kalitta Air have the security of union representation, but also the TWU has even more clout so we can fight for our members even harder.”

      TWU Believes UPS Aircraft Dispatcher Contract Negotiations Have Reached an Impasse

      After 46 months of bargaining, the TWU believes contract negotiations between our Aircraft Dispatchers and United Parcel Service (UPS) have come to an impasse. We have been engaged in mediation since Aug. 26, 2016. On Jan. 9, we sent a request to the National Mediation Board (NMB) to be released from mediation.

      The TWU and UPS could not reach an agreement because UPS has not offered enough in wages and their pension proposal falls significantly short when compared to other unionized UPS airside workgroups. TWU Dispatchers perform many duties that improve shareholder value, including helping create fuel savings, improving on-time performance and providing flight crew safety. They deserve a pension inline with other UPS airside workgroups.

      “It seems like UPS is committed to lowballing and undercutting the value that TWU Aircraft Dispatchers bring to improving the company’s bottom line,” said International Vice President and Air Division Systems Coordinator Gary Peterson. “TWU members simply will not continue to sacrifice the fruits of their labor while management and shareholders alone reap the rewards of their efforts. The TWU will not rest until our Air Dispatchers have a contract that fairly compensates them for all of their hard work.”

      Tell Your Senator : Support the Paycheck Fairness Act

      Women overall make 80 cents for every dollar paid to men, and the wage gap is even worse for women of color: African American women make 61 cents and Latinas make 53 cents for every dollar white, non-Hispanic men make. Asian American women make 85 cents to the dollar; they are more likely to have advanced degrees than white men but are still paid less.

      The Paycheck Fairness Act would further close the legal loopholes standing in the way of wage equality for women and prohibit retaliation against workers asking about their employers’ wage practices.

      Contact your U.S. Senator and urge them to support H.R. 7, the Paycheck Fairness Act.
