I wanted to update you on what your Executive Board has been doing behind the scenes! At the beginning of November, we traveled quickly to Miami and were sworn in as an Executive Board by our International Officers. What a whirlwind for our Executive Board now that we could meet and connect in person. We immediately got to work, training in our duties and responsibilities as an entire board and coming to a consensus regarding themes and tonalities.
With only one day of rest, Steven Miller, your Treasurer, jetted off to Washington, DC, for Treasurer training. International recommended that President attend to better understand the monumental work and legalities around running a multi-million-dollar organization. Whew! Forms, numbers, and QuickBooksâ€¦and MORE QuickBooks! You're in good hands with Steven! He, along with our Board, are rock stars!
With your excellent Grievance Committee, Rob Hill, your VP, has knocked out several individual and class-wise wins!
Have you met your Base Execs? They've already hit the ground running and have been answering your questions and concerns and following up with Inflight Management. Amber, Michael, Joel, Tiffany, Jonathan, and Tanji can't wait to hear from you all! We then appointed our Election Committee, our Base Shop Stewards, all the Committee Chairs, and the Committee members! These will be your advocates, assisted by your Base Executives regarding creating your Local base operations and our Union!
Your Shop Stewards will be training this month! Those who received previous training have already been taking meetings. In the next weeks, we will be adding an inflight crewmember feedback survey so that you can tell us how they are doing!
We are delighted to welcome each member appointed to represent our Union! Below are some highlights and all the TWU Local 579 Leadership Team. Be on the lookout for our first Union Quarterly Pulse Check near the beginning of February!
Myself, Steven Miller, our Treasurer, and Shane Rogers-Mauro, our Chair of the Health, Safety, & Security Committee, will be traveling to DC for our first TWU Coalition of Union Flight Attendants on Jan 3rd-5th! I can't wait to update you on our talks and networking!
