To the Sisters, Brothers, and Siblings of TWU Local 579,
JetBlue seized the opportunity to acquire Spirit Airlines, an ultra low-cost carrier. History,
however, has repeatedly shown that acquisitions have not benefited front-line workers favorably,
resulting in disruptions of home, paycheck, and quality of life.
Dear Members of TWU Local 579,
Our TWU Local 579 Members and TWU International have taken the position that the hostile takeover of Spirit by JetBlue is not in the best interest of our Members, validated by our Feb 2023 survey results.
