    JAVITS DECISION

    The TWU-IAM Association today announced that Neutral Joshua Javits issued his final integrated seniority lists for the Mechanic and Related, Fleet Service and Stores work groups at American Airlines.

    The final lists are the completion of an investigation Neutral Javits conducted regarding protests of the initial seniority lists, issued on December 27, 2016. The final integrated seniority lists show all seniority dates amended as a result of that protest process.

    Neutral Javits considered over 1,600 protests from approximately 1,700 employees. Each protester will receive a letter from Neutral Javits explaining the determination of his or her protest.

    These seniority lists will become effective upon ratification of the Joint Collective Bargaining Agreements. View all final integrated seniority lists, Neutral Javits’ memo and the updated former TWA Seniority by Station Title/Group Matrix below.

  • The TWU Endorses the Safe Aircraft Maintenance Standards Act – Ensures the Safety of Aviation Workers and the Flying Public, Prevents Offshoring
    Updated On: Nov 22, 2019

     

        

    The TWU Endorses the Safe Aircraft Maintenance Standards Act

    Ensures the Safety of Aviation Workers and the Flying Public, Prevents Offshoring

    Washington, DC – Today, the Transport Workers Union of America (TWU) strongly endorsed new legislation that raises the level of safety and security for aircraft maintenance. Introduced in the House of Representatives by Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman Peter DeFazio (D-OR), Representative John Katko (R-NY), and Representative John Garamendi (D-CA) the Safe Aircraft Maintenance Standards Act raises safety standards for U.S.-flagged aircraft maintained abroad to bring them in line with domestically maintained aircraft. This will not only better ensure the safety and security of frontline aviation workers and the flying public, but also deter offshoring of aircraft maintenance.

    “The TWU is proud to support the Safe Aircraft Maintenance Standards Act and we applaud Chairman DeFazio, Representative Garamendi, and Representative Katko’s commitment to air safety,” said TWU International President John Samuelsen. “The legislation will protect American jobs and American air travelers from a race to bottom on safety and labor standards in the airline industry.”

    More than 900 aircraft maintenance and repair stations have been certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) outside of the United States. The number of these facilities has grown by more than 30 percent in the past four years. These foreign repair stations are located all around the globe including China (78 facilities), Singapore (54), Brazil (22), Thailand (6), Costa Rica (3), and El Salvador (2).

    The legislation would address five regulatory gaps that allow a lower safety standard for aircraft maintenance:

    • Drug and alcohol testing for safety sensitive personnel
    • Background checks for workers at maintenance facilities
    • Security threat assessments for these facilities
    • Unannounced inspections for maintenance operations
    • Minimum qualifications for aircraft mechanics
       

    While Congress has directed the FAA twice before to address several of these gaps, the Administration has failed to take even cursory action on these mandates.

    This un-level playing field for safety regulations is also costing American jobs. More than 8,200 aircraft maintenance jobs left the country in recent years.

    “The job loss is caused by regulatory loopholes that let airlines cut costs by diminishing safety. We often hear that airlines ‘do not compete on safety.’ Congress and the Administration have to live up to this ideal by immediately closing all the loopholes that encourage moving maintenance work outside of the country,” Samuelsen said.

    “By allowing these safety gaps to persist, the FAA is incentivizing offshoring U.S. jobs onto safety standards well-below the minimum at home. This practice should be unacceptable of any safety regulatory agency. We hope Congress will pass this legislation immediately to make it clear to the FAA that the American people expect them to maintain the safety of our airspace regardless of where aircraft are repaired,” Samuelsen concluded.
