    Workers Memorial Day
    04/30/16 - Pennsylvania Federation BMWED-IBT
    April 29, 2016, Philadelphia, PA, Remarks of General Chairman Dodd, Workers Memorial Day. As we gather here on Workers’ Memorial Day, I bring you greetings of solidarity and friendship from our Union, the Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employees a division of the Teamsters Union. Workers’ Memorial Day is a day in which we remember and honor our friends, coworkers and loved ones who were prematurely taken from us while working to earn a living for themselves and their families. It is a day that we have set aside to recognize that, despite the best wishes of management, the best efforts of our members and the verbal support from the politicians and government regulators, too many of our members — of America’s work force — are killed and injured while working to support their families.

    National Director's April 2016 Update
    04/29/16 - AMFA
    April 29, 2016 -- On April 4, 2016, Alaska Airlines announced that it is acquiring Virgin America Airlines. The deal still needs regulatory and shareholder approval before proceeding. Upon gaining these approvals, the process of integrating the labor groups begins. As outlined previously, the Virgin America Technicians are nonunion and the Alaska employees are covered by their collective bargaining agreement, and the groups will continue to work separately until operations are integrated into a single entity, which isn’t expected to happen until the 1st quarter of 2018. Operational integration will not be completed until there is an integration of seniority lists and the negotiation of a single collective bargaining agreement covering the combined work groups.
