Thank you for staying active! Nobody loves paying dues, but with everyone pitching in, we airline workers have been able to do some remarkable things. Before the Pandemic hit, we were able to raise our wages to well over $30 an hour, and protect our health care and pensions. Now, we’ve been able to defend against the worst effects of COVID-19 so far. That’s because we are all pitching in and funding the work that protects our jobs.
Non-dues paying employees at other airlines, meanwhile, have been the victims of mass layoffs, pay and benefit cuts, and worse.
But protecting the advantages we have isn’t easy, and it isn’t cheap.
So, thanks again. To find out how you can remain current, just check in with your Local Lodge Secretary Treasurer. They can evaluate your specific case and take care of all the backend work for you. You may also need to have your rate changed. Once again, your local Secretary Treasurer can take care of that for you, too.
There are billionaires that want to take your paycheck and pension away right now. There are billion dollar reasons to take away your job during the COVID outbreak. But, if we stick together as a union, we can keep what we have, and survive much better than we could as separated employees just trying to hold on to our jobs.
