IAM FILES MORE EVIDENCE REGARDING VOTER ELIGIBILITY LIST. EXPECTS NMB DECISION SOON.
Yesterday, the IAM filed further evidence to remove certain Republic employees, like supervisors, from the voter eligibility list. The IAM was forced to submit further evidence to the NMB due to Republic management’s outright mistruths submitted to the NMB. In fact, much of what Ford and Harrison’s high-priced attorneys submitted to the NMB regarding the specific jobs of certain workers on behalf of Republic management is in direct contradiction to Republic’s own policies and job descriptions.
It is vital to understand that these long procedural delays in attaining our right to vote in a representation election is a direct result of Republic’s strategy to exhaust us and hope we lose interest in forming a union with the IAM. Their strategy is flawed and we will not be deterred, and neither will the IAM.
IAM attorneys, experts in federal union organizing laws, have spared no resource to fight back against Republic and Ford and Harrison’s anti-workplace democracy tactics. We are confident that we will ultimately prevail and attain the right to vote. All we want is to have Republic mechanic and related workers to decide for ourselves with the interference from management.
The IAM has pressed the NMB to make a determination on our case as soon as possible. This has gone on long enough. However, we do not control the timeline in which the NMB makes determinations.
We must remain united in our determination to see this through, get the right to vote and form a union with the IAM. Thank you for your patience.
We will advise on further developments when we receive them.

IAM TO RESPOND TO REPUBLIC’S HIGHLY SUSPECT NMB SUBMISSION REGARDING VOTER ELIGIBILITY LIST
The IAM has requested and has been granted the ability to respond to Republic’s very misleading and outright untrue submission regarding what exactly the jobs are of the different groups of workers the company placed on the list of eligible voters.
The IAM felt the need to respond to the NMB to show the inaccuracies of Republic’s submission. In fact, in some instances, Republic’s submission contradicts the company’s own published policies.
The IAM will not allow such gross inaccuracies to go unanswered.
Companies are required to tell the truth in these types of processes before the federal government and it is clear that Republic has absolutely no regard for the truth. It’s very obvious at this point that Republic will do anything it can to keep us from forming a union.
We will advise when IAM attorneys have submitted the IAM’s response.
