We hope everyone had a great holiday season! Now that the new year is upon us, let’s redouble our efforts to gain union representation from the strongest airline union in the world, the IAM!
Meetings and outreach have been taking place all over the Republic system and we have teams of inside organizers in almost every location. Enthusiasm is running high and we hope that we can gain the right to vote in a representation election in the very near future. Federal rules mandate that at least 50 percent of the entire AMT class and craft sign an election authorization card (a-card). When we reach this threshold, we can file for our election. We are well past the halfway mark and we are progressing strongly.
If you have yet to sign your a-card, please do so today. If you need an a-card, please click here to request one, or you can call or text IAM Grand Lodge Representative and AMT, John Werkmeister, to get an a-card and ask any questions you may have regarding the IAM and union representation in general.
If you have already signed your a-card, thank you! Please encourage your co-workers to sign an a-card, as well. Remember, your a-card is valid for one year from the date it is signed and you have the right under federal law to sign an a-card and support unionizing your workplace.

Again, Happy New Year and LET’S GET THIS DONE!
