REPUBLIC MANAGEMENT AND ITS HIGH-PRICED ANTI-WORKER LAW FIRM FORD AND HARRISON CONTINUE TO SPREAD FALSE INFORMATION
In a recent email to employees, Republic management—no doubt directed by Ford and Harrison—states that if Republic mechanic and related employees vote in the IAM then Republic management cannot legally increase wages or benefits during the “life of the contract” or outside negotiations. This is a lie.
The IAM has entered into countless agreements with airlines to INCREASE wages and benefits and improve the working conditions of IAM members during the life of contracts. For example, American Airlines mechanic and related employees received a 25 percent wage increase DURING contract negotiations. The IAM and American Airlines agreed to provide immediate wage increases and continue negotiating other terms and conditions. The IAM has also entered into similar agreements at United Airlines.
There is no law that would prevent Republic Airways management from doing the same. All that is needed is for the union represented workforce and the company to agree to enter into such an agreement.
The larger issue, however, is why is Republic management not telling the truth?
Sadly, Republic management will say and do anything to keep mechanic and related employees from unionizing. At the same time they say they respect your right to unionize, they are spreading misinformation and outright lies and inflating the voter eligibility list. These actions are meant to keep you non-union, without a voice and without any power in the direction of your profession.
Don’t fall for it and tell management to respect your right to form a union.
