TTD Release – New NMB Rule Undermines Aviation and Rail Workers

Larry Willis, President of the Transportation Trades Department, AFL-CIO (TTD), of which TCU is a member issued a statement in response to the National Mediation Board (NMB) releasing a final rule specifically designed to make it easier to decertify unions in the rail and aviation sectors:

“The NMB’s rule is an attempt by government officials to hand even more power to corporations at the expense of working people. Not only is this rule unnecessary, but it is ill-timed and tone deaf to the needs of aviation and rail workers, who face unprecedented pressure from industry giants.

“A union contract is the most effective tool workers have to make life better for themselves and their families. Yet, the two Republican Board members supporting this decision just made it easier to decertify unions in the rail and aviation sectors and bar employees from being able to vote for union representation for two years after decertification.”
