Tragedy visited our CWA Agents family on Sunday, August 11, when passenger service agent Kendrick Darrell Hudson died on the job at Charlotte Douglas International airport. Agents honored his memory at a vigil on August 18.
The results of our CWA-Envoy bargaining survey are in and our first meeting with the company is April 17-19. We need strong and visible support from our members at every station, and are pleased to see everyone joining in the "green wave" and rallying for fair wages.
Piedmont members in Local 13301 are getting motivated to lead, participating in steward training, and mobilizing for political action as never before. We need every single member to become involved with positive thoughts and actions.
As of January 1, 2019, new protections from assault went into effect for passenger service agents across the country.
