To the Membership of Local 591:
The disturbing incident in Miami has been an unwelcomed blackeye to both our profession, and our never-ending commitment to safety. As President of Local 591, I want to start by stating that I absolutely condemn the acts that have been reported.

TWU Local 591 Chairperson Election Schedule 2019
August 28, 2019
Attention: An election will be conducted for the position of TWU Local 591 Regional Chairperson, Station Chairperson and Section Chairperson. Please note: All election times will be in Central Daylight Time (CDT).
The TWU-IAM Association today submitted a letter to the National Mediation Board (NMB) requesting they compel American Airlines to fulfill their obligation to bargain with The Association.
American management has tried to circumvent your negotiating committee by filing a lawsuit, misrepresenting the facts to Congress and trying to negotiate directly with employees. All these standard union-busting tactics do is divert resources from the only place negotiations can be resolved – the bargaining table. Every day American spends away from the negotiating table is another day you will have to wait for the contract you deserve.
Your Association negotiators remain ready to continue negotiations at any time, with or without the National Mediation Board. All we need is American Airlines to be willing to send people to negotiations with the authority to complete a deal.
