Republican Senators on Monday introduced a bill that would give the ailing airline industry more than $28 billion in additional aid as carriers get ready to cut more than 30,000 jobs as early as next month.
Airlines have struggled throughout the coronavirus pandemic, racking up billions in losses, while a significant rebound in travel demand has yet to materialize.

RE: 9/11 Anniversary
Dear Brothers and Sisters:
Today we reflect on this nineteenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States. We remember the lives of those who perished, were injured, or lost loved ones in New York, Shanksville, and the Pentagon.

To the Local 591 Membership:
According to the Department of Labor, Labor Day…is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contribution’s workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
Recently the Local 591 EAP/MAP team was in attendance at the annual Benefits Conference held in Nashville Tennessee (BNA). At this meeting we were informed by Union Benefit Planners that American Airlines has decided to remove the TWU Voluntary Benefit deduction lines on our members e-pays. As American Airlines has taken the position that they are not obligated to do so, please note this will not affect AA added benefits or LTD lines. As of now we have no details on when this will take place.
With this uncertainty Union Benefits Planners would like the membership to provide as much information as possible. If you have a TWU VOL Benefits line on your pay stub please log into the TWU website www.twuaaunionbenefits.com and complete as much of the info as you can ASAP. Medical benefits open enrollment period is October 21st through November 1st, 2019. The Local 591 EAP/MAP team will be ready and available to help our members navigate through the enrollment process.
Posted are the presentations given to us at the conference, please review and if you have any questions please contact your EAP/MAP team.
