This TWU Local 591 Executive Board has listened, and continues to listen, to the Membership within the TWU-IAM Association. With the confidence that our Local 591 Members already know that this Board believes that they deserve to be heard, it has become clearer to us that many IAM Members also want to be heard as well. Because we continue to listen to Members, both our own and those in the IAM, this TWU Local 591 Executive Board has come to the realization that the fundamental differences between our two Union internal structures, and not the Membership, are simply too great to overcome.

To all Association Members:
Today starts the next step in our efforts to deliver a long overdue, and promised vote on which Union, TWU or IAM, should represent all the Members in the Association within the M&R and MLS ranks. The Association was an ill-advised concept put forth at the urging of the late AFL-CIO President, Richard Trumka.
Statement from Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh on Supreme Court ruling on OSHA emergency temporary standard on vaccination, testing
WASHINGTON – U.S. Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh issued the following statement on the Supreme Court ruling on the department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s emergency temporary standard on vaccination and testing:
“I am disappointed in the court’s decision, which is a major setback to the health and safety of workers across the country. OSHA stands by the Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard as the best way to protect the nation’s workforce from a deadly virus that is infecting more than 750,000 Americans each day and has taken the lives of nearly a million Americans.
“OSHA promulgated the ETS under clear authority established by Congress to protect workers facing grave danger in the workplace, and COVID is without doubt such a danger. The emergency temporary standard is based on science and data that show the effectiveness of vaccines against the spread of coronavirus and the grave danger faced by unvaccinated workers. The commonsense standards established in the ETS remain critical, especially during the current surge, where unvaccinated people are 15-20 times more likely to die from COVID-19 than vaccinated people. OSHA will be evaluating all options to ensure workers are protected from this deadly virus.
“We urge all employers to require workers to get vaccinated or tested weekly to most effectively fight this deadly virus in the workplace. Employers are responsible for the safety of their workers on the job, and OSHA has comprehensive COVID-19 guidance to help them uphold their obligation.
