Your TWU Local 577 Negotiating Team (NT) has just completed a three-day mediation session with Allegiant Air management at the direction of the National Mediation Board (NMB). Allegiant Flight Attendants Marilou Resendes, Todd Semingson, Christa Gifford, Raychel Armstrong, and Dave Rodriguez represented your Local Union. They were joined by TWU Air Division Director Mike Mayes, TWU International Vice President Thom McDaniel, and TWU Strategic Advisor and Attorney Mark Richard. In attendance for Allegiant were Tracy Tulle, Allen Thieman, Hayden Barton, Andrea Gansen, Trent Porter, and FordHarrison Attorney Ellen Ham. The meeting was moderated by NMB mediator Jack Kane.
During the three-day session, several comprehensive proposals were passed and there was productive discussion. While there was no final agreement reached, the Union and the Company agreed to meet again next week in Las Vegas to attempt to make further progress.
This was, by far, the most productive session we have had since we resumed negotiations. We look forward to returning to the table and moving toward the fair contract that our Members deserve. Thank you for your continued unity and support and we will update you when the session concludes next week.
