February 2017 Newsletter

In order to facilitate communications & reduce the number of times we contact you, your Negotiating Committee & Base Representatives have begun a monthly newsletter to keep you informed of events occurring throughout our system and provide you with help and information about how we can help you. If any important issues arise, we will still contact you as necessary, but communications directly from your NC & Base Reps will be featured here.

If there are any topics you would like to see covered, please email us at local577@twu.org.
