IAM Air Transport General Vice President Richie Johnsen spoke to District 19 convention delegates in Tucson, AZ. His powerful speech focused on major IAM organizing campaigns at JetBlue, Swissport, and JetStream Airlines that are currently underway.
This fall will bring the beginning of another huge organizing campaign, Johnsen stated.
“We’re going to do things never been done before,” said Johnsen.
Johnsen talked about how four unions are collaborating to launch a major organizing campaign at Delta Air Lines.
“Let Delta Air Lines try to come after the entire labor movement instead of targeting one,” said Johnsen.
