General Vice President Sito Pantoja issued the following statement on the Department of Transportation’s “show cause order” that could pave the way for Norwegian Air International’s (NAI) entry into the US aviation market:
“Today’s decision by the DOT that could grant entry to NAI into the US aviation market and cause the loss of thousands of US airline jobs is anti-worker and bad policy.
NAI is designed to subvert Norway’s employment and regulatory laws to gain an unfair advantage over US and EU airlines that play by the rules. Congress and the Administration needs to fight for American workers and stop the DOT’s senseless policy misadventures. Decisions like this are the reason US workers feel burned by out of touch politicians from both sides of the aisle.
The IAM calls on the Obama Administration and DOT Secretary Foxx to reverse course and do what’s right for US airline workers.”
