NMB Orders Representation Election for Spirit Ramp Agents

The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) today announced that the National Mediation Board (NMB) determined a representation dispute exists for the fleet service class and craft at Spirit Airlines and ordered an election take place from 12:01 am EDT, June 16, 2014 to 2:00 pm EDT, July 8, 2014.

“Ramp Agents at Spirit will now have the opportunity to choose respect and dignity on the job, and have a voice in determining their collective future,” said IAM District 141 Director of Organizing Joe Stassi. “Only one more step, and that’s to vote yes I want the IAM!”

On June 9, 2014 the NMB will mail voting instructions to all eligible voters. The instructions will contain a Voter Identification Number (VIN) and an Access Code and voting will be conducted via telephone and internet.
