Transport Workers Union Launches Website to Rally Support for American Airlines Workers

TULSA, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Representatives of the Transport Workers Union, Local 514, today announced the launch of a website that allows all Tulsa residents and people around the world to pledge support for American Airlines jobs and related positions that could be impacted by the AMR bankruptcy. As of today, nearly 2,000 individuals have added their names to the list of supporters. The website address is www.IsupportAmericanJobs.com.

“We believe that this website, www.IsupportAmericanJobs.com, and related efforts will help bring attention to the largest concentration of middle-class jobs in Oklahoma”

“We believe that this website, www.IsupportAmericanJobs.com, and related efforts will help bring attention to the largest concentration of middle-class jobs in Oklahoma,” said Sam Cirri, president of Transport Workers Union, Local 514, which represents about 5,600 airline mechanics and related workers in Tulsa. “It’s critical that our elected officials and community leaders fight to keep these jobs local, instead of allowing this work to be reduced or outsourced overseas.”

The online pledge states that supporters will tell public officials, news media and community leaders that employees at American Airlines, American Eagle and all workers dependent on these airlines must be treated fairly. They are pledging their support for no attacks on pension funds and no outsourcing of good-paying American jobs. Any person interested in supporting the pledge can visit the website to submit their name and view the list of people who have already signed the pledge.
