Frontier Airlines ramp workers vote for TWU union representation – The Denver Post 7-10-14

Posted: July 11, 2014 in Uncategorized

Frontier Airlines’ ramp workers have for the first time voted to unionize, and about 400 Denver-based workers are hoping this will mean greater job security in an uncertain industry.The ballots were tabulated Thursday in Washington, D.C., under the supervision of the U.S. National Mediation Board. More than 60 percent of the 219 votes cast were in favor of representation.Ramp workers for the Denver-based carrier sought representation from the Transport Workers Union of America after the company made several changes to its employees’ benefits and to its own business model.”Everyone is excited to know we have a voice,” said Brian Fisher, a Frontier worker for seven years who was in Washington for the ballot counting.”The first thing for us is job security,” he said. “Everywhere you look, you see things like what happened this week, with United outsourcing jobs.”
