 Voting has closed for the Tentative Agreement between Virgin America and the Inflight Teammates, represented by the Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO, and the results are as follows:

  • Yes: 415
  • No: 490
The Transitional Agreement has failed with eighty-eight percent (88%) of our work group casting a vote.
TWU will be contacting Virgin America Leadership to discuss the outcome of the vote. Thank you for your participation in the election, and we will keep you informed regarding future steps in the process.
Thank you for your patience as we have prepared the materials for the vote on our recently negotiated Tentative Agreement (TA). We have worked diligently to ensure that our ITMs have the necessary resources to thoroughly comprehend the Agreement. We also want you to understand how we got here and what lies in our future.
We have scheduled an aggressive roll-out of the TA. We will send an email to all ITMs on Sunday, August 28 (tomorrow) with a link to the website that contains the full-text proposal, TA Highlights, and comprehensive “Questions & Answers.”. The site also includes an Online Presentation (in PowerPoint or PDF format) that you can use for the upcoming Conference Call presentation. This educational Conference Call will be held the following day, Monday, August 29 at 10:00 A.M., PDT (1:00 P.M., EDT).

Fifteen months ago, your Negotiating Committee at TWU VX began negotiations with Virgin America Leadership on our historic, first Contract that was intended to be the foundation of our new Union. We were making significant progress at the negotiations table when it was announced, on April 4th, 2016, that Alaska Airlines planned to purchase Virgin America. At that point, we had some difficult decisions to consider concerning our next course of action.
