Brothers and Sisters of CWA Local 13301,
Due to the recent vacancy of our Local Executive Vice President I along with the Executive Board have unanimously selected Lisa Blanco to serve as our new Local Executive Vice President and will serve the remaining portion of the term of office.
I am pleased to have Sister Blanco join the Executive Board, having served the membership these past couple years in many roles such as Shop Steward, media communications and technology projects.
Let’s embrace our Sister in her new position.

Tell Congress: Extend the CARES Act
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, passenger service agents and other aviation workers have been on the frontline of the unprecedented crisis faced by the airline industry.
In March, after fast mobilization by airline workers, Congress passed the CARES Act to keep employees on payroll with wages and benefits. But this pandemic is not over, and the program is set to expire in October. If Congress doesn’t take action soon, mass layoffs in the aviation industry are inevitable.
Send a letter to Congress telling them to extend the CARES Act Payroll Support Program through March 2021 to protect hundreds of thousands of aviation workers.https://actionnetwork.org/letters/cwaagentscaresact/
President Gwen Ivey accepted the resignation of Anthony Early from the position of Executive Vice President and as a Shop Steward.
Please see the attached letter. Effective 17 July 2020
Dues Info via email from CWA . 18 May 2020
For the past few weeks, CWA has worked with American Airlines to reduce union dues for members currently on leave. This has been a difficult task that required many individual adjustments.
In order to speed up the process, we will pause all dues deductions for members in these groups and then turn the deductions back on when most members in that group should be returning to work.
This is not a perfect system, but is the best solution available to provide quick relief to members who have taken leave. This is how the pause will work:
If you accepted a three-month leave, your dues will no longer be deducted as of the May 22, 2020, paycheck. Your dues deduction will resume on July 13, 2020. If you accepted a six-month leave, your dues will no longer be deducted as of June 1, 2020. Your dues deduction will resume on October 19, 2020. If you accepted a twelve-month leave or took a VEOP with the twelve-month pay option, your dues will no longer be deducted as of August 10, 2020. Your dues will resume on April 19, 2021.
If you have a question about your dues deductions and are unable to reach a Local union officer or steward, send an email to email@example.com and we will respond as soon as possible.
