Indian River County School Board
Last week, workers at the School Board of Indian River County, members of CWA Local 3180, ratified a new contract that includes an increase in pay, up to 4% in some cases. The new 3-year contract covers 752 workers, including teacher assistants, secretaries, cafeteria workers, maintenance workers, custodians, school bus drivers, bus assistants, media and computer lab assistants, and clerks.
After years of failed negotiations, Flight Attendants at Piedmont Airlines, a subsidiary of American Airlines, are currently taking a strike authorization vote that would allow them to go on strike at any moment if the company continues to refuse to reach a fair contract. Piedmont Flight Attendants helped keep the carrier flying through the COVID-19 pandemic and have been on the frontlines of dealing with difficult flying conditions. However, management's latest proposal includes only tiny raises with significant healthcare cost increases meaning many Flight Attendants would take home less tomorrow than they do today. They deserve better. Click here to learn more and sign a petition to support the Piedmont Flight Attendants.
