Quotes

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, in a statement, added, "this victory will energize ongoing organizing efforts in the South."
"They enshrine the power of corporations in ways only loosely related to trade. They lock in liberalisation, promote privatisation, and restrict governments' right to regulate. The global financial crisis made clear the catastrophic results of failing to adequately regulate the financial markets.”"
"I can't tell you how great this victory is for us," said Debra Ewing , a 15-year US Airways agent in Phoenix, Ariz. "American Airlines customer service agents have tried for over 20 years to gain representation and the merger with US Airways allowed the Teamsters to step in and bring home a win. This means an end to so much outsourcing for American agents who will regain profit-sharing, shift differentials, a three-tiered medical plan, paid vacation and more. That's what union representation is – and now we all have it."
...our employees as we continue to bring our work groups together," said Mike Bonds, executive vice president, Human Resources and Labor Relations. "We are committed to reaching agreements that are good for our people and for the company."
