Employees Hold Rally, March Outside Company’s Headquarters In Indianapolis
Republic Airways pilots, flight attendants and mechanics, members of a Monitoring Committee and other allies rallied and marched outside the company’s headquarters in Indianapolis Thursday to demand that "the company honor its professional employees who keep passengers safe."
The Monitoring Committee is made up of faith, political and academic leaders and was formed to help make sure the workplace is free from intimidation and harassment while Republic mechanics form their union. Republic provides regional service for mainline carriers United, American, US Airways and Delta.
“I’m here to tell the company to respect our federally protected rights to form our union,” said Thad Tivin, a Republic mechanic based at Reagan National Airport near Washington, D.C. and four-year employee. “The company is violating our rights and we are fed up with these attacks. Management needs to start honoring their employees.”
“The company needs to stop attacking its pilots, flight attendants and mechanics and treat us with the respect and dignity we deserve as professionals who keep the flying public safe,” said Craig Moffatt, President of Teamsters Local 357 and a Republic pilot based in Indianapolis. “We are calling on CEO Bryan Bedford and other top management to stop the mistreatment and violations of our rights.”
