TWU Members Join Deny NAI Coalition for Day of Action at White House
Urge U.S. Government to Enforce U.S.–EU Air Transport Agreement, Defend Fair Competition
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Members from the Transport Workers Union of America’s Air Division joined representatives of organizations representing more than 200,000 aviation workers at a rally in front of the White House today. The coalition is calling on the Obama administration to enforce U.S. trade agreements by denying Norwegian Air International’s (NAI) application to serve the United States with a business plan that ignores U.S. trade policy, erodes fair competition, and threatens U.S. jobs.

NAI’s Scheme Should Not Fly
TWU Praises Congress for Taking Action
Following the release of bipartisan legislation today to prohibit Norwegian Air International's (NAI) Irish-flag subsidiary from violating labor standards in the aviation industry, the Transport Workers Union of America issued the following statement:
“As the Norwegian Air saga continues to rear its ugly head, we are grateful to the members of Congress who stand up against this bogus proposal with commonsense legislation that protects good jobs and fair competition. This bill would fight the Department of Transportation’s effort to allow airlines to flout labor standards in order to pad their bottom lines. It sends a message to any company looking to operate in the United States: if you don’t care about working people, you aren’t welcome here.
