The following appeal is from the American Rights At Work organization.
Take Action:

Tell US Airways to cut ties with anti-union consultants

Piedmont Airlines, a subsidiary of US Airways, is paying $375 per hour to the notorious unionbusting firm Labor Relations Institute (LRI) in a ploy to keep its workers from exercising their right to form a union.

Workers shouldn't face interference or coercion – Piedmont and US Airways should allow their workers to decide for themselves if they want to form a union.

Ask US Airways CEO Doug Parker to cut ties with LRI. It could make all the difference for workers at Piedmont.
Please go to this link to send the following letter to US Airways management.

It has come to my attention that one of your company's subsidiaries, Piedmont Airlines, has hired Labor Relations Institute (LRI), a notorious anti-union firm, to prevent its workers from organizing.

Your employees have worked hard to make your airline a success; they should be able to decide for themselves if they want to form a union -- without the outside interference and coercion from a firm like LRI.

Rather than spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on firms like LRI, you should invest in improving jobs and working conditions. That would help maintain a positive, productive relationship with your employees -- not the adversarial relationship created by hiring LRI.

I strongly urge you to cut ties with LRI and allow your employees to decide on their own whether to form a union. I hope to see swift action by your company to stop this unionbusting behavior.

Thank you.
