As of March 1, 2020, Envoy employees will be required to wear new Lands’ End uniforms unless management makes a short-term exception.
Employees affected by this transition are those currently wearing a cross-functional or tailored uniform. The transition will result in adjustments to members' allotments.

Today our CWA bargaining team reached a tentative agreement (TA) with Envoy Air for our first collective bargaining agreement.

The new TA provides for a six and a half year contract that raises wages, establishes work rules, and improves benefits and job security for nearly 5,000 Envoy Passenger Service Agents in approximately 100 cities across the United States. The agreement also includes a ratification and retention bonus based on each agent’s years of service in recognition of the time spent in negotiations and to encourage retention.

I've been a passenger service agent for 30 years, and I can't remember the last time I got a significant raise. Like you, I'm tired of the pressures of the job getting worse every day just so executives can line their own pockets and threaten us with outsourcing.
Bargaining with Envoy resumed last week, and the company refused to meet our demands for significant wage increases or a reduction in the length of the contract. This is simply unacceptable, and we must show Envoy management that we are united for a fair contract!

A high-profile investigative report on working conditions at Miami International Airport aired yesterday on Miami's CBS station. Envoy Agent James McKnight spoke out about poverty wages at Envoy.

We continued to bargain with the company on Friday. However, since Envoy is refusing to respond to our comprehensive proposal until mediation begins in May, we did not accomplish as much as we had hoped. We have agreed to meet with the company and the mediator in Dallas on May 20-22 and in Pittsburgh on June 18-20.
We continued to bargain with the company on Thursday in Dallas. Envoy agents Martha Chentis (ORD), Shannon Kitchen (LCH), and Takisha Gower (DFW) joined us again to observe bargaining. While there were some positive results from the meeting, the company's position is unacceptable.
We resumed bargaining with Envoy yesterday afternoon in Dallas. This first round of bargaining will continue through Friday afternoon. We've added three Envoy agents to observe bargaining--Martha Chentis (ORD), Shannon Kitchen (LCH), and Takisha Gower (DFW).
