Allegiant Air Crewmembers:
Congratulations on last week’s election results. On behalf of the Teamsters Local 1224 Executive Board, membership and staff, I welcome you to Teamsters Local 1224! With you as fellow members, 1224 is now 3500 plus aircraft flight deck crewmembers strong, part of the Airline Division of aviation professionals, all backed by the strength of the 1.4 million Teamsters nationwide.
This week, we will begin a membership drive to get you connected to and acquainted with Local 1224. Very soon after, we will begin the nomination and election procedures for your Allegiant Air Advisory Executive Council (ExCo). It will be important that you submit your membership applications quickly, as you must be a member in order to nominate someone for this position, accept a nomination for the position of Executive Council, or to vote in the election.
I have appointed business agent Greg Uselmann (firstname.lastname@example.org) as your lead business agent to guide your transition into Local 1224. Traey Liggett (email@example.com) from the International will remain a strong presence assisting Greg and your Interim ExCo. Should you have any questions throughout the transition, I encourage you to reach out to the Interim Executive Council (excoAllegiant@apa1224.org) who will be handling some of the day-to-day administration until your elected leadership is in place.
Please add this email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) to your contact list as an ‘approved sender’ or ‘friend’. Amanda Bledsoe, our Local 1224 communications director, is the primary vehicle for the distribution of messages from your union leadership.
Again, welcome to Teamsters Local 1224. We look forward to representing you throughout your negotiations for your first collective bargaining agreement, as well as to the contributions, skills, and experience your group will bring to the Teamsters.
Daniel C. Wells, President
Teamsters Local 1224
