Lombardo promises to increase lobbying efforts

Harry Lombardo, the new president of the Transport Workers Union (TWU) has promised to increase lobbying, oppose outsourcing, and help unions strengthen ties to local communities.

One of Lombardo’s first actions will be leading a protest Thursday at the Las Vegas headquarters of Allegiant Air, where TWU won the right to represent about 600 flight attendants but hasn’t secured a contract in more than two years of bargaining.

Allegiant spokeswoman Jessica Wheeler said the company wants to reach an agreement. “The TWU is welcome to use their resources however they see fit,” she said of the protest, “but we believe our time is better spent attacking the issues at the negotiation table rather than attacking one another.”

Lombardo will continue TWU’s support for the merger of American Airlines and US Airways.
