Continental workers reject union rep

Continental Airlines has announced that its field service employees rejected representation sought by the Transport Workers Union of America (TWU).“Once again, we are pleased that our co-workers recognized the value of our direct working relationship,” said Bill Meehan, senior vice president airport services. “We’ll continue to work together to honor the commitments and promises we’ve made and maintain our culture of trust and success.”

The TWU filed an election application with the National Mediation Board in October 2007. Continental’s field services employees covered by the election included ramp, operations and cargo agents.
