My name is Donielle Prophete. I am the President of CWA Local 3645, which represents Piedmont agents at 24 stations, including Montgomery Regional Airport (MGM) in Alabama. On December 31, one of our members at MGM, Courtney Edwards, was fatally injured in an on-the-job accident below the wing.
On December 8, a coalition of aviation workers—including members of CWA, UNITE-HERE, SEIU, and allied organizations—came out in 15 cities across the country to advocate for improved national labor standards under the Good Jobs for Good Airports Act (GJGA).
