Today, the Show-Me-State Delegation in the House of Representatives joined forces for Missouri's TWA employees. Rep. Emerson, along with Reps. Skelton, McCarthy, Hulshof, Graves, and Clay introduced the "Airline Workers Fairness Act." The legislation, which mirrors legislation originally introduced by Senator Kit Bond (R-MO) would move seniority integration talks for TWA and American Airlines workers into independent 3rd party arbitration. They were joined by another Heartland Legislator -- John Shimkus of Illinois and Robert Simmons of Connecticut. They got a symbolic boost from Nevada Congressman Jim Gibbons, a commercial airline pilot who joined them in sponsoring the legislation. The same legislation has been introduced by Senator Kit Bond.
