NJASAP’s fundamental purpose is to safeguard your NetJets career, driving every decision made, motion passed, policy created and initiative undertaken. To do so, the Association maintains an unflinching focus on enforcing the Collective Bargaining Agreement and ensures the Membership has the tools necessary to take an active role in the enforcement mandate. In anticipation of collective bargaining, extraordinary preparatory efforts will take place to position NJASAP negotiators to enhance the hard fought gains accorded by the existing agreement, and the same resources and energy will be allocated to formal Section Six talks. Cultivating a diverse, highly experienced Union Volunteer Network is consequential to meeting organizational objectives, including NJASAP’s continuing efforts to help maintain the safest possible operational environment. Through each of these activities, the Association strives to act in the best interests of the collective and to exceed each member’s expectations with regard to the return on his or her dues investment.
