Rep. Ruben Gallego on DOT’s Tentative Decision to Allow Norwegian Air to Operate in the United States
Washington, DC – Today, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced gave tentative approval to license Norwegian Air International (NAI) to fly to the United States.
Rep. Ruben Gallego released the following statement:
“Norwegian Air has gained a leg-up on their competition by employing questionable business tactics that violate U.S. and international labor laws and regulations. If the Department of Transportation allows them to operate in the United States, they will be choosing to reward bad practices at the cost of worker’s rights and American jobs.
“It is my hope that the DOT will reverse this decision following the public comment period. If they do not, I will join my colleagues in Congress to fight to protect American workers.”
