INDIANAPOLIS – Last week, the governor signed Senate Enrolled Act (SEA) 512, authored by State Senator David Niezgodski (D-South Bend), into law. SEA 512 benefits employees of the airline industry who frequently swap shifts to amend their work schedules. Sen. Niezgodski had the following comments on his bill’s signing:

“I’m happy that the state will support the needs of our airline employees with the signing of SEA 512. I want our airline employees to be able to manage their lives by swapping shifts as they used to be able to do before the American Airlines CWA merger. Shift swapping allows airline employees to take time off and balance their lives with their jobs, and a bipartisan coalition agreed that it was time to get this language into law.”
