International Representative Amanda Sawyer-Malone Appointed International Vice President

ATU International President John Costa has appointed ATU International Representative Amanda Sawyer-Malone as an International Vice President with approval by the ATU General Executive Board.

“From being a rank-and-file bus operator to becoming the first female President of her Local to serving as an International Representative, Amanda has a proven history of accomplishments, leadership, and work on behalf of our members,” said Costa. “She has broken barriers, understands inclusivity, and represents the future of our Union and the labor movement. We welcome Amanda as a strong addition to the General Executive Board, where she will continue to do the important work of serving our members and our Union.” 

Amanda became an ATU member in March 1999 as a bus operator for Local 1177-Norfolk, VA. She then ran for election and became a Shop Steward in 2012. Amanda was the first woman to become President of Local 1177, making history in 2013, serving three consecutive terms. She was appointed International Representative earlier this year by International President Costa before being appointed International Vice President.
