Craft Unionism

UAL mechanics over the last 50 years have fought to have their own craft based union.

Our Mechanic Union and Mechanic Local Bylaws will be built based on the same democratic principles we have fought for over the years.

Our AFL-CIO Craft and Class philosophy is built on the work of mechanics who over the years have fought to have a democratic Class and Craft union of our own like the Pilots have with ALPA.

Stop the UAL Teamsters concessionary Proposal

The proposal presented to our mechanics is a slap in the face to our mechanics after years of hard work and dedication to our profession by our mechanics.

The proposal would cover a nearly 10 year time frame with no Retroactive Pay costing our members tens of thousands of dollars in pay that is due over the past three years.

The elimination of our current Medical Benefits to be forced into a teamsters run health and welfare fund with the forced deduction of hourly wages to go into a teamsters run VEBA health care fund is unacceptable.
