Building an AFL-CIO Craft Union for the United Mechanics Class and Craft

AFL-CIO & Craft Unionism

About the AFL-CIO - The AFL-CIO is the umbrella federation for U.S. unions, with 56 unions representing 12.5 million working men and women.

We work to make the voices of working people heard in the White House, on Capitol Hill, in state capitals across the country and in corporate boardrooms. We provide an independent voice for working families and ways for working people to be actively engaged in politics and legislation.

The benefits of AFL-CIO Affiliations

Stronger together - To promote and draft legislation that protects our Aircraft mechanics profession and recognizes the work we do as aviation professionals.

Stronger together - Contract negotiations backed by National State and Local AFL-CIO councils with our mechanics bargaining for fair and equitable contracts.

Stronger together - Don't be on the strike line alone, you will be supported and backed by the largest labor federation in America.

Below are a few of the Airline AFL-CIO Craft Unions that we will be affiliated with and supported by.

Craft Unionism

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

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

An 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 timeframe 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 force 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.
