AFL-CIO Unions stand against teamsters raid at US Airways and American Airlines

The teamsters lose another representational election against the IAMAW this time at US Airways August 12, 2013.

After a year of empty promises and false campaign propaganda the teamsters’ airline division lose two more elections. The teamsters claimed to have collected 2800 election authorization cards but only recieved 1400 votes in the election loss. Many election authorization cards came from furloughed USAir mechanics raising the question of the honesty of the teamsters’ organizers at US Airways and the teamsters’ airline division.

The loss was followed three days later by the teamsters’ termination and self-withdrawal from their yearlong organizing campaign drive at American Airlines. Two teamsters paid organizers signed sworn affidavits about the common practice of teamsters organizers forging election authorization cards for mechanics they could not locate.

For the teamsters airline division to withdraw prior to an NMB investigation is a sure sign of election card forgeries occurring at American Airlines. The corrupt teamsters union and their paid organizers practice of forging election cards were exposed by former paid teamsters organizers.

Craft Unionism

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

A Mechanic Union and Mechanic Local Bylaws 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.

The ALPA Model

The Mechanics Class and Craft like the Pilot Craft and Class represent professionals who hold tremendous responsibility of the safe and reliable operation of aircraft in their hands every day..

We recognize that because of the limited size of our Mechanics Class and Craft and the diversity of mechanics working in our industry in both union and non-union shops that a Craft Union backed by the millions of union members in the AFL-CIO is the logical choice.

AFL-CIO Affiliation

A big strength of ALPA is their affiliation and solidarity with the unions that make up the AFL-CIO.

AFL-CIO National, State and City Labor Councils - support their affiliated ALPA members.

These same Labor Councils will provide our Mechanics with the forum and support to build a stronger Craft Union to represent our Mechanic and Related aviation professionals.
