United Mechanics building an AFL-CIO Craft Union
If you have questions or comments send us an email.
Aircraft mechanics over the last 50 years have fought to have their own craft based union.
Our Mechanic District and Mechanic Local Bylaws were built based on the same democratic principles we have fought for over the years.
Our AFL-CIO Craft and Class philosophy is built on thework 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.
One man - One Vote
We believe in a democratic Mechanics Class and Craft only union that represents
Aircraft Mechanics and Related in affiliated mechanic locals across the United States.
We can have a union that will represent the men and women working aviation in our Class and Craft today.
A voice for the Mechanics and Related in our profession.
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.
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.
