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.
Articles & Fliers
Articles and Fliers covering the failures of the teamsters at United Airlines and other Airlines.
We provide factual information so our mechanics can take a stand against the teamsters union and
make an informed decision on union representation.
UAL Contracts and other useful information.
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.
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.
