Pride in Our Profession - Professionalism in our work
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.
The AFL-CIO was created in 1955 by the merger of the AFL American Federation of Labor and CIO Congress of Industrial Organizations.
The AFL-CIO is a democratic voluntary federation of 57 National and International labor unions that represent 12.2 million working people.
In states and communities,the AFL-CIO amplifies the voices of working families through the 51 AFL-CIO-chartered state federations (including Puerto Rico) and more than 500 chartered central labor councils, led by officers and boards elected by local union delegates.Read More

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.Read More
