Service + Solidarity Spotlight: Union Members Picket United’s Board of Directors Meeting
Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.
A total of 200 United Airlines pilots, together with 100 members of the Machinists (IAM) and the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA-CWA) who work at United, held an informational picket during the airline’s board of directors meeting in Houston on Wednesday. The Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA), which includes pilots at United, said its last contract was negotiated 10 years ago and is now more than four years out of date.
Also on Wednesday, ALPA, AFA-CWA, IAM and two other unions that represent workers at the airline announced a joint bargaining campaign to secure fair agreements with United. “We have each other’s backs in bargaining and we will stand together until all of us have ratified contracts that reflect the world-class airline United should be,” the unions said.
