Airline Teamsters Vote Teamsters United

Airline Teamsters made their voices heard, calling for change at the highest level of our union.

The largest single group is United Airlines mechanics. Anywhere United Airlines Teamsters were found, Teamsters United surged.

Texas Local 19 voted 89% for Fred. Chicago Local 781 voted 74% for Fred.

International VP George Miranda’s Local 210 split 51-49%, but it was the United workers who cast most of Fred’s votes. The same pattern was at work in Western Locals 856, 986 and 455.

But the sweep went beyond United Airlines. Republic Holdings pilots, who fly regional jets for Delta, United and American, make up national Local 357 and voted 93% for Fred. UPS air mechanics are in national Local 2727, which went 59% for Fred.
