United Airlines Mechanics Picket

November 25, 2014: United Airlines (UAL) professional aviation mechanics represented by the Teamsters Union held informational pickets at West Coast airports. United Airlines mechanics are informing the public that they may be forced to strike if the company refuses to keep its promise to reinstate the workers' pension plans.

The protest comes as negotiations enter their 24th month, the last twelve having been overseen by the National Mediation Board. In 2010, United Airlines merged with Continental Airlines and the parties have attempted to amalgamate bargaining agreements representing aircraft maintenance and related workers from three different work groups (Continental, United and Air Micronesia).

The 11,000 Teamster mechanics are determined to defend their family health benefits and restore their pensions.
