Updated December 2, 2013: Teamster mechanics who are without a contract picketed on November 25 at airports from throughout the country to demand an end to concessions and a contract. They were joined by AFA flight attendants who are also facing difficulties in their negotiations. Mechanics and Flight Attendants along with other workers have taken major concessions in previous negotiations in the last 10 years and they believe that they need to get gains as were promised by the company. We stand in solidarity!
