Teamsters Vote to Strike

Teamster mechanics have overwhelmingly rejected United Airlines’ final offer. More than 93% of the 9,000 mechanics in the bargaining unit who voted, were against the company’s “substandard” proposition.

Jim Hoffa, Teamsters General President, says, “At a time when United Airlines is incredibly profitable, it is clear that mechanics deserve a better offer from the company. United is profitable because of the dedication, passion and professionalism of their workers and the carrier needs to reflect those characteristics in their negotiating position.”
