The Air Division represents members at some of the nation’s largest airlines, including American, Southwest, and Envoy, in addition to members at several U.S. military and service bases, including Fort Lee, Fort Gordon, and the NASA Kennedy Space Center. We are proud to have bargained industry-leading contracts for working people across nearly every class and craft in the aviation industry, from flight attendants, to mechanics and related, stores, ramp agents, flight training crew instructors, and dispatchers. Our service contract locals are growing rapidly, adding members in dozens of fields on military installations all over the U.S.

In addition to traditional contract campaigns, the Air Division participated in the International Campaign Unit’s inaugural campaign effort, the ‘Today We Unite’ campaign for justice at American Airlines. Click the button below to visit that campaign’s page.
