No Union Fights Harder for Title II Mechanics than the Teamsters

Allen Cosides and Glenn Marcisak are mechanics at United Airlines. Allen is an auto mechanic and Glenn works in facility maintenance – they are both proud Teamsters. When they heard that rumors were circulating at AA that the Teamsters would not fight for Title II mechanics, they decided to tell their story.

Click here watch the video from Allen and Glenn.

“There are rumors out there that the IBT will not go to bat for the Title II guys – that is not true,” says Allen. As he explains, a year after the Teamsters were voted in at UAL, the company wanted to outsource nine auto shops and building maintenance stations. “The IBT quickly stepped up to the plate,” according to Allen. All but two of the stations were saved and then the Teamsters successfully reopened those two stations during negotiations in 2011.

“From the onset when the Teamsters came to United Airlines I had an outstanding grievance for about two years that was resolved in about two weeks,” says Glenn, who also believes that a vote for the Teamsters is a vote in the best interests of Title II mechanics at AA.

“Do not be deceived by all the lies that are out there,” adds Allen. “The IBT will fight for you Title II guys just like any other tech.”
