Mechanics and related class and craft workers at Horizon Air have overwhelming voted to join the Teamsters Union by a 245 to 187 vote. The National Mediation Board certified the results today.
Looking for a real union with real power, the 485 mechanics and related employees in the bargaining unit opted to join the Teamsters after their former association, AMFA, failed to provide representation. At the forefront of the campaign was the issue of outsourcing, a large threat to air safety, homeland security and good jobs in the U.S. The workers are based in Portland, Oregon.
