Cleveland Center Members at Labor Day Parade
“Those are air traffic controllers! We need them to keep us safe!” That was a statement heard on more than one occasion as a large group of Cleveland Center NATCA members and their families walked along the parade route on Labor Day. It was the 41st annual Cleveland Labor Day Parade. One member took the time to build a tower with an airplane on top. It was attached to a trailer that was decorated in red, white and blue. “When we heard people saying ‘Yay, air traffic controllers!’ it really brought a sense of pride,” said Brian White, NATCA’s Ohio state legislative coordinator. “So often we go to our facilities and work, never really understanding the impact on the general public. It was great to hear that what we do is appreciated!”
