NATCA Adds More New Bargaining Unit Members - (5/30/2000)

WASHINGTON, D.C.-The National Air traffic Controllers Association continues its successful organizing effort by adding another 786 bargaining unit members. The union has organized nearly 1,500 additional Federal Aviation Administration employees since the beginning of the year.
The FAA's traffic management coordinators chose NATCA as their bargaining unit representative on May 17. This group of more than 600 employees work in concert with controllers to manage air traffic flows at the nation's ATC facilities and the command center in Herndon, Va. An overwhelming 80 percent of eligible TMCs voted in the election, securing a 62 percent victory for NATCA.

"We are proud the TMCs chose our union to provide them representation at the bargaining table," said NATCA President Mike McNally. "This coalition has been a long time coming. Many dedicated individuals worked with our organizing staff for more than 18 months to ensure this election was successful."

On May 19, 81 percent of eligible FAA automation specialists participated in another election. NATCA received 86 percent of this vote to represent the 180 computer and engineering specialists nationwide.

"It makes sense to bring all these hard working men and women into the NATCA family." said McNally. "It will allow more of the professionals in the air traffic community to speak with a unified voice."

NATCA currently represents approximately 17,500 FAA employees including 15,000 controllers, 1,200 engineers and other ATC specialists.
