NATCA Pledges $10,000 in Support of Striking UPS Workers

Washington, D.C. - The organization representing the nation's air traffic controllers joined the AFL-CIO and other unions in support of striking United Parcel Service workers. The National Air Traffic Controllers Association pledged $10,000 today to assist fellow union brothers and sisters in their time of need.

NATCA's National Executive Board passed the following resolution: "Whereas, the elected officials and membership of the National Air Traffic Controllers Association are acutely aware of the hardships being endured by our brothers and sisters employed by the United Parcel Service; and "Whereas, the AFL-CIO has committed its resources in support of those workers during this time of great need; and "Whereas, NATCA wholeheartedly supports this commitment: "Therefore, be it resolved that the National Air Traffic Controllers Association pledges $10,000 toward the AFL-CIO's fund to support the striking workers employed by the United Parcel Service; and "Be it further resolved that the National Air Traffic Controllers Association will continue to encourage its membership to provide, in the spirit of solidarity, real-time support to the picket lines and welfare of the striking workers employed by the United Parcel Service."

NATCA locals across the country have supported UPS employees since the beginning of the strike. Members organized efforts to walk the picket lines along side their union brothers and sisters. "We are proud to join the AFL-CIO and all of our union brothers and sisters," said NATCA President Barry Krasner. "At this moment, the workers in this country and, indeed, the brotherhood of workers worldwide should rejoice in the knowledge that we stand together in support of those of us who are in great need."
