FLRA Grants Union Election for FAA Employees at Service Centers - (9/7/2010)

CONTACT: Doug Church, 202-220-9802

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) has determined that an election will be held to determine whether the 2186 Series, Aviation Technical Systems Specialists employed at the Federal Aviation Administration’s three largest regional offices will be represented by the National Air Traffic Controllers Association.

These employees work at the FAA Air Traffic Organization’s (ATO) Service Centers, located in Atlanta, Fort Worth, Tex., and Seattle. These employees are primarily responsible for planning, budget formulation, integration and requirements functions relating to the several service units such as Terminal and En Route. 

Ballots are scheduled to go out by mail this week. A ballot count is expected in early October.

The move is the latest effort by NATCA to organize non-air traffic controller FAA aviation safety professionals who currently do not have representation or a collective voice in their workplace.

NATCA is the exclusive representative of over 15,000 air traffic controllers serving the FAA, the Department of Defense and the private sector. In addition, NATCA represents approximately 1,200 FAA engineers, 600 traffic management coordinators, 500 aircraft certification professionals, agency operational support staff, regional personnel from FAA's logistics, budget, finance and computer specialist divisions, and agency occupational health specialists, nurses and medical program specialists.
