WASHINGTON – The National Air Traffic Controllers Association, in a Federal Labor Relations Authority ballot count yesterday, won the right to represent the 2186 Series Aviation Technical Systems Specialists employed at the Federal Aviation Administration’s three largest regional offices.

These approximately 100 employees work at the FAA Air Traffic Organization’s (ATO) Service Centers, located in Atlanta, Fort Worth, Texas, and Seattle, and are primarily responsible for planning, budget formulation, integration and requirements functions relating to the service units such as Terminal and En Route. They are performing work that was previously accomplished by other NATCA bargaining units including staff specialists and engineers and architects.

The election marks 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 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, 700 aircraft certification professionals, 145 Alaska Flight Service specialists, 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.
