Statement from NATCA President Paul Rinaldi: The Re-Election of President Obama and Vice President Biden - (11/7/2012)

CONTACT: Doug Church, 301-346-8245

“Today, NATCA is very proud and excited to congratulate President Obama and Vice President Biden on their re-election victory.

“We look forward to working with the Administration to move forward and continue the highly successful collaborative work we have undertaken with the Federal Aviation Administration. Our nation’s airspace system is already the world’s safest and most efficient, as well as a contributor of $1.3 trillion in economic output.  From day one, President Obama has been fully committed to improving it and we have been proud to stand with him. We are eager to continue this progress by modernizing the system and providing air travelers the safety and professionalism they expect and deserve.

“The collaboration between NATCA and the FAA has been the result of both the President’s restoration of fair collective bargaining for controllers and other safety professionals, and his strong leadership to restore and expand labor-management partnerships in the federal government. We believe this kind of collaboration is good for the system and ultimately enhances its safety and efficiency.

“While the next four years will present us with challenges, we are inspired by the words of the President last night when he said, ‘I’ve never been more hopeful about our future. I have never been more hopeful about America.’”


The National Air Traffic Controllers Association, AFL-CIO, represents over 20,000 highly skilled controllers, engineers and other safety-related professionals.
