Know Your Rights

A regular series of articles in the NATCA Insider weekly e-newsletter (to subscribe, email Doug Church) is devoted to your rights as a union member. From topics such as negotiations to the Hatch Act, the articles are put together by the NATCA Labor Relations Department to help all NATCA members become informed of their rights. (Items listed from newest to oldest.) If you have any questions about any of the articles or your rights in general, contact the NATCA National Office (202-628-5451) and ask to speak to a member of the LR staff.
