Marc Schneider Honored by Indiana AFL-CIO for 26 Years of Service

NATCA member Marc Schneider, who served as NATCA Indianapolis Center (ZID) FacRep until his retirement in December, was recognized for his unwavering dedication and service to the labor movement with the Indiana AFL-CIO Achievement in Labor award. The award presentation celebrated Schneider’s 26 years of committed union membership and his significant leadership contributions.

The award, presented by Indiana AFL-CIO President Brett Voorhies, celebrated Schneider’s 26 years of committed union membership and his significant leadership contributions and stands as a testament to Schneider’s persistent advocacy and the deep respect he has earned among his labor peers. The Indiana AFL-CIO, representing over 300,000 workers, chooses its honorees based on their contributions to the labor movement, and Schneider’s recognition highlights the impact one dedicated individual can have on the lives of many.

Schneider served in the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Army, retiring from the Indiana National Guard in 2008 after 23 years. He was a direct hire at ZID in 1998, where he spent his full FAA career. Schneider served on the NATCA Benefits Committee, NATCA Training Committee, and the NATCA Onboarding Committee. He taught Secretary/Treasurer Training, the National On-The-Job Training Instructor (OJTI) Training Cadre Class, and the Training Review Board Class. In addition to holding the position of ZID FacRep, Schneider served as one of the two Great Lakes Alternate Regional Vice Presidents (ARVP) to ensure all the members and FacReps of the Great Lakes Region receive the guidance, training, and support they need to continue to do the excellent work they do day in and day out.

“There’s nothing wrong with being a member that comes to work and goes home, but it can be so much more rewarding,” Schneider said in 2020 as part of a feature encouraging NATCA members to get involved in the Union. “I challenge you to this: just try NATCA in Washington, try CFS, go to a membership meeting, a solidarity event. Try to make your part of NATCA a little better. One person can make all the difference.”
