NATCA’s BOTG Program Gears Up for 2024 Election Cycle

NATCA’s Boots On The Ground (BOTG) program, a cornerstone of the Union’s legislative endeavors, continues to make strides as it gears up for the 2024 election cycle.

BOTG and Retired Active NATCA Volunteers (RNAV) member Allen Fritz shared his experience participating in this critical program. “Working through the COVID-impacted 2020 BOTG campaign and then the more conventional 2022 BOTG efforts has broadened my understanding of Pennsylvania Labor’s political organization and its key leaders across the state,” Fritz said. “To say that I had a hand in the connections that NATCA has uniquely fostered with so many of our U.S. Representatives is a point of great pride for me — not personal pride, but Union-pride.

“That I was, during a 30-year career, and will remain, part of a union oriented toward elevating our membership in ways that many of us overlook. NATCA has rooted me in labor activism and provided an example of how to do labor political activism and do it well. There is no better proving ground for me than the BOTG 2024 campaign in Pennsylvania.”

Interested candidates are urged to submit their applications by March 8, with inquiries directed to National Legislative Committee Chair David Skarphol or BOTG 2024 Project Manager Tom Thompson. If you are selected to participate you will be contacted by Tom Thompson with further instruction no later than May 31, 2024.
