Airline workers with IAMAW District 141 are gathered in Las Vegas for the 2019 Committee Conference. Each year, the conference brings together elected union leadership from airports around the nation to network, share information, and celebrate the successes of the Machinists Union in commercial aviation.
This year the focus is on growing the union, both in terms of membership and industry impact. District 141 organizers and activists are leading two of the largest union organizing campaigns in the United States, at Delta and JetBlue Airlines.
Persistent advocacy and organizing from Machinists Union members have improved wages, working conditions and safety at all airlines – including non-union carriers like Delta and JetBlue.
