United Airlines mechanics escalate airport actions

Union-represented mechanics for Chicago-based carrier United Airlines (NYSE: UAL) said that have escalated their actions to pressure the company in their ongoing negotiations by hand-billing UAL customers inside and outside 12 major airports around the country.

The mechanics are represented by the US Teamsters Union.

UAL mechanics said they are informing the public that they may be forced to strike if the company refuses to keep its promise to provide a fair agreement that adequately compensates and protects these workers after years of concessions.

On Monday, hundreds of Teamsters participated in informational pickets at 10 US airports.

The Teamsters Airline Division represents about 80,000 workers in all segments of commercial aviation, including mechanics, pilots, and flight attendants.
