IAM Air Transport Territory General Vice President Richie Johnsen

Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our Service & Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.

Atlantic Aviation workers at the Aspen/Pitkin County Airport voted overwhelmingly to join the Machinists (IAM). Approximately 33 workers who handle ground operations voted in the election. The workers are focused on scheduling and hours worked issues.

“This decision reflects the dedication and determination of these experienced aviation workers to secure better working conditions and fair treatment,” said IAM Air Transport Territory General Vice President Richie Johnsen. “By joining the IAM, these workers have taken a bold step towards safeguarding their rights and ensuring a brighter future for themselves and their families. I want to thank District 141 for their leadership in this organizing victory.”
