Atlantic Aviation Employees Free from Unwanted Union after IAM Flies Away to Avoid Vote

Atlantic Aviation workers had filed for vote to remove unpopular IAM union from workplace

Atlantic Aviation PNE, Inc. employee Tiffany Lipyanic and her coworkers have won their effort to free themselves from unwanted union monopoly “representation.” After the employees filed a request for a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) decertification election to end the union’s monopoly bargaining powers over all workers at the Atlantic Aviation facility at Philadelphia Northeast Airport, International Association of Machinists (IAM) union officials abandoned their “representation” rather than face an overwhelming vote against the union.

“The Foundation is happy to have helped the workers at Atlantic Aviation to exercise their right to free themselves of a union they oppose. But to better protect all workers’ freedom of association, Pennsylvania needs a Right to Work law on the books,” commented National Right to Work Foundation President Mark Mix.

“Under the protection of a Right to Work law each individual worker can decide whether or not to join or financially support a labor union, instead of current law which empowers union bosses to use their monopoly bargaining status to force workers to pay up or be fired,” Mix added.
