Contract Talks Underway for 3,500 at Fort Rucker


New contract negotiations have begun for 3,500 IAM Local 2003 members employed by Army Fleet Support (AFS) at Fort Rucker in Daleville, AL.

Negotiations are moving forward on a new contract that will cover 3,500 members of IAM Local 2003 employed by Army Fleet Support (AFS) at Fort Rucker in Daleville, AL.

The base in southeast Alabama serves as the U.S. Army’s primary rotary wing flight training facility and has a well-deserved reputation for safety and professionalism. The IAM members there include helicopter maintenance and support personnel. Their current contract expires on April 28.

“We’re looking forward to negotiating a strong IAM contract that’s good for our members and the Wiregrass community as well as for AFS, the base and the warfighters we support,” said IAM Southern Territory General Vice President Mark Blondin, who attended the opening session. “We have a great Negotiating Committee that is well prepared and has the backing of the membership.”
