More than 2,700 Fleet/Ramp Service workers for United/Continental Airlines have been assigned to newly-chartered Longhorn Local Lodge 811 in Houston, Texas. The new Local Lodge was chartered following the merger of Continental Airlines, Continental Micronesia and United Airlines and the IAM’s successful campaign to win representation rights for the combined airline’s Ramp/Fleet Service group.

“The IAM welcomes and congratulates the members of Local Lodge 811 on this historic event,” said Transportation GVP Robert Roach, Jr. “Future generations will honor the dedicated IAM supporters whose names are affixed upon the charter and remember the courage and perseverance it took to finally arrive at this day.”
