General Vice President Sito Pantoja issued the following comment about National Aviation Day:
“Whether you work on the ground or in the cabin, being part of the United States aviation industry is something we can all be proud of. Personally, being an IAM-represented Aircraft Mechanic is a source of immense pride for me.
Through our continued solidarity and common purpose, we will pave the way for a new generation of US aviation workers to carry the torch into the future and live the American Dream. Please have a safe and happy National Aviation Day.”
The International Association for Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) is the world’s largest aviation union. It represents airline and aviation service company employees in every classification on the ground and in the air, as well as aircraft manufacturing employees.
