The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) today announced that General Vice President Sito Pantoja will replace retired IAM District 141 President Rich Delaney on the Board of Directors of United Continental Holdings (UCH), the parent company of United Airlines, effective March 1, 2016.

“I’d like to thank Brother Delaney for the time he’s represented IAM workers on United’s Board of Directors,” said General Vice President Pantoja. “I look forward to working with the Board to ensure that the long term interests of IAM members at the carrier are fully represented.”

“IAM members at United Airlines will be well served by General Vice President Sito Pantoja on UCH’s Board of Directors,” said District 141 President Mike Klemm. “Brother Pantoja was endorsed by the entire Executive Board of District Lodge 141, who directly represents IAM-represented employees at United Airlines.”

The IAM, pursuant to Part III, Section 8.1 of UCH’s certificate of incorporation, has the right to one board seat and at present the Board has not designated any committees upon which General Vice President Pantoja will serve.
