Republicans and Unions
This video clip should be on a continuous loop in every NATCA local’s office throughout the country.
Forget Rick Santorum. Listen to the question. Listen to the crowd.
If you’re an air traffic controller and you’re voting for a Republican -- any Republican -- I have to question your intelligence. If you’re a union member and you’re voting for a Republican, I question your sanity.
Some of you may not remember when Federal employees were paid less than comparable private industry workers, but I do. Some of you may not remember when Federal job benefits were less than comparable private industry benefits, but I do. The only thing that changed that equation for air traffic controllers was NATCA.
