FAA Controllers in Alaska, Virginia Join NATCA

Some 150 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) employees have a voice on the job after recently voting to join the National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA). The air traffic control specialists are assigned to National Flight Services operations in Alaska and the weather unit of the Air Traffic Control System Command Center in Herndon, Va.

These employees previously were represented by the National Association of Air Traffic Specialists (NAATS). In 2005, NAATS represented more than 2,000 air traffic controllers, but the FAA contracted out the work of all the union members except for these 150.
