Welcome to the UALPAPAE Unit 1 Web Site!
Air Line Pilots Association Professional & Administrative Employees (UALPAPAE)
Our Legacy: As Unit 1 members, we are part of a rich legacy of trade unionism. Our founding and succeeding members have fought over the years to secure the work rules and benefits we now enjoy. Like union members everywhere, we know these benefits are not a gift and should not be taken for granted. Our current contract is the result of the collective goals and sacrifices of successive groups of members to secure fair and equitable work rules and benefits. Our efforts today build on that foundation
What is our Union? It is a Union that's nearly 60 years old, born out of the desires of its founding members not to be "pushed." It's a Union whose founding members were concerned about fought for, and collectively bargained for enforceable work rules, company-paid health insurance, stable retirement benefits, and a fair, set pay scale. It's a Union whose members have held to a steadfast belief in traditional trade unionism and the power of collective bargaining. It's a Union whose members will not back down when faced with a fight, but who are wise enough to know the difference between when to fight and when to work together for the mutual benefit of ALPA and Unit 1. It's a Union whose members are professional, dedicated and committed to success. Itâ€™s a Union who can rely on over half a century of knowing what constitutes fair and just treatment in the workplace. It is a Union of members who take comfort in the fact that when the time comes to close ranks and look to the right and to the left that their colleagues will be close at hand. It's you and it's me. It's Unit 1.
