With over two decades of experience in the airline industry, Clacy’s background as a longtime trade unionist speaks for itself. He has worked in Maintenance, A/C Services and Ground Operations at multiple airlines including Pan Am, Western and PSA. Clacy spent nine years as a dedicated shop steward and has over 21 years under his belt as a Teamsters business agent. In that time, he has negotiated some of the strongest collective bargaining agreements in the industry.
Much of Clacy’s skills as an airline mechanic unionist come from on the ground experience. However, he was also the recipient of an AFL-CIO scholarship, an associate’s degree in labor studies, and attended a number of colleges including UC Berkley and the George Meany Institute for Labor Studies.
