American Aviation Labor Alliance

American Aviation Labor Alliance (AALA)

The American Aviation Labor Alliance (AALA) is a formal partnership of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT), the Transport Workers Union (TWU) and the Coalition of Airline Pilots Association (CAPA), which together represent a combined total of more than 140,000 aviation workers. The AALA is a combined and coordinated lobbying effort on airline safety and security.

The new alliance is significant because the participating unions are affiliated with different labor federations or are independent, and they are joining forces to influence labor issues such as the FAA Reauthorization bill and bankruptcy reform that affect their members and the airline industry as a whole. The AALA will continue to build alliances with other labor organizations in the future.
