The Brotherhood are restless. Hundreds of the 9,000 mechanics who belong to the International Brotherhood of Teamstersunion and work at United Airlines showed up today at the carrier's annual shareholders meeting in Chicago for what was described as "a rally."
The mechanics said they wanted to "warn investors and customers of problems at the airline." Many of those investors at the annual meeting no doubt already knew that United came in last among legacy carriers in the latest J.D. Power Customer Satisfaction Survey released last month.
