Unalaska Delta Western Unionization Ceretified PDF Print E-mail

    It’s official: Delta Western fuel supply workers in Unalaska are unionized. The National Labor Relations Board certified the workers’ vote to join the Inland Boatmen’s Union last week, according to an IBU statement.
    The workers had voted by an eight to 15 margin to join the union in early April. An NLRB representative oversaw the election.
    The next step will be to negotiate a contract for the workers. The IBU will head up that process.
    The road to unionizing began in February, when Delta Western workers walked off the job in
protest of alleged workplace mistreatment. They went on strike again in March and filed a federal complaint with the NLRB, saying their managers were using illegal methods to punish them for striking and to keep them from organizing.
    The group petitioned to join the IBU soon after. They’re now the only unionized Delta Western terminal in Alaska.
