United Airlines'  labor woes continue as talks with International Brotherhood of Teamsters-represented aviation maintenance technicians and related workers stalled yesterday.

"Delta and American are setting the pace and United is dragging its feet," said Clacy Griswold, lead negotiator for the Teamsters. "Our hardworking aviation professionals deserve industry- leading pay and benefits and will settle for nothing less."

The union has been in negotiations with the company since November 2012 and under the guidance of a federal mediator sinceNovember 2013.

The company continues to trail the industry standard in compensation after having the most profitable quarters in its history.

"We hoped to see a change in the airline's attitude toward its workers under the new leadership of CEO Oscar Munoz, but that has yet to be seen," Griswold said.

The Teamsters Airline Division represents 9,000 aircraft maintenance technicians and related workers at United Airlines, and over 80,000 workers in the aviation industry.

Founded in 1903, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters represents 1.4 million hardworking men and women throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. Visit www.teamster.org for more information. Follow us on Twitter @Teamsters and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/teamsters.
