Oscar Munoz
Chief Executive Officer United Airlines, Inc. 233 S. Wacker Drive Chicago, IL 60606

Dear Mr. Munoz:

We are writing to express our support for United Airlines catering workers’ unionization effort with UNITE HERE. These workers have filed for an election with the National Mediation Board with a strong majority.

Under your leadership, United has built positive labor relations. This is an important opportunity to lift up thousands of United’s lowest paid employees. United’s 75,000 unionized workers stand in solidarity with United’s catering employees and are encouraging them to vote yes for UNITE HERE.

We expect United will stay clear of any interference in these workers’ right to vote on representation. We look forward to welcoming their voices to the union employees at United and continuing to promote the positive labor relations at United.
