Air Traffic Controller Fired While In Hospital

September 17, 2009

A PATCO Air Traffic Controller who worked at Tyler, Texas was terminated by Robinson Aviation, Inc. (RVA) in July 2009 while still in the hospital recovering from an operation. This unbelievable action by the employer was totally unjustified, irresponsible, and will be challenged by the Union. The controller who is also the union facility representative at the tower, has since recovered from the operation, and is currently in good health.

PATCO has filed a formal grievance against the employer, but RVA has refused to accept the grievance. The Union has filed multiple Unfair Labor Practice (ULP) charges with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) against the employer.

Other options are being considered by the union in this wrongful termination.
