American Made, Union Built!

Welcome to Machinists and Aerospace Workers LL44, Decatur AL.

We are the world’s most experienced rocket builders with more than 120 consecutive launches and a 100% mission success rate. Our workers bring the utmost precision, passion and purpose to one of the most technically complex, critical American needs: affordable, reliable access to space.

Why a Union? By forming a union, workers provide themselves with the opportunity to secure a voice in their workplace and ensure justice on the job. Union members are able to sit down with management as equals and bargain for better workplace conditions. For some, that might be higher wages and better benefits. For others it might be job security or fair treatment. Regardless of your specific needs, the union is here to help.

WHY UNION?
For more than 120 years, unions have fought for workers’ rights and the benefits so often taken for granted. Benefits like sick pay, leaves of absence, bereavement leave, holidays, vacations, retirement security and healthcare.
