Biographical / Historical

Eastern Air Lines was a major American airline from 1926 to 1991. Before its dissolution it was headquartered at Miami International Airport in an unincorporated area of Miami-Dade County, Florida. During the 1970s and through the 1980s, there were labor disputes within the Transports Workers Unions with disputed claims of fair pay and claims of back pay after Eastern Air Lines merge with various airlines, such as Caribair Air Lines. The Police Benevolent Association often is often at odds with its local union. This is due in part to local collective-bargaining with local precincts over state regulation and county regulations for proper retirement and benefits.
