The union for air traffic controllers is endorsing President Obama's bid for a second term next year.
The National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA) said this week that it was "enthusiastically" backing Obama in the 2012 presidential election, even before it is clear whom he will be running against.
Officials with the union said that the Obama administration had been supportive of its causes.
“President Obama and Vice President Biden are fully committed to continuing to improve what is already the world’s safest and most efficient airspace system, and we stand with them,” NATCA President Paul Rinaldi said in a statement.
