Ken Diaz

United MEC President
Ken Diaz began his airline career in 1983 with People Express Airlines working in the Accounting Department and as a Flight Attendant. He continued his Flight Attendant career with Continental Airlines and Carnival Airlines just before being hired with United Airlines in June of 1998.

Shortly after 9/11 Ken became involved in lobbying Congress for mandatory Security Training for Flight Attendants. He became Government Affairs Chairperson for Newark, Council 6 shortly thereafter. He went on to become the Grievance Chairperson, as well as being elected the Local Executive Council 6 Secretary of Newark in 2005. 

After United made the decision to close the Newark domicile, Ken transferred to JFK. Ken then became trained as an EAP Representative and Occupational/Benefits Committee Member.  In February 2008, Ken was elected as Local Executive Council President for Council 5 and was elected for his second term of office in 2011. 

Ken’s deep-seated passion for the rights and advocacy of his Union Brothers and Sisters found him compelled to further serve the Membership by seeking election to the office of United MEC President in May of 2014. After his successful election as our MEC President, Ken continues serving the Membership in his second term as our United Master Executive Council President and additionally serves on the AFA International Organizing and Ethical Practices Committees.

Ken was a Member of our 2012 -2016 Negotiating Committee who successfully negotiated our Flight Attendant Agreement during Expedited Negotiations.
