Components to carriers

Supporting workers on the supply chain

The Components to carriers network is global, bringing together aviation, logistics and aerospace unions and activists. Its aim is to improve working conditions for all workers along the aeronautical supply chain.

This network will allow workers to better realise their collective power along global supply chains. Whether they’re making aircraft and engine parts, hauling components, carrying out aircraft maintenance, working in logistics or operating aircraft, activists are coordinating their collective power to:


  • share wins and best practice
  • foster solidarity
  • build joint strategies to grow worker power
  • map union strength in strategic locations
  • gather intelligence on global corporations and shifts in the supply chain 


This global initiative is supported by ITF and IndustriALL. Together, we represent over 50 million workers worldwide from the mining, energy, manufacturing and transport sectors. Like us, IndustriALL is committed to fighting for better working conditions and trade union rights around the world.
