The International Brotherhood of Teamsters is gearing up to ask lawmakers to include in an upcoming economic stimulus bill a moratorium on the use of foreign repair stations by U.S. air carriers, according to the Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA). Such a moratorium, ARSA explained, could mean that β€œU.S. repair stations would almost certainly be hit by punitive reciprocal measures that would make it more difficult to serve foreign customers.” ARSA said that it β€œis doing what it can to defeat this proposal.”
