    Back in the late 80's early 90's we had a vote where we voted at the local, I cannot remember if it was a contract
    vote or local elections. Back then Local 514 was a single building & the membership was larger, the voting went
    ok but the parking was a nightmare. It might have been the contract that the 12 year top out was abolished with
    the bumps & leaps. I know that sounds crazy to anyone not with LAA at the time, but we still joke about the terminology
    that was used in that contract. If anyone can remember the reason for the one-day voting at the local let us know.

    We at least fleet wise been told a no vote is a no vote. No show vote is not considered.

    Swamt i feel the worse is yet to come. Just a matter of how bad itll be. The old saying...if its too good to be true then it must not be true

    Here is something that is not a rumor.
    Our bonus was going to be 12k, but Samuelson Alex and GP negotiated for the injunction to go away and use half of the bonus the co was willing to give..
    This leak came from the company...

    you know, not to ass kiss you mechanics, but I know your nature is to help, and to fix things. And that's why I knew the ruling by the judge was not well researched or informed, but Phat Fug, who wasn' t replaced and begs everyone to do their job led to Judge, who based his decisions based on a lone idiot and phat fugs performance. which, Doug took advantage of the mechanics have saved the operation more than anyone on the ramp, cockpit, management includeded. LAA was great when it run right with a lot help from bottom up. Now that it is run completely top down, its an operation disaster, but since fares now keep up with inflation, it hides the deficiency. My belief is Trumka is a sociopath, and is terroizing the Twu. And Doug's got to put an end to keeping everyone divided, because it does not work to his favor operationally .Twu just has non educated people leading us.

    While not affiliated, the Teamsters approximately 2 years ago had a contract vote where only 44% turned out and the union has a clause that allows them to ratify the agreement do to low participation...
