    Robbed Again, Here at AA its has always been about the money, we'll get next time. Get the $$$ now. No matter how JOB Scope affects current and future employees. AA always lowers the Bar for the Industry. That is why for M&R it is time for us to get a Bargaining unit that will just represent US. NOT worry about dues and headcount like the TWU/IAM/IBT.

    I dont fault u sir. I wish u luck n hope it all works out. Its pretty sad that people look solely at money. I having been furloughed in mid 2000s n recalled forced me to wake up n that is what i tell people n i tell em "you must look at scope as its ur job security n future" " its easy for company to dangle carrot in ur face (ie..money)" but people dont want to listen. Its time we stop setting bar low. But its lil late im afraid

    Yes I agree on the money. Everytime a new proposal comes out most skip right over to the payscale section. After a contract is voted in then the devil comes out of the ground. This JCBA will be no different.

    1AA,, I agree that this JCBA is going to pass, I'm a NO just because, but many will want the $$$ and then say I didn't know they can do that? It has been this way forever. I hope that at your station you attempt to get the membership to concentrate on the full version. At least vote either for or against but don't just let whatever happen. Then WHINE for the next 5 yrs.

    Going out on a limb here I assume you are LUS, if you are here at AA maybe you can aide the AMFA organizers at your station to get the LUS guys to sign cards

    I think many will look at the money I know based on what I see it is improvements for sure in many areas not just wages.
    Is it IL no probably not but when it gets right down to it I and others just don’t trust these guys to go back and get a better deal
    Especially since it would take at least another year for that and that to me equates to a loss

    I think fleet passes 80%+.
    Mx will pass according to a poll by about 60%+. Doesnt mean people will be ecstatic.

    People are poor :( they need $ now. Until you allow yourself to truly vote on representation contractual work rules will continue to be decimated via your bosses, my two sense

    i respect your feelings, but me personally...i don't even need to review scope.

    usually, people vote their pocketbooks, i'm the same way on this contract. i find it chintzy at the most important levels, the 5% 401k auto is the most generous the company came up for laa.

    i can't get past the money. no vote.

    the CS scammers found out the 1929 stock market panic was for nothing. 64 CSO your regular shift over 26 weeks.

    I guess the selling of the contract started.
    They did not get anything new for us just bankruptcy reinstatements.
    My non-english speaking neighbor could have done way better.
    Samuelson if you reads these blogs. Go **** yourself and your thug acting ways....
    I feel better now.
