    The Philly deal I think their were TWU guys I guess feeling the water on representing fleet and some goons kicked their ass. Mysteriously things worked out between them later on

    I remember the TWU “stepping aside” (for lack of a better term), and there never being a vote. There are tons of posts about it on here if anyone wants to dig for them?

    No vote, $500,000 paid to TWU to walk away, fight was because TWU was a threat to IAM representation of the fleet service employees after the merger.

    I get sent news about quill scholarship, but nothing about contract negotiations.

    I’ve been reading the AA - IAM contract for AMTs. How disappointing, not a very good non bankruptcy contract. Very disturbing that these two unions who have negotiated contracts that are subpar on their own but now the 2 of them are negotiating a contract while having a divided membership (not one voice one union).

    If we ever get a new contract, I’m expecting the best contract ever, with the power of 2 unions, 35k members, AFL CIO and taking 4 years to negotiate.

    I remember some of that. And yes, some did get their jobs back. Just don't know if all did.
