    Company was willing to match UAL's 7 weeks, but then we would have to match their pay vs match SWA plus a buck, and settle for 6 weeks vacation. According to Shiable the SWA pay plus a buck wins because of the $16,000 pay difference - pretty much a no brainer. Evidently Robert Isom has been involved this week via the phone to move things along as they continue to talk today.

    They are also pursuing a larger signing bonus, that would be more in line with the value of retro.

    Thats not true, at least not for fleet. The only thing on the table, and already agreed to was full retro....at least for fleet. Gosh i hope you are right but if they already agreed to retro in fleet then its likely in Mx.

    And btw, for most iam fleet, the signing bonus of $6,000 would be more than full retro.
    The first year retro was only a 1% imputation. And for me at top out is close to $5,000. For someone who only been working a couple years at lower wages, its about $500.

    I know people like the sound of full retro but its a walk back from the jetnet proposal and saves the company millions. The $6000 was worth more.

    This is the first post bankruptcy contract. We will hit the ground running for the next contract.

    C'Mon. They hired around 200 between February and August, which is the period of time in question.

    There wasn't an issue prior to that or after that. The Association didn't use staffing levels as a defense either.

    Wow such optimism that we may get a TA.
    Sorry been fooled to many times.
    Don’t see this happening and even if true the IAM or such will get hung up on something stupid and refuse to put it out for vote.
    So I say everybody just calm down we are not even close

    I think that United AMTs have 7 weeks, not sure about the other carriers.
