    American remembers Herb Kelleher

    CEO Doug Parker shared the following statement yesterday on the passing of Southwest Airlines co-founder Herb Kelleher: “On behalf of the entire American Airlines team, we take a deep breath and give long pause to remember and celebrate the many contributions Herb Kelleher made to our industry. Herb’s vision brought the freedom of travel to hundreds of millions of people, and his appetite for taking on any real or perceived battle was unmatched. His opponents often found that taking on Herb might mean a joke or prank would soon reveal itself, but it also signaled that Herb was likely well down the path to victory. His style presents the ultimate case study for airlines or any service company whereby if you take care of your people (now called "Team Members"), they will take care of your customers, which will take care of your shareholders. That simple yet profound way of leading continues to inspire us, and we aspire to honor Herb’s example. Today we lost an industry icon, a legend, and a friend whom we will never forget. Thank you, Herb, you made us all better.”


    They can sure peddle the BS!

    "CONTRACT NOW" for all "Team Members"!

    I find that level of naivete refreshing in someone your age. Contract Now, indeed. You know that will not happen until the company gets a contract that allows all positions (below the management level, of course) can be outsourced.:rolleyes:

    Ha ha. I strive to complete 8.5 hours. I strive to remove the human element from everything I do. Do my job, finish my task, and what happens after that is not my problem. What a shi*%y way to look at things.

    This management team got deals done with every union quickly but one. They gave the FAs a raise out of contract.
    And you all still think management is anti union/employee and that is why you don't have deal? The association is good at brainwashing you folks but not so good at negotiating a contract.

    Then if mgmt is so good why is it they dont want to give us a industry leading contract? Theyre content on not achieving synergies due to mgmt failure to negotiate an industry leading contract. Mgmt purposely waited long enough to get the NMB involved. Now w pilots n FAs contracts coming up soon n maintenance n fleet w no jcba its just gonna be a nightmare that may never end. Mgmt wants to gut cities n catering. Yet w low oil n possibly going lower mor profits yet those sleeze balls in dfw want to continue be greedy

    American Airlines Workers Industry Best Pay Rates Go into Effect

    November 9, 2016


    [​IMG]This month, approximately 30,000 ground workers at American Airlines will see their industry-leading wage rates reflected in their paychecks. The wage increases for the TWU/IAM Association represented workers will average approximately 22 percent. Mechanic and Related workers will surpass by three percent similarly classified workers at Delta Airlines. Fleet Service, Stores/Material Logistic Specialists and Maintenance Training Specialists’ wages will increase one percent ahead of their peers at United Airlines.

    “These industry-setting increases are the result of the Association Negotiating Committees’ hard work,” said Association Chairman Sito Pantoja and Vice Chairman Harry Lombardo. “These gains are only the beginning for our members as we continue to negotiate for improvements in all areas of our contracts.”

    In addition to the industry-best wage hikes, Association members will see improvements to their defined benefit and defined contribution pension plans.

    While these gains are the industry benchmark, they are only the first step in negotiations. The TWU-IAM Association Negotiating Committees are in ongoing talks with American Airlines to procure improvements in all areas of Association members’ contracts.

    The TWU-IAM Association is an affiliation between the Transport Workers Union and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM).

    You’re right that it is frustrating. We just came out of our 5 year Bankruptcy agreement (minus those raises) in September. The LAA FA’s voted no on their agreement and had one shoved down their throats anyway. Pilots took their deal cause they were smarter and knew they would lose more on the Arbitration agreement.

    All the UAL Unions after their Bankruptcy agreements went between 5 and 6 years to reach pre Bankruptcy deals. Most SWA Unions that I’m aware of went over 5 years and AMFA over there is coming up on 7 years.

    We started “official” JCBA Negotiations in December 2015 which makes that 3 years. Now the question is and I hope not, if the average is 5 years do we (or are they) going to make us sweat it out for another 2 years?
