It's all inclusive. Get with th times.
And this is a mechanics thread, NOT fleet or bag smashers right weez???
Interesting. Of course they are willing to throw a bunch of money at ya. What will that end up costing the membership is the real question. I know you indicated "grapevine" but we all know good and well how they usually come out, mostly true. This also confirms the ask from the union went way up and even over the 7% above. just hope you guys don't have to give up the farm to get there. Good luck fellas.
The Southwest Airlines Mechanic (Swamp) who posts here has chosen to appoint himself the White Night defender to protect the American Airlines Mechanics against little old me and my opinions and the things I share to those people (Whether they like it or not) who work for the same Company and are in the same Union as me.
I personally (except Buck) am pretty well sure the people that are left reading here don’t want to read “daily” all the SWA back and forths when they can go over to the SWA thread and read or contribute for themselves? (Don’t think they’re Airline Forums Handicapped?)
Swamp had an agenda (AMFA) to sell here to another Company’s (A competitors) Employees and he’s upset that I may have shown a spotlight on that agenda.
Notice many posters here are gone. Time I finally learn to pay attention to all the individuals I have on the ignore feature.
That’s not what the Association update claims. But I have heard that you guys are further along currently on Scope now.
I think we were put on the back burner to take care of some of your issues and that’s why you’re ahead this time? (It goes back and forth)
The separate contracts basically disappeared with the bankruptcy, as well as the ability of the TWU to have any function
outside of the existing contract, except contract maintenance. Look at the negotiations, the Local TWU presidents are
not allowed to participate in negotiations. It is only the NMB Mediators and the Associations.
"Company negotiators made it as clear as they could – they want us to concede the work we do. Their proposals and positions at the bargaining table attack every Association classification. They want to eliminate massive numbers of jobs in overhaul maintenance, increase the amount of line maintenance that can be performed by others internationally, decimate the skill and amount of facilities maintenance performed in-house, and vendor out any Fleet work they see fit. Every classification is affected by these draconian Company proposals."
The Mechanics are part of Title 1 of the TWU Title System, Overhaul Maintenance which use to include The "A&P Mechanics" both Line and Light and Heavy Maintenence in Tulsa and DWH, and Charlotte. There are Overhaul Mechanics and then Welders a variety of Machinists and their support, such as Blasting Machine Operators and Cleaning etc...Title II which is Facilities Maintenance and there are various Journeymen and their support. So a variety of "types" could be affected when the term Overhaul Maintenance is used.
If the company needs more A&P Mechanics, any one of the above could fall victim to an adjustment to headcount.
So basically if you don't have an A&P you might not have a job. Or the company has the right to contract that out, and in the process depending on what American choose to do. Make all that separate of tech ops by making that a separate company and they become non union contractors. Or they just close that part and contract it out. If the membership accepted that scope change. That would explain the large amount of cash they are proposing.
Wow! You really are a dumb a$$. get a clue dude...
Really? You got to be kidding me??
You should use this service WN offers.
Since I am not thinking highly of myself, I will just say it is my position that any Aviation Mechanic is invited to participate in this forum as my guest, since I am a contributing member.
This also means that the forum is open to the public.
Buck the Moderators have informed multiple times that anyone can post anywhere they want on the boards. That means if a Burger King fry Chef came on and wanted to talk to any of us he or she wouldn’t be restricted to do so.
Anyway I’ve said my peace on that guy and some others that enough is enough and I’m going to try to not be tempted to peak when someone posts who now is on my ignore list.
BTW any time you guys talk AMT technology I steer very clear and stay in my lane. That’s not my area of experience and I wouldn’t even consider stepping in that shop.
Thank God! About time...
We all know it won't last though.
