    Metal even AMFA is a business, however we control if we can get rid of the people in charge, if they piss the membership off. But they are still a business.

    Like I said, unions are a business. all of them. Members are like investors. But as far as the TWU is concerned, we haven't gotten too much of a return of investment for our dues.

    Oh yea. Every Union guy is nothing but a self absorbed scumbag in your mind. Not a single guy who’s ever been any type of Union rep has any honor or integrity. They’re all just looking for how much money they can make.

    Yea when I wore a pin I was just a greedy POS happy to be making $1000 before Taxes for the year.

    Wow you are phucking cynical man. Were you always this way?

    Actually, we have all noticed where the threshold is. Once a union member crosses over to the international, the tap dance starts. They can't screw up their gravy train toward retirement, so toe the international's line. They are taught how to address people who call them out. You know the standard chestnuts like you just used. Blame the membership, distract, change the subject - all classics. It's all you got. Very predictable...

    You have more say in your business than we have in our Association.

    No, the TWU has helped push me into that direction.

    Hey WeAAz, you want to here how many contracts we had shoved down our throats to save jobs? How many threats were made by TUL local presidents threatening their roll call vote?
    Many decades ago, layoffs were rampant in this industry in order to save the senior guys. But when the laid off returned to work, they enjoyed the benefits of those contracts.

    In hindsight I’m sure we all would have been much better off Eastern Airlining their asses.

    And I am thankful. Once I got over being butthurt the Teamsters were kicked out, and our situation with AMFA didn't turn into Northwest, they came through.

    Oh, you're right. Unions are a charity. They just give but don't take.
    I wonder why we pay union dues at all. It wouldn't be for bloated international salaries, would it?
