    Whats the point of saving future jobs that very well may not exist in another decade anyway? Everything below the wing on the ramp (Sans MX) could be automated right now with current tech.

    Probably because they have nothing to bring. Eventually the mediator will force them to bring something to a T/A just like us Swampy. The guys better pay attention or they might get a crappy deal voted in. Best to vote it down if it sucks, and send them back to the table.

    The AMTs bragged about sabotaging the airlines performance in a doc on YouTube called the battle for eastern airlines

    Just think they turned down a contract that was better then AA/TWU contract.

    Ask yourself why is the TWU and IAM are so scared to post what they are asking the company to give us. Ask yourself why the TWU didnt make BOTH sides equal when the company gave us the money. Why are we in a ASS. with another union on the same floor. Where one side has MORE than the other. Ask yourself why did they give a MORON like GP a position on the International. Ask yourself why they found it ok to form the ASS without a vote.
    The answer is right on this site. It because we are stupid and keep putting these same idiots in office. If we cant get rid of the TWU. Why not start a drive to removed ALL of them from office. Every one of them. WAKE UP. ITS TIME.

    Could not agree more. Just don't think it is even possible now, but I would support, yet again, another drive. Just not sure if the membership has really had enough yet.

    I don’t trust my union to do the right thing. US Airways was the only union to have retro give backs. I have 6 years left, I want our young technicians to get paid but most importantly have jobs. I personally feel that this association is not looking out for our best interest.

    The problem is Matt is becomes part of money grab for dues money, and the rest is history.

    Yes since the bus drivers in New York decides our international. And that’s a joke also with a line man president of the aviation division. We amt must be the laughing stock of the major us airlines without our own maintenance union. Even delta mechanics must be laughing to the bank better pay and benefits then we do and no union dues. Come on aa amts wake up sign the amp cards lets get a maintenance union that we control. Not some yahoo from new York and a united board member

    The TWU does such a good job of representing the bus and rail division, many mechanics work there and treat AA as the part time job.

    Play by Play how SWA did it guys.
    Just keep working like we always do fellas. Be compliant, follow the books, and never take a shortcut to get an a/c to the gate for service. IT's not worth your licence guys. Stay strong, stay united, and by all means stay compliant...

    I really didn't think there was any job action. I believe it's a company tactic right after talks stopped. This is probably the next step AA took to protect themselves for any action coming down the road. So if a job action should arise since negotiations are not moving favorably the company just covered that angle. The association is not smart enough to counter the company.

    Look guys, it's not a job action if you are working like we are suppose to. I could care less what the co. WANTS to call it. Legit write ups, per MPM SRM and MM and other documents is not a job action, it is mechanics doing their jobs and keeping the public safe. I agree with you 100%, I too do not think there is any job action. Don't worry about any kind of injunction or order from any Judge. That Judge will have NOTHING to say or do as far as stopping the mechanics from doing their "LEGAL" jobs period. FAA will stop all that crap with one phone call.
    SWA did it to us and our mechanics just kept on writing up legit write ups and no one, I mean no one was punished, suspended, intimidated or fired for doing so and the cancellations continued even after the co filed because they were and still are legit write ups to this day.
    The co. is trying to intimidate right now just before the busy summer travel season. If you guys had a real union, one of your officers should have by now been on the phone with the FAA about this intimidation and threats, it will stop in a heartbeat, I guarantee you this. Never be afraid to make that call, you will be covered and protected under the whistleblower laws. Good luck fellas, I hope you get your long awaited ILC soon.
    Stay tuned our results will be out after about another hour on our new offer to us.

    Every news article and video I have saw throughout this morning at the end of all of them compare this issue with AA, with the SWA issue when they sued us over what they THOUGHT was a job action and it all backfired on them because they were all legit write ups...
