Aircraft maint issues

  1. Yeah I was kind of hoping for a framed copy of the lawsuit. They gave out 3/8 drive Snap-on ratchets instead. I did not accept the ratchet but did eat some brisket. Pretty fed up with the whole thing. This has got to be the most dysfunctional Cluster?@#$ I`ve ever seen.

    Sarcasm, my friend. Trump doesn’t care about working man.

    Maybe he doesn't care much. But undoubtedly he cares more than the unions and the socialist politicians they support.

    Maybe we shouldn't take this thread down the political road...

    True but unions are political.
    Everytime an election comes the twu always recommends voting Democrat straight across the board
    Regardless where you live or what the agenda of the politician is. On the bright side at least we get to vote for our government leaders not like the association who are all appointed at the international level.

    Happy Memorial Day! Union brothers and sisters I would like to see the association and the company get back to the table. Threatening the company with a strike is a no win for either side. Negotiations need to resume with or without the mediator. I understand the medical for the IAM is very important, but I talk with a lot of my friends and all their premiums are going up. The pension is going in to default. I remember the IAM were pounding their chest on how bringing the Teamsters we would lose our pension. Guess what we are going to lose our pension. Most mechanics I speak with want a 401k. I want a matching of 12%.

    The company isn't going to just waltz back to the table. Not until something causes them to move. Who knows what that is.

    As far as the 401k plan, listen to the podcast, the company wants to reserve the right to amend the plan whenever whatever they want, it is in their proposal. Most likely to give you your match once a year, at the end of the year, thus you lose out on a ton of interest and they get it. This is what my spouse company does

    The 401k issue is big NO from me alone. The language and funding method is unacceptable.

    These are very intelligent trade offs to start with. Maybe for M&M some language can get tweaked. The 12% ask for ridding the Pension is not an over ask in my opinion. Matter fact I would ask for 15% and settle for no less than 12% matched.
    So are the biggest sticklers Scope, 401K (retirement), Pension and medical???
    Are the mechanics ok with the scope ask thus far?
    Hope you all can get back the table soon. Maybe time for the membership to apply some pressure to get them to move a bit. If you all remember it took AMFA to show some movement a while back in order to get us back to the table. And in the end the company also made some big movements to get it done. It might be better for the entire membership if the asso. was to be the first to move a little, then it would all be on the company. The NC would be better respected over movement than they currently are for holding their ground. The difference is, the company can hold out forever as it will cost them NOTHING to sit and wait, think about that guys. Good luck in obtaining an ILC/JCBA...

    Well, article 5 "definitions"
    Is completely missing. Most 401k language is ok, just they want to be able to change it as they want, anytime. Medical, no good, no verifying mechanism for rate changes, signing bonus way off, no improved profit sharing, no retro. And no... scope is no good, it will cost close to a thousand jobs of high seniority positions, move crews and avionics and.. they want "daily" checks done over seas, which we all know they can name a check anything they want, no matter what it includes. Then theres the vacation weeks, only 6, we should have 7. Oh, and let's not forget facilities and gse, the company wants to pretty much get rid of them. And they want to hire vendors for off airport stores/supply work..

    I'm pretty sure theres somethings I'm forgetting.. These are just off the top of my head..
