The Asso. screwed up big time. With the recent video of a sup or manager (I forget which) belittling the mechanic that wrote up a safety issue. It went viral and I believe the company has put said management on leave to further investigate. Again pathetic association, where was the countersuit??? This viral video just proves there was intimidation and heavy, heavy pressure on the mechanics to not write up aircraft, and this one was in fact a safety item. This mechanic was interviewed by a local news station as well. I am shocked that video has not made it here yet. I would post it but I not my position to do so, maybe if it was my airline. The absolute "no action" (countersuit included here) by this asso. is just sad and pathetic. It's time to move on to a new union for the mechanics.
