    No sir. Wrong. If the mechanics collect enough cards, (which they have to do to have an election) Then there would be an election to have and on that election ballots would be AMFA, Asso., no union and write-in. Trust me, the asso., nor TWU or IAM will call for any election all on their own just to have an election. There would have to be cards collected to trigger an election. Whatever union that would be that collects enough cards, that said union would be on the ballots along with the other options.

    Stop the scare tactics NYer. It's NOT a given. They won't have to write-in a union by 50% because if they collect cards for say AMFA, then AMFA will be one of the choices. There has to a card collection in order to trigger an election, hellooooo.

    The only way by 2019 X-mas will be if the judge forces a vote or the asso. gets really scared of a fine and they agree to bring it out. However, that doesn't guarantee a yes vote either, just that there will be a vote if triggered either way.

    Let me update you guys on the AMFA card drive at AA.

    There isn't one.

    Why all the what if chatter? When someone can positively come up with a way to get the IAM guys and Title 2 guys to sign cards for replacement of our current representation then a card drive will have a better chance on succeeding. Until then it's all a pipe dream.

    Swampy I have to admit AMFA proved me wrong, and that's because we do not have the Northwest AMFA. We control AMFA, if you guys want to control your own destiny, make the change.

    They're in the process of changing those rules, the "straw man" will be eliminated and another union will not be on the ballot. It would only include the incumbent, no union and a write-in option.

    I know. That's why I will correct him. He's on a mission just like the others that have tried.
    If I were fleet I would want you mechanics to split form the asso. either. Where else would I get my bumps in pay, bene's, and QOL issues if there are no mechanics in this fleet mainly contract, to take concessions so myself and all my fellow fleet boys can increase ours???

    Not saying here that there is a crd drive. Also not saying that there is not. I do know of some AA mechanics are in fact getting ready and even two are starting to collect. We will all know when the full blown card drive in in action.
    You ask why 1AA? It would be way better to prepare and be ready, than to sit and miss the boat again on a whim. PRO-active...

    You must have just missed my first sentence by accident. IF any union collects enough cards, that said union will be on the ballot, period. Stop trying to spread misinformation. We could care less of the straw man issue until it is brought into law by NMB.

    That's not how the proposed rule change reads. There choice of a new union would be write-in only. The decertification of a union, under the RLA, Would no longer have the choice of the straw man.

    No drive going on. The AMP drive fizzled out because we underestimated the USAIR guys interest and as usual the Title 2 guys are in the wind. Many guy that signed in the past refused for several reasons. The most common reason was we are so close to a JCBA and they feel a drive would delay and reset negotiations from the beginning. So now how close are we? Since then our contract became amenable and the company filed for mediation the day after it did. Mediation was slower than negotiations were before. Now the company has sued the association and a TRO has been issued due to an alleged job action from certain stations on certain shifts. We are further apart now than we were last year when the excuses for not signing cards were used. Like I said there is currently no AMFA card drive and the AMP drive ended.

    It is going to take a younger generation to step up and participate, not just sign a card.
