    Not really Kev. There are messages in some of my postings. Some may have went right over most heads.

    IF these are legit write-ups, there is NOTHING a Judge can do. Now if it is more leaning towards the refusal of O/T and not working a/c might be a different story. However, usually when it is the later, a Judge would have chimed in by now, the fact that AA has to "request" for further action tells me there may not be enough evidence to trigger the order. As we all know through history, the warmer months, spring break, then summer months we all take more time off and do less O/T as we get more busy with family and friends outside of work, therefore the O/T sign ups get less and less. Especially in Texas when it just gets hotter and hotter, screw that O/T.

    Well, there you have it. Must have been about the refusal of O/T and refusal to work on the broke airplanes. No way in hell the Judge would tell a/c mechanics to quite the write-ups of safety.
    But before I fully agree, I would like to read the order, any links? The language will reveal what it's all about.
    Next question, what took so long to get the order? And why did it take AA a second request to get the said order??

    Both points above are correct. With an arbitrator he/she will look at, you know who, SWA, because the company used SWA/AMFA agreement to offer a match for the AA mechanics in wages. By doing so, now an arbitrator would compare all the other info about SWA to use for comparo's such as outsourcing numbers, international/domestic, a/c to mechanic ratios, etc... Be careful wishing for arbitration. A negotiated deal would be much, much better deal.
    Our numbers are more like 758 aircraft to 2518 mechanics as of 6-14-19. Last mechanic hired was 12, 2018. More new hires coming in 2019 and 2020.
    Naturally you guys would need way more than us, but more than likely not nearly the numbers you have today IF an arbitrator was use the SWA comparo's numbers. Just saying.

    Yet you still have those who believe they are going to come out ahead. The ASSociation is painting themselves into a corner with the escape route shrinking by the day. GP and the big mouth are going to continue to preach their no concessions dream at the expense of the members. They need to fix the language regarding 401k and medical because the scope will be settled in the company’s favor should a deal ever be forced on us. I doubt we will ever be released to self help.

    I like the judge ruling aircraft leaving at 7a can’t break. When they do call the judge to sign it off what a joke . And where is the counter suit by the association

    Under the arbitration process, assuming both parties agree, an arbitrator can only side 'in whole' with the company proposal or the union proposal, as you know. Can't cherry pick, it's an 'either/or'.
    That said, obviously you are correct that the arbitrator will compare industry patterns but not sure how that would help convince him/her to side with the union when the company has made sure that it is far ahead of the patterns on scope, wages, and most everything else, right?

    My guess is that the judge wanted to hear a brief first. Thus, he ordered 2 mid June settlement meetings. I can't be sure of the dates but I'll assume the first one didn't go too well. Anybody's guess as to why. And, like the NMB, the Judge must have seen an unbending nature by the union even among analytics that don't lie. Thus, a temporary injunction with the idea that the company will win its trial the first week of July. In cliff note fashion, the union showed defiance and pissed off the Judge. This union has been pretty good at pissing off institutions. Pissing off the NMB, Company, and now a Judge.

    I would check out the imposed terms at NWA as a jump off point.
