    One thing I don’t understand is all this talk about slowdown and such things and in the same breath others talk about how bad we are and service and such.
    Well we are only as good as those who work here to service our customers.
    Sure we can blame our management for things but if we don’t do our absolute best for our customers then we are just hurting ourselves
    We should strive everyday to improve our performance despite all our ongoing issues
    Just my opinion

    After reading this, I’m more upset at the association then normal. We have a crusader using AA mechs as his flag to fight corporate America.

    So the Association is turning down best contract in the industry for a greater fight, while at the same time not giving us any choice in representation or vote on contract, even after 16 YEARS of concessions to get AA into its current situation and now the association is keeping us from sharing in the gains of AA.

    Here’s something else to ponder, even if TWU agrees to scope, will IAM agree to healthcare and pension.

    WTF

    That was actually just a question, but I see where you’re coming from.

    Ahhhhhh, too bad. He pushed us back in negotiations with his outburst. Everyone was watching. It looked like a thug threatening a executive who took down AMFA at NWA. A time and a place is appropriate for that type of verbal engagement. That was not. He should have chewed him out with no video present. Sadly he speaks only for a few. Many of us want that ILC that was promised. Just like we will never lose money again. That does not necessarily mean we will get part of the pie. Well demonstrated by the companies position on outsourcing, reducing head count and compensation. In negotiations you need to keep a clear head and stay focused even though you think your getting screwed. That's why its called negotiations. Even though the cards are stacked against us in the legal avenues of negotiations that is what we are currently engaged in. Would you be happier if Samuelson and other union officers showed up at the next town hall with baseball bats?

    I wonder why the anti SA hangar people don’t complain about LHR and CDG AA mechanics doing work in those stations! Is it because a hangar is involved and once again the OH base is threatened? I haven’t heard any complaints about mechanics doing line work in many different stations in the AA system. This is only about a HANGAR that threatens the OH base work.

    You know what would be hysterical? if the company said they will no longer offshore work, but bring it back to the states and have Timco , or Haeco or any other CO do the work.
    Wouldn’t that be funny?

    Yes. So the ASSociation is crying foul on the offshoring. So the company brings work to the states but not AA. Who do they cry to next?

    Because Parisians and Londoners are usually white, and work done in Europe doesn’t carry the same stigma that work done in Latin America does.
