    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.

    Remember the change of contol arbitration thought it was a slam dunk but the company outsmarted your union same chit here.The union may be forced into bending now or get slammed with monetary damages

    I’m guessing AA got the numbers they wanted in bankruptcy. AA just called for 50 more mechanics for Tulsa over the past 2 weeks, and that’s on top of the 35 AA called for Tulsa since the beginning of the year.

    I personally don’t think Tulsa or line stations are in danger as we didn’t lose it in BK. Seems like we lose heads during recessions or other unforeseen events effecting travel. No contract will be signed that doesn’t give the company the ability to lay-off when necessary. I don’t think SWA or Delta has had as many layoffs as AA, but then again SWA or Delta doesn’t have the bloated work force we have either.

    I believe he was told to clam up since the company is using these forums to prove their case on the injunction for the alleged job action.
    Did anyone notice after the Samuelson outburst the company filed the injunction and used some of the posters own words in the filing? Lately nothing coming from the big mouth leader. It's been civil from the association end. The association knows the courts can slap a fine on the unions if violations continue. Not hard to prove since the company already has the judge on their side. This is new territory for the association. Hit them where it hurts. $$$$$$$
    I'm wondering if a fine is enforced which union will pay it? Which union will give in and trade a fine for concessions? The APA did it after they got nailed for a illegal sickout by the courts.
