    Parker cares about himself , board of directors, and shareholders . The Association is his *****, and fixing to put it balls deep. You better as employees especially the mechanics look at hiring AMFA lawfirm to protect yourselves from both the company and the Association. Good Luck! And don't listen to you Can Fix Stupid! :)

    You literally have an Fleet AGC on this board bragging about how he hasn't seen the inside of a bin in years. He made sure to add plenty of "Lol's," 'cause apparently having out-of-touch reps is funny to him. Spoiler alert: It's not.

    You're not wrong. The difference is YOU are paying Samuelson & CO. They work for you.

    Isom and Parker have been 2 steps ahead all along. Samuelson played right into it.

    Really no info from this update. But according little timmy it ended abruptly, whatever that means, right?
    No further meetings set at this time is not good, although they did say they look forward to the NMB contacting them for further dates. Hey asso. maybe they were not so happy with the answers you morons provided. Did you guys forget to mention anything about "MOVEMENT???" Heloooo!!! Obviously something bothered them enough not to at least "look" at some further dates. Pathetic update once again from the asso.

    August 16, 2019

    The National Mediation Board (NMB) held separate meetings with TWU/IAM Association Leadership (first) and American Management (later) on Thursday in Washington D.C. The purpose of the meetings was for the three NMB Board Members to discuss the status of our negotiations with both parties. The Federal Mediators who attended our earlier negotiations were also present.

    Both parties were granted an opportunity to state the reasons they felt were preventing both sides from reaching an agreement. The Association, which was represented by Director Sito Pantoja and Vice Director Alex Garcia, told the Board it is American’s failure to return to the negotiating table that is preventing us from reaching an agreement. The Association also impressed on the Board that there are still five major issues that need to be resolved: Scope, Wages, Profit Sharing, Medical and Retirement. The Board Members asked follow-up questions about these open issues. Our responses made it crystal clear to the Board that we are willing to negotiate anytime, anywhere.

    The Association also made the Board aware of the Company’s blatant attempt to divide our members by spewing misinformation about the bargaining sessions on Jetnet.

    We expect the NMB Board Members to contact both parties next week with their plan for further negotiations.

    In other related news, Association Negotiation Committees along with TWU Local and IAM Lodge leadership also met in Washington D.C. to discuss Monday’s court decision, the subsequent court filing by American on Tuesday and the Association’s appeal filed on Wednesday. To be clear, we must comply with the orders of the court.

    Our discussions also reaffirmed that the court orders do not change the objectives of the negotiation committees to obtain the best contract in the industry. After years of sacrifices, an industry leading contract has been earned – and also promised by top American executives.

    Please Post on All TWU- IAM Bulletin Boards

    Just a FYI...I have it from an extremely reliable source, in the latest Association Update, they left out a “bunch” of information...no surprise I know...it will come out.
    Maybe the Warriors can do one of their “drive by’s” and finish it.

    The Association also made the Board aware of the Company’s blatant attempt to divide our members by spewing misinformation about the bargaining sessions on Jetnet.

    Am I the only one that views this position as hypocrisy?

    The Association requested that the company keep negotiation details private and away from the membership. Even in this update the Association provides no details or position statements on the listed open items left to negotiate. The company gets frustrated and uses Jetnet to communicate their table position.

    Association for awhile now and even in current update claims the company is spewing misinformation yet they don’t give us the Association position. Nor do they detail what part of company communications is misinformation.

    Standing on the street corner with a bull horn screaming the company is lying while not providing detailed truth or rebuttal to company information is patently a common tactic of someone with something to hide.

    Maybe I missed something
    Does any reader here have details of the Association table position that might prove the company is dishonest?

    Don’t be hoodwinked by union rhetoric
    Demand the truth, with facts and details

    They have to keep appearances.

    Aside from your points, I'm sure they weren't happy with the "drop dead" letter either.

    At this point, their releases amount to talking to their base. The reality of the meeting will be felt when the NMB announces if there are any dates to be scheduled.

    The reality is that the contempt hearing and probable fine will dictate the course of these negotiations moving forward. They will portray themselves as the tough guys while later blaming the Executives, "corrupt" Judges and "biased" Mediators.

    From today’s update about the NMB meeting it’s clear this Ass still has no clue how to negotiate.
    They mention the 5 issues that remain unresolved.
    Hey hate to tell you they are resolved as far as the companies position is.
    The union needs to figure out how to tweak those parts of the offer and stop grandstanding on we won’t move off scope and insurance and such things.

    It’s just as I predicted nothing will change with these guys and the court orders and NMB meeting.
    Morons we are dealing with morons

    Well I can honestly say through our 7 years of negotiations AMFA kept us informed what the company wanted and what our counter offers were.it was only in the last three years of the 7, that SWA basically started providing their notes through our Emails and SWAlife to try to drive a wedge between the union and it's members. And people were getting pissed off including me. But eventually it came to a conclusion. So you can take a so so deal and then get rid of them. Just like us and United three times.

    You realize some of these guys were telling their Members the BK threat in 2011 was fake and we should call their bluff during those mediated negotiations. (Even the Mediators said BK was probable) They also advocated to vote no on a BK contract because the Company would never abrogate their current CBA.

    This current trajectory shouldn't a surprise to anyone, least of all Maintenance guys.
