    But I only talk about it when others lie and spread misinformation. You were the one that brought the F/A's and the AFA-CWA into AA labor nego's thread not me.

    I hear ya. I get it.

    At the same time, I think there are s a very easy comparison to draw between the Title Groups at AA and DL FA’s. Both are seeking the best option when it comes to representation. It is also clear to me that both the Association at AA and the IAM at DL are not meeting those needs currently.

    Here in Germany there are also constantly negotiations between pilots and the airlines. :( This constantly eliminates flights. Probably there is this problem in many other countries also.

    parity? you mean the ratio of AMTs per plane?

    will the company go after fleet? what parity for fleet? delta/united fleet earn more per hour than i do and get bigger profit sharing checks. the twu represents southwest fleet and they earn what i earn and also get bigger profit sharing checks.

    you believe amfa had gotten southwest the highest wages because southwest fleet earns $15/hr and aa will do the same for you? the trade-off isn't that fleet will subsidize your dream of $60/hr, junior AMTs will subsidize that dream.

    i suppose if i had 35 years as an AMT and had no fear of getting laid-off...yes, let's try another union and maybe we'll get $60/hr because fleet holds us back.

    honestly, i wish you luck but i'm thinking many AMTs with 7-8 years believe that a vote to change unions is a vote to lose their job. i don't care if you have the major league baseball union representing you..if you ever end up getting a huge bump in pay, way more AMT work will be outsourced and there will be way less AMTs.

    just my opinion, like your opinion is that fleet holds you back from the land of milk & honey contract.

    Get a clue I’ve seen more AMT’s leave for better paying jobs than anytime in my career and this includes many with more than 5 or 10 years seniority. And I love in particular the ones that were just hired and leave right out of orientation.

    that's great...where are they going to?

    to airlines with a lower ratio of AMTs per plane? if they are going to ua/dl/southwest, fleet there either earns more than me or equal to me.

    my thought is assoc or amfa, the company is stingy..they don't want to compensate us.

    :D Ah. Great. So you guys don't have to worry about the $20M or a permanent Permanent Injunction. o_O Then AMFA should just ignore all that legal mumbo-jumbo they're upset about.

    True. In my hub, we had to hire again. FT and PT because we were very short. Mando almost every night for close out. Not a good thing when you cut too deep and don't hire in 8 years. But I digress..........

    OMG! It's so impressive that there are some posters that seem to work for 3 or 4 airlines at the same time. Talk about workaholics.

    Weez, you still on gag? Are you making goofy statements about amfa like 700 is?
    I see the iam spin doctor is now saying amfa members could get higher seniority and that 6 years of negotiations will be scrapped.

    Weez, just because amfa is doing great with the raid, shouldnt mean that you go back in the gutter with 700 and his lies.
    You may still get an iam gig since the ramp will still be association.

    Did you meet up with Josh?

    Do you think the delta ramp would be more interested in another big union or just stick with the iam perpetual campaign?
    It seems logical to hold onto the iam if you just want to use a union as opposed to becoming union.
