    And your point is?
    Lets just cut the BS and say that the company bumps its profit forecast up another $500 million. Are you saying it wont be greedy and it will grow a heart and propose more to us?

    Under the current TWU contract all 151 Members would have rights to either chose to fill vacancies or bump by juniority. Even the bottom 26 would probably be given an opportunity to work in either DFW or MIA continuing their PT status.

    But IMO the Company is not going to close STL if under the next agreement they may have to only reopen it again. It doesn’t make sense even without the bad blood it would cause. (Cue Tim or Josh now)

    Alright Tim you win. I’m ready to accept what your Daddy Jerry is offering. Just want to clarify a few items if you would be so kind?

    How much exactly will I be making in wages on DOS?
    What will be the percentage yearly increases?
    Will it be a 5 year deal and will we have any early openers?
    Will there be an industry reset if Delta or United leapfrog us?
    How much will my Medical be and what is the percentage the Company can raise it yearly?
    Will the Association be able to audit the Company’s medical expenditures?
    What will the Part Time cap be?
    Will I be Full Time protected in my City?
    Did the Company agree to Penalty Hours or Easy hours?
    What about the language as far as when we go to lunch?
    Can I still walk for lunch on my 6th hour?
    What will the Scope be like as far as Station Staffing?

    Tim please just make this easier and post a PDF with all the details and I’ll be ready to sign on the dotted line at the end of the week.

    Companies don’t have hearts. People who work for Companies have hearts.

    Anyway I could care less about any of their hearts actually.

    BTW individually I never said what they were offering is greedy at least to me.

    But of course they will tweak and up the offer where needed. Just when is the big question?

    Who would not take him seriously. I mean he has said more times than not that credibility is the most important thing in the World to him.

    You're entitled to your opinion. Everybody has one. Some wrong!

    Actually in Maintenance and Related it’s the TWU who is being held hostage to the IAM Medical since you view it that way. They have way better benefits than we have.

    You don’t think the TWU wouldn’t just LOVE to have all those benefits?

    Why would either of the National offices of the IAM or TWU give a damn about that Medical? Those guys make money off of dues, not how much we pay in Medical.

    You guys are holding Sito hostage from getting a raise with your insistence to be inflexible on Scope. You really should relent now. Don’t you think enough is enough already?

    It was invested in Sears for you. A dramatic turnaround in that Company’s fortunes is a sure thing and you’ll make a killing.

    A sure thing would be the TWU selling stock. They really should incorporate!! A great investment that would always make money.

    They already have. They’re just keeping it a secret from you. It’s called CWA/IAM/TWU. LLC. INC.

    lol. Ask Alex. If he is honest, he will tell you that he turned down the "take it or leave it" after Uncle Jerry told them this was a one shot deal and would have been the golden egg for fleet forever. Alex and sito wanted to utilize fleet as a chip for mx. Sad.
    At any rate, the question remains, why do you keep posting the price of oil???
    I can guarantee that management is so greedy plus they have all the leverage that we wont see a dime of that unfortunately. Sorry
