    I remembered. Just seems to me like you were making a contest out of locations standing up and doing something is all so I busted your chops some.

    BTW were you there?

    Metal I really am sorry about the shrinkage in JFK. Unfortunately that’s all about competition and some past bad management decisions though. Business decisions both good and bad are not always within our control.

    BTW let me ask you about this text I got today. Do you feel that my friend is right and maybe I’m a shmuck for giving even a tiny ounce of a crap about you guys?

    If I was confused you would have at least denied my accusation.

    You didn’t deny it.

    I spoke directly to one of them who told me that the CWA represented them and that she took a pay cut when she went Envoy.

    She told me they make about $9.50 per hour.

    Does the CWA represent Wheelchair and Gate Check people working for Envoy?

    How much has AA offered them and CWA agreed with for them to sign their first contract?

    Financially they were better off without the CWA and remaining with Eulen shockingly.

    Between your original thoughts and your handler’s interjections you seem to get confused

    Again I will repeat what I said

    “All you have to do is outsource the work to TWU represented employees “

    my point is the same as yours outsource the work to lower pay union represented employees doing the work for less was my point all along

    I suspect you are merely a non flinching CWA supporter and not a paid lackey, drone for the organization? But you do take long enough between posts that you may be conferring with superiors?

    CWA does A LOT of outsourcing to lower paid people from what I read in your Contracts. Not to mention that I believe you may have 18 classifications depending on location?

    Seems to me that all the Labor organizations in the industry are guilty as sin of representing crap paid workers.

    Let me try to gain clarity here since what you write is not always clear and direct.

    Are you saying that you condemn the model of work being outsourced to lower paid individuals if they’re in the same Union or are you saying that it should be condoned?

    At AA it’s the CWA that seems to be the worst offender at that type of business model IMO.

    unfortunately, Weez' union is awful. It contracted out thousands of jobs to envoy and convinced the iam to wipe out mainline for United Ground Services.
    The TWU screwed all of us with envoy when the twu agreed to originate the B scale in this industry after Crandall agreed to make envoy a twu hub property.

    Also, Al, the IAM originated ready reserve, not delta. Iam originated it at HAL and USair. The IAM even originated weekend pt. They get zero benefits but pay full dues.
