Robbedagain; There are way too many people who are saying AMFA is going to do this or that. AMFA will take over the current contract as it is. Work with AA to rectify some of the language that maybe TWU or IAM specific and get some type of LOA to undue that particular section of the contract. Until the JCBA becomes amendable AMFA will enforce what language is in place. A/C movement and other jobs such as de-icing went to Fleet because in both books there is some language which allows the company to do that. ( That is WHY the reps say they can do that brother all the time. ) AMFA is not the saving grace everyone thinks, it is up to the membership to re-think the way things were done under the industrial union representation. Being in a separate class and craft union will just give us power over what happens to the M&R employees without the ME TOO clauses. If the fleet or stores guys do better then that is a FAILURE on our part. AA and other companies have offered stuff during negotiation to the M&R group but not to the other groups, and the industrial union just say NO, not unless all our members get it. It was the same within M&R when Tulsa's O/H base ruled. The line guys didn't get cost of living or whatever because of it. So all it did was cause dissension between us all. Those of us in M&R that some of you talk about who have said the coattail stuff, that is the reason why they feel that way. They also used to say to Hell with the O/H guys. We in M&R just need to take care of our own, do what is best for our craft and let the other groups do the same. When it all comes down to it if one union group is in a battle with the company each union group on the property should help in as many ways as possible. That is what unions are supposed to do. What work is done by each group is related to what is in the contract books. How that work gets done is worked out by the Bargaining unit and the company. Each group has its purpose and non more important than the other. Well maybe with the exception of the Pilots. I was mainly talking ground support workers.
