    Who cares about fleet? Always been us vs. them. Why change that? Title 2 can stay with them too...right? o_O

    Do some simple checking. Title 1 and 2 are together per NMB class and craft. Stop spreading crap about title 2. If anything get them to sign cards.

    Our Maint. Training Instructors are now represented by AMFA and are also included in the Class and Craft set by the NMB ruling.
    I got no clue where this guy gets his info but I am sure he is just spinning the misinformation on purpose as they always do during the drives.

    I know most all of us would like to ignore them all, but there are times when we have to answer their postings so not to allow the misinformation to continue.
    BTW our maint trainers are represented by AMFA here at SWA so he is wrong yet again.

    Not sure why MTR cares bout fleet. But when it comes time that for example when fleet is courted for support for say a strike they mtr care n vice verus. We as fleet n you folks as MTR are in eyes of this money hungry mgt just pure numbers n expendables at that. It wld be nice to see the 2 groups join forces for the best deals but should mtr break away n join amfa regardless we as active employees should at very least stick together in the fight but somehow i dont think it ever has or will occur

    Outstanding to hear! Keep up the good work and don't let anyone scare tactic you like the TWU/IAM/Asso./or the co. threaten your job for signing. If they do, make the call to the NMB, Labor Board and especially inform AMFA organizers at AA and/or even AMFA National.

    They do care about fleet. By the mech and related going with their own C&C union, this will allow a better representation of fleet as now their asso can focus on them like the AMFA focuses on the mechs and related. It will be beneficial for all involved to get represented by a more focussed class of representation fitted much better for their C&C. It's a win-win for all. Fleet and others will still be represented unless they decide to do a card drive themselves.

    Same DNA as 700 and Weazle.
    They can't help themselves. It's a disease like alcoholism.
    Spread fear and lies. They need attention. So sad. So sad.

    The rank and file should demand a refund.

    That is why I thought AMP was a better option.

    A UNION of ONLY American Airlines employees.

    To be fair, prior to this merger and NMB certification, he was correct. The USAir maintenance trainers were in their own craft or class. Read the NMB determination. He was posting the way it was not the way it is now. I don’t think he meant anything misleading. He was just uninformed of the change.
