    There all industrials socialists unions who care about union dues instead of getting members what they want . You would think the iam in the Boeing contract where Boeing was to freeze the pension the members overwhelmingly turned it down . The locals of the iam supported the members vote the Intl did not. We have got to get out of these type of unions . The pilots and flight attendants have done well with having there own union. And us amts will do better on our on. Maybe do like amfa at southwest where title 2 has there on separate contract with there issues and we get our own contract with our issues every group has there on issues that need to be addressed in there own contract that they only vote for. Then in negotiations there aren’t so many groups like we have with the association. We need to separate from the afl/cio . Trumpka had a hand in this association combing together the only reason in past merger the largest won out are a vote. Well trumpka had Obama’s ear so I’m sure that had a lot to do with no vote I’m sure the iam paid someone off to get the no vote. Chicken **** little had no spine and gave into this and us losing profit sharing.after he negotiated with Parker but the iam got a new contract before the JCBA started .mwhy didn’t the twu fight to open ours up and get the holidays and sick pay holiday pay before this long out contract negotiations. Didn’t anyone in the twu look at us/aw history with the way Parker ran business ,like the aw west pilots us east pilots for all those years before the aa merger never got a jcba. So history repeats itself so again the twu screwed by not getting a contract like the iam did before negotiations.

    Actually, you all should read the Constitutions of all three. The IBT and the IAM are unions and the
    Association is not. However, the Association Constitution explains that they have removed the power
    from the other two.
