    If NWA keeps flying with no problems, the strike will be the worst thing that ever happened to organized labor in the airline industry.

    WCCO) The wait is over and Northwest mechanics are walking the picket line.

    Mechanics from the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association began striking at 11:01 p.m. central time Friday. Northwest was seeking $1.1 billion worth of annual labor savings and wanted $176 million from its mechanics.

    Both sides never met face-to-face Friday.

    The airline lined up 1,200 temporary workers to replace the strikers. They also shifted Northwest mechanics' schedules so most workers would not be on the clock when the strike began.

    As the last of the workers clocked out at 8 p.m., their security badges were confiscated and they were escorted away by security.





    God Bless you all,

    Concessions begat concessions, the line has been drawn in the sand by the brave AMFA/NWA Mechanics and related! If you think a handful of SCABS will be NWA salvation you have absolutely no clue to the FAR's involved in providing an Airworthy Commercial Aircraft!
