    The AMFA card drives sure are picking up.
    2 work groups at Spirit Airlines are seeking AMFA representation for their Mechanics and Maintenance Controllers. On the very recent heels of Horizon Mechanics overwhelmingly bringing in AMFA, Spirit Mechanics and Maintenance Controllers will seek the same.
    I wish all the Spirit mechs and MC's good luck in their drive. If you guys have any questions or need to clear up any misinformation or confusion, please do not hesitate to ask here or any one of the other AMFA represented airline mechanics.
    Below are the announcements as well as the NMB's investigation results of the vote at Horizon Airlines:
