All they want is your Pension money. http://finance.yahoo.com/news/iam-teamster-raid-endangers-us-211100792.html http://aviationblog.dallasnews.com/2013/05/teamsters-file-to-represent-us-airways-mechanics.html/ They will get your hard earned pensions and raise your dues by 33%. You will have NO maintenance locals and NO representation. Ask the guys at UAL/CAL how they feel about the Teamsters. Ask the guys at SWA how they feel about the Teamsters. Right now the company and the IAM might not be negotiating in good faith but the Teamsters is not the answer. Do your own research and get educated. This is a knee jerk reaction from many pissed off AMT's. I understand how frustrated you must feel but this is exactly what the Teamsters want you to believe. They are vultures on the move. If anything save your PENSIONS before it is too late.
