    Jim, "Kev" is not even close to be even remotely being considered stupid, I figured that out long time ago.. but if you want my opinions and miss them? well, start a new topic.

    I couldn't care less but Kev asked 2 or 3 time with no response from you so I thought I'd give my guess. If you'd answered Kev you've have heard nothing from me.

    The National Mediation Board notified Delta Thursday afternoon that a majority of eligible simulator technicians voted against IAM representation.

    Guess they're not a shoe-in !

    Is it really accurate to say that "a majority of eligible simulator technicians voted against IAM representation"? Keep in mind that under NMB rules for airline and railway employees, if someone abstains from voting, the ballot box is "stuffed" in favor of the company management by having that abstention counted as a "no" vote. How many of the 91 people in the SimTech group abstained? That would give a more accurate picture.

    I heard that 43 of the 91 voted in favor of union representation. Three more votes and the outcome would have been entirely different. It certainly wasn't a landslide.

    it was 48 no and 43 yes, but remember if someone doesnt vote its counted as a no vote, a real democratic election, NOT!

    Can you imagine the outcry if public elections were held this way? There would be riots in the streets of every city in the United States. I just don't understand why this ballot box stuffing is considered appropriate, legal, and acceptable in airline and railway elections. It runs counter to every principle of the democracy that is the United States.

    Much like the way the IAM elects its "Grand poo ba" :shock:

    But a least the IAM is a leader in Solidarity. Well, unless there is a way to add some dues paying member at the expense of another union!
