    Yes I did my suggestion is this if they insist on the international outsourcing we maintain the same language as before when it was allowed. On the paid rest put in the not trading into it the 24 hour rule notice. But if we keep hitting a wall on the money, get as much as we can, without losing our scope ,and call it a day. And by all means gentlemen follow all our procedures.

    Bingo! We are on the same page with those 3 items you talk about, as I think most are.
    BTW; will you accept a PM from me?

    I don't know, the vibes I got from that cheesy video they put out, quickly, doesn't seem to show much urgency to me to get a contract, so I'd be shocked if they are making anytime right now to continue any efforts without the mediator. I will say this, not saying all of our membership, but it downright floors me when I'm still seeing guys crashed out hours before time to go home. That crap worked okay when an A check was a 1 page task card 20 years ago, but honestly now days. REALLY??? Seems pretty clear we must be doing just fine and not have enough work as it is, or at least that's exactly the message I'm sure the company sees from our craft. Yet we piss and moan about how overworked we are and need more money. That's always been an Achilles heel to this craft though, in the 35 plus years I've been at it, at different airlines, nothing changes, so why should the perception that we're anything more than overpaid unskilled labor. Don't mean to disrespect our craft, but any of you been in this biz long enough, and take a look at your station, you know exactly what I am talking about.

    Crowfoot don’t hit the disagree button. Prove that the information is out there somewhere?

    What I want to see is any official news item or press release that informed the World that the IBT represented UPS 1700 AMT’s had received a new Tentative Agreement and were going to vote on it with the results to be released today?

    Is it really that hard to say that the information was never released publicly?

    It's driving him bonkers isn't it?
    It kills him that I get info about his contract nego's before he does and of course much, much more accurate, and now it is driving him nuts the same is happening with the contract over at big brown.
    Don't spill the beans crow, let him do his own homework. It really is out there, don't know why he is having so much trouble finding it. Haven't you been reading the info from big brown too??

    admittedly, you seem to know more about American Negotiations than our furry friend. But I think he does have the info, however, his handlers want him to stick to the controlled narrative.

    No doubt. He does have some good info. He just one of those guys that can never be wrong so I get a rise out of proving him wrong then exposing it, been doing it for years with him and it reverted to him after the fall of 700 and overspeed, now that was fun.

    Don't know about the C check, but line gets busy, and Line Ron we have to call overtime every night to cover the work. If planning sees you have 18 techs they will load the work up. You can only push category C work, now days. You go on a Downline to say LGA, and fix that aircraft, MOC will hijack you for 3 other airplanes, and an MV1.

    Aw man I just want to be as great as you two guys are and at least be right once in awhile. I don’t even have to be right all the time like you both.

    You two are just too special for me to keep up with.

    And BTW. I know it doesn’t exist but.

    What I want to see is any official news item or press release that informed the World that the IBT represented UPS 1700 AMT’s had received a new Tentative Agreement and were going to vote on it with the results to be released today?
