    Doug Parker decries profit sharing....

      I agree with overspeed......it would take us about 7 years to recoup the Delta profit sharing at a 3% raise. How is that beneficial?  alot can happen in 7 years........another bankruptcy?  never say never give us the money now!

    The DOL files suit against the IAMPF and trustees

    several of us on this forum have tried to warn that the Teamster central multi-employer pension was in trouble and then the same people warned about the IAMNPF was not what we want to get into to.

    TWU/IAM Members: How Long Will Negotiations Take?

    Manager Peterson Working Behind Closed Door Stalls AA negotiation

    I assure any of you that Gary Peterson is not working with the company.  I speak with him on a regular basis and his battles are inline with the membership.  There are plenty of turn coats in the ranks but GP is not one of them.

    Mr. Parker Delta plus 7

    Delta plus 7 only levels the playing field and does not address all our concessions!   American Airlines owes us delta plus 7 and more.   We our worth it and command it
