    AMFA Organizing Drive to Replace Association

    WeAAsles; As a fleet worker can you post the numbers of members that attend monthly meetings and when it comes to Votes that require the membership participation TWU side of the ASSociation what percentage of LAA members actually participate. From my experience unless the TWU is supplying...

    AMFA Organizing Drive to Replace Association

    WeAAsles ; I am really surprised that you would put in PRINT that YOU would Cross a UNION Picket Line.. That really says alot about YOU. You preach Unionism yet you are willing to cross a union line. That is very disappointing. But I always felt that MOST at AA would do that since the TWU has...

    AMFA Organizing Drive to Replace Association

    Reading what History? are you saying that AMFA members have been asking the TWU to start an Organizing Campaign at each of the carriers represented by AMFA? If that was the Case why haven't there been ANY Press release by the TWU or conversations anywhere about it? You making statements...

    AMFA Organizing Drive to Replace Association

    Per YOUR POST; Are you saying that Samuelsen made these statements? If that is True then the TWU has found a way to RAID SWA & Alaska, because the membership of both carriers that are represented by AMFA even if they did come to the TWU would have been directed to the Organizing Division of...

    AMFA Organizing Drive to Replace Association

    WeAAsles; If this is SO TRUE then why is it mostly FLEET workers that are the loudest speakers against the M&R work group getting their own representation? If each UNION member is supposed to support other members of unions no matter what the NAME why is it that the TWU is the loudest of the...

    AMFA Organizing Drive to Replace Association

    WeAAsles; Are you seriously believing that Samuelsen a supposed educated leader of a VERY LARGE AFL-CIO affiliated Union has to use this type of rhetoric to his membership to support his claims? I ask YOU, how can it be a RAID when the members of HIS union both TWU and IAM sign cards in a HOPE...

    AMFA Organizing Drive to Replace Association

    FYI AMFA represents more than people with a license. MY question was those members part of the M&R c/c will the association fight for the rights of fleet workers that are in the bag room for example who get bumped to the line to chuck bags during the winter months by the senior tow team guys...

    AMFA Organizing Drive to Replace Association

    With this statement I have to disagree the members of M&R at USAirways did get 50% +1 and a vote and LOST. They Lost due to the fact their pension and medical was threatened. Just like in the current Contract it states that any change in Union representation medical and Pensions could be in...

    AMFA Organizing Drive to Replace Association

    WeAAsles; The difference between the TUW/IAM/IBT and AMFA is that cards are collected by the Organizers at each station. There is NO direct link to AMFA. There isn't a Paid Organizing division. Also the collection Point of cards is sent to the Headquarters of each of these industrial unions...

    AMFA Organizing Drive to Replace Association

    I have a Question for the TWU/IAM supporters here??? Being the the NMB ruled that the flight simulator tech, de-icers, fleet tow team members, LAV truck operators are part of the M&R class and craft. Just what is the ASSOCIATION doing to remove the language from the Fleet contract since those...

    AMFA Organizing Drive to Replace Association

    WeAAsles; In this letter from the IAM in the second last paragragh In other post you stated that AMFA failed, in its attempt at a raid. By NOT collecting the appropriate numbers to satisfy the NMB. It has also been said that card signers forged signatures to give AMFA the numbers so that they...

    AMFA Organizing Drive to Replace Association

    WeAAsles; The AMFA Organizers here at AA have NEVER been accused of signing cards or falsifying any information that was supplied to the NMB about any member of M&R.. class and craft. For you to throw that out there is a complete insult. I was involved with every drive from 1998 until 2020...

    AMFA Organizing Drive to Replace Association

    You have ZERO clue what you are talking about, even with the added on fleet tow crew, flight simulator tech's deicers, Utility member, the total number of cards turned in was above the required numbers to get a VOTE. What no one knows is how many of those cards were deemed not good by the...

    Scorpion 2; You are correct they went to the convention, and it ALL means squat. They are spending your dues money as they see fit. There are people on here who believe it is OK for that to Happen but question what AMFA spends its money on. The IAM/TWU were decertified at AA and the ASSociation...

    AMFA Organizing Drive to Replace Association

    Scorpion 2; Granted there is an ASSociation Constitution, but both the IAM and TWU are still running as separate entities in a way. The TWU just had it's convention am I correct? Aren't things being done at stations around the system dependent on the larger represented group? So are you...

    AMFA Organizing Drive to Replace Association

    That would be wishful thinking on your part due to their oath and the constitution of the TWU, they would be considered negligent in their duties and they could be removed for cause. Gary at one point in the Past was an AMFA supporter before he drank the kool aid. You will see in the future just...

    99RAM; Maybe in the past the IAM would of been a better choice. but they failed at UAL, CAL TWA, Eastern, USAir, Alaska, NWA all were represented by the IAM. Most filed BK and lost pensions and thousands of M&R employees. The TWU has been the one union that has set the BAR in a downward...

    AMFA Organizing Drive to Replace Association

    BeechDriver; It's Not a question of if the IAM would take the risk or NOT isn't it the same risk for the TWU as Well? What would happen if the Members of M&R actually got a VOTE. Since there would be Association, IAM or TWU depending on which started the card drive, and NO union, and a write...
