    UnPaid Sick time WITH A DR''S NOTE>>

    unfortunately we have the same problem as you. And our union the IAM is not enforcing the contract through arbitration. Never has. That is why this company continues to do anything and everything it wants to do, whether we have a contract or not. The employees have no voice and no power on this...

    September 2003 Schedule

    We hear PIT will be down to 50 flights in October and just a dozen or so come January and MDA is looking more and more like CLT. Also throw in our Maintenance base going to IND. Our Airbus work is going to go to outsiders because our union forgot to put in black and white language. Scotty''s...

    US Airways Ready To Fly Embraer 170s Under MidAtlantic Banner

    RJ hub flying is a model that continues to fail. American can''t make a red cent with the RJ''s and ATR''s flying out of hubs. Once again, reinventing the wheel. Until we forecast the traveling public correctly we will be destined to get the snot beat out of us by the SWA of this world. love

    Over at the American Airline link on US AVIATION a thread about the conflict of interest of someone who was on the American Arbitration Assication which conducted their vote was tied into some confidential papers in contract form with American.

    Sincerity and Negotiations

    Sincere: without deceit or pretense; truthful. Once again the workers get fooled by fear and the inept ability of the unions to cover all bases. I certainly hope there is some group that is organized enough to say 'no' to the veiled corporate greed. The workers at my company, US AIRWAYS...

    US & UAL flight attendants beware of Hoffa

    Hoffa is scrambling in a move that is strictly political. What AFA member will want to join the IBT when the IBT's own flight attendants want out of the IBT? On Monday I read that, 8,000 NWA flight attendants put in enough authorizations to the NMB to get rid of the IBT and a new vote will be...

    the convention for 141M was canceled. I heard most of the Locals are broke. I wonder what will become of 141M once the United Airline Mechanics pull out.

    Today, a Rival Union petitioned to oust IAM at United

    Lavman, It's amusing that the Toy union with Roach is already using rhetoric. Maybe if the IAM started representing people instead of themselves then there wouldn't have been a rival raid. love

    A.M.F.A. Files for Election

    Why would any mechanic want to keep the IAM? This question has nothing to do with AMFA, just why would any mechanic or even a ramper want to keep the IAM? They are doing an absolutely horrible job.

    Have Unions Outlived their Relevance?

    at least one published report on The_mechanic web site said that some union officials of the IAM were mentioned as a suit against by IAM members at United regarding the ESOP. They have attorney berman who filed the suit. Yes, the same berman who won big settlements against Enron, Exxon...

    Why is the Caribbean profitable?

    It is nice to know that US AIRWAYS said the Carribbean is profitable. Is it because of the ticket price? Or are we just more competitive with these routes with the US AIRWAYS Vacations marketing?
