    AA and Labor Negotiations-2020

    If the Association had any intent on getting this done they would have asked the Mediator to release us and start the clock. Its clear that after 6 years they have no real intentions on moving forward. If you want to see this resolved, SIGN A CARD.

    Exactly, the Union gave the company a comprehensive nine weeks ago but chose to leave us in the dark, get it all out. If the company knows what we are asking for the members should know. I've heard the argument that the members have such low expectations that they may accept a poor deal, well...

    Ok then why such an obsession with what is going on with Maintenance?

    Well actually you know that's not true. A&P mechanics, which is what I am, and whom I was referring to with "we" have consistently filled out more than enough cards, most line stations were over 90%. Some of the other groups in M&R were less enthusiastic but the TWU still had to include dead...

    Thanks for the invite but I'll pass. We know how the IAM expresses their hospitality. http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/jobs/INQ_JobbingBlogBygones-be-bygones-union-style.html

    Yes and they got to vote on it. We were told we would get to vote on it then denied a vote, that's a big difference. Also like I said the HP side was non-union till they realized that in a merger, with no Union they would get stapled to the bottom of the Seniority list and they never even had a...

    The America West agents voted to join their Association. America West had IBT, East had CWA

    Ok, so you feel you are here monitoring the Forum for Alex? That's fine, but why doesn't Alex have an A&P do that? Because they have a basic resentment and mistrust for Aircraft Maintenance, always have, for the 30 years I've been at AA. They have this because of all the times we have tried...

    Ok, saw the PM I don't think that we have ever actually met. Why don't you just post it? Or do you want me to post it so you can complain to the moderator and have me banned? Nothing stopping you from posting it. Its pretty clear if you read what I post what my motives are. Still no clue why a...

    I'm a 38 year mechanic commenting on a mechanics thread and I have someone who claims to be a Fleet Service clerk demanding to know what my agenda is. Isn't that ironic?

    Still have not said your name, over the years I've responded to many people and I don't remember every conversation, that's the benefit of being truthful, you don't have to remember. So go ahead remind us.

    TWU/IAM Members: How Long Will Negotiations Take?

    No Flip Flop, I've said this Association was about Dues since day 1. Where did I say it wasnt? There may be additional reasons but Dues was the main one. Virella even said it was our (Maint) fault because of all the AMFA drives. The Association even admitted it themselves when they said the...

    As usual when you cant dispute the facts you try and make it personal. Whats your agenda, you arent even a mechanic, so why are you so active in discussions between mechanics? Its always amusing when someone who hides under an alias accuses someone else of hiding something.

    The facts are what they are. Fleet was the first to capitulate in BK, when I asked Virella why he said "You guys have options, for my guys its "Will that be paper or plastic". That came from your leadership not mechanics. So don't bother with the crying about the difference in pay, you are still...

    I rarely imply, I usually just come out and say it. People like you like to spin things. We "was"? The whole BK was a scam and a fraud. You are not bankrupt when you have $5 billion in cash, just secured financing for over 500 new airplanes and have not defaulted on a single payment or violated...

    So we have a Fleet Service Clerk with a chip on his shoulder against Maintenance chairing the Maintenance Negotiations. I'm sure it was Alex who blocked the Title II guys from Local 510 from moving to Local 591. Funny how Fleets structure ensures that there are no A&P mechanics on the TWU...

    They pretty much did dump AA. The AA Logo is gone and everything we do is being changed to the way USAIR did it. They are trying to run a major International Airline like a low cost regional. Personally this isn't the only airline I've worked for, I don't get emotionally attached to corporate...
