    The changing rules of union certification

    Here is the most detailed explanation of why the current voting method is undemocratic... "As a professor and scholar of constitutional law, labor law, and law of the American political process, I respectfully submit these comments in support of the proposed rule that, in NMB representation...

    The changing rules of union certification

    Actually they are neutral parties. It's sort of like a jury...they are neutral but pick a side based on the facts. That doesn't make the jury not neutral. They are neutral because they aren't on the side of one party or the other. In this case the university professors aren't union...

    The changing rules of union certification

    I think the comments with the most value are the ones from neutral experts on the subject such as professors from univerisites etc... Copied from facebook: I write in support of the NMB’s proposed rule that would certify a bargaining representative based on a majority of all votes cast...

    The changing rules of union certification

    My style is getting higher compensation and respect! If it means getting in a few scuffles with management...then so be it, i'm not bending over and taking one that easily! Tired of the fighting you say? I'd rather fight for what I believe in, then just give it all up and take what someone...

    The changing rules of union certification

    The over 5,000 DL f/a's who voted in favor of representation in 2008 must be out of their mind! Right?

    Union elections and the RLA....POLL!

    You have an anti-AFA LEC President at NWA right now...and from what I have heard she is a waste. I think that there are people at Delta that are currently not voting who could make great leaders in our union, i think many people will embrace the change once its all said and done. You might as...

    Union elections and the RLA....POLL!

    I didnt' blame management...I said it would have been to their advantage. Let me ask you something. If you were in the housing market and you knew that salex tax was going down in January and that you would receive a $5,000 tax credit if you purchased after January....would you but your home...

    Union elections and the RLA....POLL!

    My tactics? I'm not even a dues paying member...I just look at the big picture. The big picture is not to just pave way to all of managements requests and just complete the merger forgetting that there is a contract in place. Your elected officers have done EVERYTHING to preserve your collective...

    Union elections and the RLA....POLL!

    The only 3 people NOT elected by the members are the 3 Master Executive Council Pres/VP/Set-Treas Do you know who makes up the Master Executive Council? The LEC Presidents They tell those 3 officers what they want done. I agree with you 100%. It would be great to have direct elections for...

    Union elections and the RLA....POLL!

    My voice is just as loud as yours....us it. Correct. Those letters were written at the request of the MEC (Local Council Presidents). The MEC President acts as a liason between the union and the company... ...and this is where the problem lies. You didn't help anyone get anything passed. You...

    Union elections and the RLA....POLL!

    It hasn't changed Jim, the structure of AFA mirrors the structure of ALPA. We have Presidents and ALPA has Chairmans. As it clearly states in the AFA Constitution & Bylaws under Local Council President... (5) The President shall be a member of the Master Executive Council of the airline and a...

    Union elections and the RLA....POLL!

    The MEC (Master Executive Council) is all of the LEC Presidents...thats what the MEC is. Those Presidents vote and elect the MEC President/VP/Sec-Treas Those 3 individuals that the MEC elects...have absolutely no voting power. The LEC Presidents (who make up the MEC) also carry their votes to...

    Union elections and the RLA....POLL!

    Dignity, Jim is correct. The membership votes for the MEC. The MEC is every LEC President. So at NWA, the 10 Council Presidents make up the MEC.....they then vote for the 3 MEC officers. But the MEC officers carry no votes, only the LEC Presidents have votes. So YOU DO vote for the MEC!

    Merger questions answered by AFA MEC President

    Thats all you got? I guess there isn't much you can refute is there...or are you waiting for management to email you what to say?
