    AMFA Organizing Drive to Replace Association

    A new update is posted on AMFA National's website under AMFA at American Airlines. Just to be clear no one will lose their pensions or benefits from a representational change in unions, so don't let the industrial unions try to scare you away from voting for AMFA by telling you that you will...

    Good. At end of contract we will be within a buck and change, in the 60's. Nice to see American back on top. Now get AMFA in there to focus on keeping it that way. FYI; our inspectors and lead wage scales are 6% more than AMT base, and Lead Inspector is 12% more than AMT base. Thanks for the...

    Sorry for the delay, but I only get on once a day in early morning after checking news and emails. I use to be an officer within the union when we were first starting out with AMFA. I even traveled to a few of the AMFA info rallies in Tulsa, DFW and others. Been a many years ago, but nearing...

    The only people that have left since the start has been the ones stirring the pot. Mainly the ones that were here on a mission and once they are proven wrong with their misinformation, yea they don't last long after that. They usually just give up and retire.

    AMFA Organizing Drive to Replace Association

    Am I reading this correctly? I believe I read where AA (the company) is now going to remain neutral in a representational election and NOT change any benefits or contract language should AMFA prevail in an election? I do remember AMFA Legal asking for the NMB to assist in stopping AA from...

    I am confident that you and others will be pleasantly surprised when the NMB announces a vote moving forward. As far as I am concerned the TWU/IAM/Asso has not proven, nor did they present, as the NMB requested them to, the additions or the "EVIDENCE and PROOF" of why the additions should be...
