On Thursday September 30th, 2004, it will be 3 full months since Jim Little wrote the below letter concerning "AA Shared Sacrifice". To date, I have not seen ANY response or report on the findings. Is this just another lame TWU Jim Little Broken Promise? :shock:

RE: AA Shared Sacrifice

Dear Brothers:

As you know, I have had numerous correspondences with American Airlines regarding the issue of shared sacrifice. We received preliminary information from American Airlines, however; my response letter to James B. Weel, Managing Director ER, requested a more substantial and detailed breakdown no later that June 28, 2004, which they have provided. We are in the process of evaluating and analyzing the information and will respond as soon as possible.

Sincerely & fraternally,


James C. Little
Director Air Transport Division
Intl. Administrative Vice President

Maybe I should call AA Management and ask them. You seem to talk with them alot lately. Or is being a RAT considered talking?

Now that the AMFA election has been blocked for a year, Jim little can now offer a response to the "shared sacrifice" by giving AA some more concessions starting with our pension! :rant:

All communication to our un-elected ATD officers was cut off to the membership about a year ago. Have you forgotten? :shock: :shock:

And what did he tell you???

Let me guess....

We will get them next time :lol:


We have hired a consulting firm to evaluate the "shared sacrafice" and the "turnaround plan" :lol:


They will meet our demands or else :lol:


They can do that :lol:



More concessions on the way :lol:


With leaders like Jim Little and the twu what is the point of paying dues to a union that does not represent its members best interests :shock:

Does it really matter what I suggest. Actually it does not matter what anyone suggests. You have no say in this union.
If you do suggest anything it dont mean sit until 2008. So suggest all you want.

I suggest we all sign AMFA cards and get this inept union out of our negotiations.


It may not be any better but I am sure it wont be any worse than the company lap dog union we are paying for now. :D

Yes it matters what you suggest. I have not paid dues since I believe April of 2004. Usually I am forced to pay dues about once a year. I am also on Agency Fee status. In other words I have taken the appropriate steps to weaken the TWU. All they have to do is enforce their contract, then my precious dues money will reluctantly be extorted for their non-representational issues. So since you will not suggest, then I will, stop paying them. Read Article 38 of the your AA/TWU disagreement.

And its guys like you that wont fight for respect or a decent wage! So long as you have a job it does not matter what they take away. Every thing is going up except your pay and benefits.

Even the twu gets yearly raises which I am sure they earned off of your cowardly ways. Keep fighting for the right to work soon you will be working for minimum wage and no benefits. This is what the company wants and this is what the twu wants. :up:
