I am fully aware he put out this letter. In fact the reason he put the letter out is because of a post I made (the blue text at the bottom of this post) on Jan 2, 2013 on this very forum. If you doubt that look at the dates. He posted his letter 2 days later. The blog he is talking about is this forum website.Here’s some more interesting information. There were 14 people in your group who transferred to Title 2. So if you had 100 people that’s 14% of that group. So it wasn’t just the two Union officials after all.
On top of that it was the Bankruptcy Judge Sean Lane who imposed the terms on both AMT’s and Stores when they voted no (2 out of 7 groups) It also sounds like from reading that the rest of your group were offered options although it’s likely those options wouldn’t have been very good with others in Fleet across the system facing their own cuts. (Displacement/Bumping/Filing of vacancies)
I’m filing in a lot of blanks with some simple Google searches (Sam Cirri TWU Local 514)

You have to read between the lines WeAAsles. Though knowing what happened the last night at TULE is the "Rosetta Stone" that allows you to do that.
Focus on these parts.
"Fourteen title II positions were awarded, including myself, Debbie Tiller and other Fleet Service Clerks"
"We tried to get the company to complete this prior to the Fleet Service RIF date and also asked the Company to delay their report date by a month"
That goes back to the last day I was talking about at TULE. Management informed the clerks they were awarded those jobs and given a report date then turned right around and called them the very same day and told them to report to their new positions and they would have to submit an out of station transfer. That's the part Cirri conveniently left out of his letter.
This is not something I am just making up and adjusting to push a narrative WeAAsles. Look back at the post I made on Jan 2, 2013 (which is the reason Cirri posted that letter to begin with). My story has not changed in 10 years.
How would you feel if you were awarded a position, given a report date, then called back the same day and told now you have to put in an out of station transfer? Especially when you had more seniority than one of the TWU officers that was awarded the job? Do you see the problem here?
BREAKING NEWS!!! BREAKING NEWS !!!
TWU Local 514 President and Chairman of Fleet Service
Pull off the best scam of Local 514 and Tulsa Base
Alright everybody I hope this gets your attention and action. Over the base closure a well put together plan played out for Sam Cirri and Debbie Tiller to be awarded jobs at the Tulsa Base in Title II as plant maintenance mechanics. As most of you know by now that Fleet Service duties were reassigned to Title I OSM. Sam and Debbie both being FSC's at the base were laid off on Dec 14th, 2012. They chose and were awarded to displace a less junior employee at DFW. This was the last day of the Fleet Service dept at TULE. Somehow out of 130+ employees these two were the only ones awarded positions even though others with more seniority also qualified. The word on the floor is that somehow they stayed as an in station employee on the transfer list after Dec 14, because Sam had requested that they be paid by the local under UBC. All the others that qualified were offered jobs on their last day in Tulsa and told to report to Plant Maintenance on Dec 17th.
Late on Friday night Dec 14th those other employees were called back by the supervisor and told to go to DFW, their awarded city in the RIF. They now have to transfer back as out of station while Sam and Debbie remain in station even though Fleet is gone and she has less seniority than the other person that qualified for painter, the position Debbie was awarded during base closure. Sam got electronics. Remember people, Sam and Debbie both bumped someone out of their jobs in DFW, causing someone to either hit the street or relocate their family. Total BS from the local President and Chairman of Fleet. Everyone should protest this. They hoped to slide this in while everyone was gone during base closure. Call the local and international and let them know this is wrong and that Sam and Debbie should be ask to step down and have the transfers voided. Great leaders our local 514. Another black eye for the TWU ! Go AMFA !!!
