As SWA brings on aircraft they have to increase heads. It's not rocket science. AMFA only increases its miniscule headcount because of more planes...its ridiculous scope language does not generate more work/heads.

Exactly.

“Southwest Airlines is “like a caged lion” as it prepares for the biggest period of growth in its history, VP Southwest Business Dave Harvey told Routes Americas 2022.

The LCC giant, which has almost 400 aircraft on order including 257 Boeing MAX 7 jets and 135 MAX 8s, will hire 25,000 staff by 2024. Its growth alone will be the same size as the current network of the proposed Frontier-Spirit merged entity, he said”

Looks to be a great start for the year 2022!

With the current Sun Country Airlines vote for AMFA representation going on and ending before end of this month.

Having more than 50% of the Spirit Airlines Mechanics cards on hand, and now that JetBlue's offer has been turned down, after reading this update below it appears there will be a vote at Spirit coming very soon. As stated below the actual card count is even more than 50% of the both combined Spirit/Frontier airlines merged airline. So NOW is the time Spirit Mechanics. It is time to get that vote behind you BEFORE the merger so that your Class and Craft is fully represented by a "MECHANICS" union. Don't go into merger without representation. Good luck to you all at Spirit on getting this very important AMFA representational vote done at your carrier. Protect yourselves now and be prepared now. Also wanna wish you all luck on the expected up coming merger with Frontier (who already has their mechanics represented). The below info is an eye opener, now that JetBlue's offer has been rejected, you guys need to move forward with this vote now since they have more than needed to get the vote thru with the NMB. Again good luck, stay united, and let your voices be heard loud and clear with a Class and Craft specific, AMFA representational union, protecting you...


NOW JETBLUE IS KNOCKING AT THE DOOR – SIGN A CARD FOR A COLLECTIVE VOICE
Updated On: Apr 07, 2022
April 7, 2022
Dear Spirit Airlines Aircraft Maintenance Technicians:
We’re honored and we want to thank you for placing your confidence in the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association (AMFA). Your grassroots organizing efforts and collection of Authorization for Representation cards in favor of AMFA is still ongoing with favorable interest and results. We have written to you before about the career impacts arising from the merger of two carriers and most of you responded – AMFA now has signed authorization cards from over 50% of the Aviation Maintenance Technicians of Spirit Airlines. In fact, the number of cards signed by Spirit AMTs would constitute a majority of AMTs at a combined Spirit-Frontier carrier.
Nevertheless, you now have a different suitor knocking at your door – JetBlue. And in terms of numbers, the JB maintenance workforce exceeds that of Spirit. Now – prior to merger or acquisition – is the time to obtain a unified collective voice.
A seniority integration process is in your future; a process that will impact every aspect of your working life: access to travel benefits, your shift and days off, the station where you work, and – in the event of furloughs – your job security.
AMFA will provide you a proven negotiating experience, legal staff, and economic experts that are critical for the protection of your career. The same team will be dedicated to increasing your wages, benefits, and promoting our interests as a craft in Washington.
If you have not signed an authorization card yet, what are you waiting for? There can be no further delay – AMFA will be filing for a union election with the National Mediation Board this month.
This is your career and livelihood, protect it.
We currently represent AMTs at Alaska Airlines, Horizon Air, and Southwest Airlines. The AMFA–Southwest Airlines contract sets the standard for pay and benefits in the industry. As you know, a negotiated contract would give you continuity, structure and foundation in applied work rules for you and the company that is consistent across your stations.
About AMFA:
  1. Members elect AND can recall all officers
  2. Members must approve any changes to our constitution or bylaws, including proposed dues increases
  3. Dues rate is the lowest in the industry – two times your base hourly wage
  4. AMFA negotiated for and represents the highest paid AMT groups among commercial passenger carriers
  5. AMFA has won tens of thousands of dollars in outsourcing grievances
  6. AMFA has open contract negotiations where member observers can watch negotiations, holding the company and their union accountable
  7. AMFA maintains a highly trained Accident Investigation Team that works with the NTSB during accident investigations
  8. AMFA has established a Professional Standards Program and trains representatives for these positions.
If you need more information, or you have a pressing matter, please call our National office at 303-752-2632.
Sincerely,
Bret Oestreich
National President

Further Organizing news:

Even with the news at JetBlue of the MC's not being a separate group as well as the rejected JB offer at Spirit, where JetBlue Mechanics will continue to collect more cards to get to an election that will now include the MC's as well. Might take just bit longer but well worth it guys, so good luck with that.

As we all know the newly fired up card drive for AMFA at AA is underway yet again. Now the organizers are fully armed with the total numbers required, now that the NMB and co and (yes) even the corrupted TWU screwing the Mechanics at AA, this card drive kicked off on Nov 2021. So good luck to you all at AA again.

AS the campaigns for AMFA representation are picking up greatly I do predict 2 positive outcomes quickly with Sun Country and Spirit getting their votes done first. Then more than likely we should see the JetBlue Mechanics getting their final cards in to help bring in the MC's that will be included at their carrier, maybe by end of summer (my guess only). Then my prediction that the AA'ers will come in by late in the year and hopefully a new vote will come by early next year.

With all these airlines reaching out for the Class and Craft specific AMFA representational union, maybe National needs to get a full time person in charge of looking and dealing with all of the interest IF not already done at the upper levels. This incoming growth for AMFA is wonderful and great for enforcing the strength of the AMFA membership. It is very clear that the Airline Mechanic industry is turning to AMFA for their representation. They have seen and watched AMFA at work at all the other currently represented airlines grow their Class and Craft and increase the pay and QOL issues greatly that they are now in full force attracting AMFA to their carriers.

What are the other "industrial unions doing? Well they are getting smaller and smaller for sure. Heck, even the TWU at AA is trying to kick out and take over the IAM. TWU is also trying to do a "REVENGE" card drive at SWA, where all the mechanics are laughing their arses off at. The TWU's actions will backfire big time on them in the long run, wait see...

How come AMFA has constant and unending problems with the carriers they represent? Those personal battles cause the Lawfirm of Seeham, Seeham, Meltz and Peterson to bill (bilk) AMT’s of hundreds of thousands of their dues dollars yearly. Can anyone ever site me ANY examples where AMFA (SSMP) and SWA ever worked together for the common good?

Hi Swampy. Hope you ate your Weaties today. Hey listen I just wanted to give you a heads up cause you’re just a little off there. We had a new seniority roster put out on April 1 and I checked it for you. I know AMFA guys only care about AMT’s so I’ll only share those numbers with you now.

Total AMT and AMT Crew Chief count 10,535. And that doesn’t count all the “And Related” Maintenance groups that you guys like to pretend don’t exist. That’s about another 6,000 FYI. So around 16,000 total M&R (And growing)

Aren’t you guys still under a measly 3000?

My prediction (In swampy’s mind) AMFA will inevitably gain all the left over LCC’s, then they will take AA, moving next to envelope UAL before finally moving on to a “resistance is futile” campaign absorbing Delta into the AMFA collective. From there AMFA will spread out Internationally and conquer the World. All Airline CEO’s will cringe at the mighty power wielded by the AMFA warriors wrenches. 😂

And jetblue just announced large pay increases for their maintenance group this week so there goes that other false claim that they are signing AMFA cards because they want a union...they don't. One day you'll stop swallowing Bret's lies.

Ok here they go again. The same tired MO already being set up. And how much money will Seeham make for this newest likely failed attempt with the same old line? When will SWA AMT’s wake up and realize they’re being played? This Law firm is just using current AMFA members as a cash cow.

This is a scam!!!!

“We are cautiously optimistic that Spirit Airlines management will not attempt to prevent an election by inflating the eligibility list via submitting other workgroups beyond our class and craft. AMFA believes we have filed significantly more than enough signed Authorization for Representation cards to cover all potential eligible voters within the Mechanic and Related Class or Craft at Spirit Airlines

If the TWU is going after SWA and not the ibt as you say, then why do you find it necessary to post ibt UAL campaign material?



Again with the deflection -

You critiqued AMFA for not expanding MX stations ... when have the IAM or TWU forced an airline to open a MX station where it DID NOT PREVIOUSLY EXIST?

Answer that question ... NOT BK Station losses - again stations where MX DID NOT PREVIOUSLY EXIST - you can't because just like AMFA, the TWU & IAM cannot force an airline to open a MX where none previously existed.
Hey TSH,
Another filing for AMFA representation at Spirit now. TWU doesn't have an iota of a chance to get in here. And the teamsters are more than likely doomed at Frontier after the merger yet again as Spirit Mechanics collected enough cards even for the combined total of Spirit and Frontier Mechanics and related.
Sun Country's Mechanics vote will be done 25th (I think) A pretty good month for AMFA and the Mechanics Class and Craft in our industry for sure. Hope JB gets in gear with their MC's soon too, then onto AA's grass roots efforts as well. So maybe, just maybe this will tickle the interest at United to do the same again? What says you sir???


And there you have it folks. CONGRATS!!! To all Spirit's Mechanics and related for their overwhelming interest in AMFA representation. Ideal timing before an all important merger of two airlines (Frontier). With more than 50% of cards collected even at the newly combined Spirit/Frontier merger is a good indication that AMFA should be able to maintain their representation after the merger as well. I am sure there are plenty of Frontier Mechanics ready to also bring in AMFA as their representational entity.
With the results from the Sun Country Mechanics coming by end of this month and now the Spirit Mechanics filed with NMB; A busy month for AMFA Organization. Now we wait for the JetBlue Mechanics to get thru the MC's interest to bring in AMFA with the mechanics too. C'mon AA, you guys got some catching up to do fellas, LOL :)


PRESS RELEASE: AMFA FILES AUTHORIZATION FOR REPRESENTATION CARDS WITH NATIONAL MEDIATION BOARD ON BEHALF OF AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE TECHNICIANS AND RELATED EMPLOYEES AT SPIRIT AIRLINES

CENTENNIAL, CO – May 6, 2022 – The Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association (“AMFA”) filed Authorization for Representation cards today with the National Mediation Board (NMB) on behalf of the Aircraft Maintenance Technicians (“AMTs”) and Related Employees at Spirit Airlines.
“AMFA is thrilled the AMTs and Related Employees at Spirit Airlines have placed their faith in us to act as their union representative,” said Bret Oestreich, AMFA National President. “Their confidence in our abilities to represent them is evidenced by AMFA now having signed authorization cards from significantly more than 50% of the craft or class at Spirit Airlines. In fact, the number of signed authorization cards filed by AMFA is sufficient to be a majority of the craft or class at a combined Spirit-Frontier carrier.
Like other union organizing drives sweeping the nation, this grassroots campaign was led by the AMTs at Spirit Airlines. “As a workgroup, we need a unified voice to ensure a safe workplace, fair pay and benefits, and seniority protection. With AMFA as our collective bargaining representative, we feel confident we will finally have a seat and voice at the table,” declared one of the AMFA organizer employees at Spirit.
“We look forward to working with these experienced professionals to elevate their standards and improve their working conditions,” said Oestreich.
Spirit Airlines is an ultra-low budget airline headquartered in Miramar, Florida. In recent months, the carrier has entertained offers to merge with Frontier Airlines and more recently received an unsolicited acquisition offer from JetBlue. Should a merger or acquisition be completed, AMFA feels confident in its ability to help facilitate that transition.
“Having union representation during a carrier merger is more important than ever as seniority and aircraft maintenance standards may become precarious,” said Oestreich. “AMFA has successfully navigated these waters before and should we be given the opportunity, we will vigorously represent Spirit’s AMT and Related Employees’ interests during any merger or acquisition transition and beyond, while also welcoming the AMTs from the merged carrier into our craft-specific union.”


And here's a little more details on next actions with NMB and Spirit Mechanics Filing:

The other sad part about all of these fake AMFA filings particularly for those not yet represented is that they stall any chance for them to become organized through “REAL” card drives. Obviously though we know that the Seeham Law Group and their paid puppet Bret and his board don’t care though. Why should they since they already got there’s.

On another issue, this comment of Bret (SSMP) hoping that Spirit management doesn’t add to the class and craft against those they filed for is another absolute complete load of malarkey.

SSMP knows full well going back to NMB rulings from 1945 who is considered as part of the class and craft. This ridiculously transparent scam they play where they PRETEND they don’t know and then feign anger is nothing more than a very bad performance. It’s completely fake.

SCAM!!!! Cash grab.
