ibt always allows outsourcing. Yes, ibt gave it all back and now they are trying to brag about a mere 5 lines coming back. They never should have left in the first place IMO, but that is the way the ibt/teamsters operate.
With WestJet just filing for AMFA Representation, wanted to check in on the UAL drive for AMFA representational vote. We all understand the ibt/teamsters just did an extension and yes with 5 lines supposedly coming BACK in house, and I hope this does not cloud or deter the AMFA card drive. I assure you the ibt/teamsters begged the co to allow more maint in house to help fight off that AMFA drive for representation. Matter fact, I would not put it pass that they also agreed to allowing the co to take some back a little later down the road once they see IF the deterrent worked to slow down the AMFA drive, they've done this in the past at many carriers. It's all a ploy.
Any updates on the drive as well as the real meat and potatoes of the extension would be appreciated.
