[P]I just pulled this off District 141/M web site. Its a letter from Scotty Ford the President & General Chairman to the United Membership. [/P]
[P]Read on...[/P]
[P][BR]TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2002[BR] [/P]
[P]Dear Sisters and Brothers:[/P]
[P] Today, members of the UAL Coalition are meeting with the ATSB. They are aggressively lobbying for the loan guarantee and countering arguments made by Delta and Continental, who want United to file bankruptcy.[/P]
[P] [STRONG][FONT color=#ff0033]There have been 100 carriers that have filed for bankruptcy since deregulation and only 8 have survived; TWA was one that survived. Each of those that did survive has only a shadow of their prior workforce.[/FONT][/STRONG][/P]
[P] We need to do everything within our power to see that we don’t go down the bankruptcy road. Please consider what you have to lose when you cast your vote on Wednesday. This may be the most important vote you will ever cast.[/P]
[P] The survival of United may well be in your hands. Our anger at the management team at United should not discourage us from doing the right thing.[/P]
[P] While ratification does not guarantee that United will not eventually file bankruptcy, this agreement at least gives us a chance for out of court recovery. While this agreement is bad, bankruptcy would be much worse. District 141-M urges you to ratify this agreement.[/P]
[P]Please contact your local lodge for polling place information and exercise your right to vote.[/P]
[P][BR]Sincerely and fraternally,[/P]
[P]Scotty Ford[BR]President & General Chairman[BR][/P]
 
Gee when the mechanics and related voted here we were told the IAM could not make a recommendation because of some union bylaw. I guess they have changed their tune. Different lies for different faces.
