GURU

All things rise and fall on leadership or the lack there of it''s the reason we find our self in this mess because we have none, at either the company or union level both are attempting to look out for their best interrest not ours!

Thats why many say AMFA NOW and Carty must go!!

This direct quote from our illustrious leader as appeared in a Reuters Financial Newswire Interview
with Johnathan Peters on Sunday, March 30th.

The title of the story was

How can 9/11 and the Iraqi War be Good for the Airlines?

According to American Airlines CEO Don Carty,

As bad as it is, this is the turning point for the industry. We have been plagued for years by employee unions with all their threats...basically, they held all the power by threatening to strike which ultimately cost us, the airline industry, a tremendous amount of money and profits.

Now we, the airline industry, hold all the cards.... we can simply threaten to file for bankruptcy, and the entire work force becomes tumultuous.... they in turn harass their protective unions into giving us what we''ve ultimately wanted from the beginning of this great industry....... NO Unions!

======================================

We need to boycott all the companies that Don carty and his cronnies sit on until Don carty and the others are removed from the AA board.

Sears-Lowes and Home Depot and even WalMart sells life time tools.

Transfer CITI bank card balances to other cards or pay them off and quit using them. Aetna refinance with someone else. Dell computers, buy Gateway

Get Crandell back!! They don''t want him because the first thing he will do is GET rid of excess management.

I have heard for years that the problem with TWU is the membership. That a union is only as strong as its membership. Well, Leadership reflects attitude. As long as TWU leadership keeps looking out for their own best interest before the good of the union then the rank-n-file will continue to do the same.

I checked out that Reuter''s interview with Jonathon Peters last week. There was no interview and Jonathon Peters does not exist.

Things needs to be checked out thoroughly before posting.

For better or for worse, this is an internet HOAX. Reuters has denied that any such interview has been published.

First of all, it''s Crandall for all of you who don''t even know how to spell the chairman emeritus''s name.

Second of all, you think you''re getting screwed by the current management?... I shudder to think how Bob would have handled things. Y''all think that leaving the dance with someone other than the one that brung ya is going to be a better deal. I disagree.

Time to face facts, folks. Crandall isn''t going to be coming back.

My personal opinion: I think the world of Crandall, but if you think for one minute that he''d have waited until February to start demanding work rule changes, you''re very, very wrong. Crandall would have been asking the day after UAL''s bankruptcy filing, and it wouldn''t have been very pretty...

Get rid of Carty? That''s an empty bag argument, because there simply aren''t a lot of others who could better right now. UAL looked for six months before finding Glenn Tilton, and in retrospect, he''s turned out to be the little engine that couldn''t. If you think that the pickings are a whole lot better just six months later...

Why aren''t there other senior executives jumping at the opportunity to head up airlines? Because all of the good executives everywhere else have retention agreements in their contracts...

It was rumored that one of our current VP''s was in the running for the CEO job at UAL six months ago. He probably would have done a great job. Instead of flopping around like a beached trout the way Tilton/Brace/Hacker have been, this person would be taking advantage of every weakness we have, and molding UAL into the carrier it could be.

eolesen,

Another reason it would be hard to find a good Carty replacement is because most people qualified for that position have retention bonuses with their current companies.
