You got to be kidding me. How come the percentages of cuts were less than the rampers? How come we don't have at least a magic number (85)for retirement? I had my 401k with company contribution of 6% to base plus company match. Now I have IAM pension that I don't get credit for until starting Jan.1, 2003!, and the only thing going into my 401k is what I put in. You have a pension and part of what they were putting in your 401k is going to your pension. Yeah right, a rampers union. The mechanics didn't even want us in their union. They were so pissed when the rampers came into the fold that they kicked us out of the local. Now there is 141 and 141M. Remember M in IAM stands for MECHANIC.----------------

Ironically enough, among the mechanics the IAM is viewed as a rampers union.
