Workingman, we are all in our own way out for "me, me, me."
Here''s a question: Do management employees, when they are hired, sign a contract stating what their compensation will be? If they do, then in your Northwest example wouldn''t it be ILLEGAL for a company not to pay them if they reach their contract-delineated goals?
Life is not fair, workingman. We all just do the best that we can with the unfairness.

I agree we all are out for the ME at some time in our life but not all of us do that at the cost of anothers wages or anothers job.
A contract is a written or spoken agreement enforceable by law. I agree management did sign a contract with the company and so did all AAs employees that are in any union at AA. I do believe the unions renegotiate a contract at times over the years and the employees vote on the contract and that the management signs that contract also and that those union contracts are just as legal as the contracts the management have.
WXGuesser is it only ILLEGAL when a company breaks a contract with the top management and LEGAL to break it when the contract is with a union?
Oh I get it the top management are above the law they lie to the employees that already work for them, to the employees of a company they buy out, take jobs away from people, tell employees the company does not have enough money to operate and need givebacks from their unions but still have enough money to get their bonus, and tell lies or not the whole truth to congress that they need more money that the profits aren''t big enough. The goals of management have sure been met.
