If there was no one station agreement and the show was on the other foot and dfw was closing and afw knew it would they agree to a one station agreement? No they would not, the closing sucks but it is what it is. The juniority system has been on place for over 50 years at aa. What does suck is when the international cuts deals and screws the membership.
The international cut 2 deals in the last 2 layoffs. 1 happened when the hangar shut down at AFW and the second happened when TAESL shut down. Both happened with 591s knowledge and the 1st layoff happened with lorenzi helping Kevin Lyons get the people to DWH that he wanted. It doesn't matter how you look at it there are people on the street,forced to retire,forced to move their famlies or commuting against their will because the TWU international did not want to follow the CONTRACT. If a person gets screwed because of the contract that is the luck of the draw. If you get screwed by somebody cutting a deal so that they can help someone else or a buddy of there's then that is a different story and that is wrong and the history of the twu.
