after you get your CBA, vote out your union. Then there remains no CBA. Then vote in another union in one year and after the company emerges from bankruptcy with $billions of loan guarantees, your negotiations power increases.
Further, the process of mediation could drag on for 4 years before a colling off period, but it would be a 6 year head start
If the IAM doesn''t get the mechanics any better of a deal, then the CBA won''t have any stock in itself because even non-union mechanics will be making more, and there are no protections.
Dave risk losing even an imposed CBA if he cuts deeper. Once the company emerges from BK with $billion dollars from the government, a CBA would be dropped with a decert.
Not surprisingly, this is what is being passed around by some mechanics who support AMFA. Interesting.
