NH/BB's: I'm flattered! Thanks!
ANyways, my guess is:
12% paycut including the 3% we just got,
One week vacation give back for those with five weeks and over.
Reduction of annual sick days accrual or the equivalent of not getting paid for a few each year.
Cabin Service elimination (if not, steeper paycuts for all)
Major reductions in Title II work.
The closure of one major overhaul facility.
the contracting out of a greater pct of overhaul work
the elimination of many shops in the overhaul base
new type of pension plan that will apply to ALL employees with the same formula
people 55 and over will stay with current pension plan. Those 55 and under will have a 401k plan with a few % company match.
loss of 2 holidays!
more cross utilization. mechanics to accomplish the work of title groups under it.
more drastic changes in medical plans with less options.
and, of course, major layoffs in all work groups as a result of work rule changes..
JUST a HUNCH THOUGH!
Of all the things that you've "HUNCHED" about, the one that I "hope" your most right about is the pension (age 55+)
Like everything else at AA,
TIME WILL TELL !!!!!1
