Metro, more 1/2 truth. From my brother who flies at AMR, APA was slapped with that fine when its 2 leaders, Mahew and Lavoy, got cross-wise with Federal Judge Kendall and they and the whole APA were held in contempt. There was no trial or jury award. APA couldnt assess non-members. The fine was never paid as APA and AMR reached an agreement after Mahew and Lavoy got voted out. Any comparison is ridiculous. If dont believe me ask your "buddy." So name 1 trial award where the rank and file was forced to pay DFR damages.
So why all the anger? Why not just let this unfold in court instead of flamethrowing on this chat?
My point about AMR is that it clearly IS Possible for the members of a union be held liable for their actions...financially liable. A liability issued by a Federal Judge no less. You guys have misunderstood, and underestimated how this process was going to go from day 1. Now, with the same smug certainty that you displayed while hiding behind the NMB, you're saying that the Judge "can never touch any of us". Guess again. You've been wrong about everything else here, why stop now?
As far as anger, that should be self evident. Vindictive anger oozes from the pores of USAPA...so I return the question, why so angry? I'll as you again at the end of the first week in May if you're harboring any new found anger.
