please,please,please don't make the mistake between the IAM 141 and the IAM 141-M. We at the IAM 141 are happy to take the wage concessions and not everyone hates management. I am going to go out on a limb here and say I like the way Tilton is running things, I have put my faith in him from day 1. The IAM 141M has absolutely nothing to lose, like I said in my first response that they know their days are numbered. I asked one of our union reps the other day why is it that we as the csr's and res agents vote in the 6% pay cuts and then UNITED asks us to take a 13% pay cut we were never allowed to vote on it. Instead they lumped all of us together. Now have 13000 mechanics who are either disgruntled or will vote no looming over your head or now you have 34000 pissed off UNITED employees. I was mad they wouldn't let us vote, and as for what AA717DRIVER said. I guess I would be a scab for two reasons, 1) I want to continue to work in the airline industry for united or this new company. 2) I don't like unions and I don't like ours that is supposabley representing us right now. When your future is on the line you either 1, start looking for alternate employment or you keep up on company events and hope the company pulls through. I take number 2.
let me ask one more question here, do you really think our pilots would ever stay non-union? And for those who have responded already, if they didn't stay non-union but the rest of the airline did, would you guys still support us?
