that has always wanted to negotiate in good faith and avoid a disruption of any kind. They started last October, and only just got the actual proposed pay cut amounts last month from NWA.
It was the company
who was unwilling to negotiate in good faith, and would rather have gone the lockout/strike route in order to bust the union.
Seems all we see on this site is constant union bashing, always saying the unions are greedy and don't care about the company's best interest, yadda yadda yadda. Clearly, that is NOT the case at NWA. UA
mechanics didn't want a strike either, and were able to secure the best deal possible under the circumstances.
I applaud both the union and the mediator for more talks to continue in orer to secure a deal, similar to what was reached between AMFA and UAL. No one wants a strike, and it's in everyone's best interest to negotiate in good faith to deal with the issues at hand and ensure that the company will move forward and reduce its cost to be competitive. I hope for all involved that there is no strike or any kind of disruption of any kind at NWA this summer or down the road. At the end of the day, it's a team effort that keeps the airline operating smoothly and efficiently.
And the winner for best actress is....REESE WITHERSPOON for 'Walk the Line'!!!!!!!!
