I would suggest that NW take take what the machinists have offered. I have heard that NW has "scabs" ready to take up the workload and;though,I do not believe that there are enough to cover every city. I will guarantee that there will be significant maint delays if other union airlines technicians are forced to work on their a/c. If NW is successful in breaking their union;then,I foresee other carriers trying to go the "all contract maint" route to further cut costs where there has been too much in the last decade. I have seen the difference in work quality on an airplane that will possibly be transporting him/her or their family members vs. Laborers that will not likely even fly on that particular aircraft ...ever.

It is very true that mx personnel work is of higher qaulity when done on the planes that they "own" so to speak. If they are successful is breaking the union here, is there a reputable company which can do the mx for them without sacraficing qaulity? I sure don't think so.

More bad news as the mechanics have reached an impasse. 30 day cooling off period begins today and ends August 19.

Brace yourselves.
