This whole thing seems like the NW mechanics trying to shoot themselves in the foot.

Hey, ummm, no...Northwest has backed the mechanics in between a rock and a hard place...like I've said millions (it seems) of times, it's not a pay issue, it's a jobs issue. The mechanics might be upset with the 20% paycut, but they would probably accept it. It's the 53% of the employees that would be getting fired that they are having the problem with. The only thing the Northwest Mechanics are doing that is stupid is even bothering to stay at the table when Doug "Chainsaw" Steenland has no interest in an agreement.

It nearly seems that the Mechanics are trading a 53% reduction in jobs for a 100% reduction.....
Looks like the union leaders are winning again!

Do you have nothing better to do than report on NWA? Guess NWA did something to piss you off.

IMHO, I think it will come down to the 11th hr and 59min, but either negotiations will continue or an agreement will be reached. I really don't see a strike.
