Re: AA gets permanent injunction against mechanics union

Who is he to decide, anyway? Let the members vote, and let the chips fall where they may! The International President, that’s who is and it’s up to him, GVP Sito Pantoja’s decision. You've just confirmed that under the Association, the membership has no say in the direction of their careers. Good j...

Re: Delta allegedly lobbying against new FAA rest rule for cabin crew

The MIT Airline Data project proves you wrong. WN, UA and AA outpace their DL counterparts on total compensation.

And they don’t have a Social Security offset like DL dies upon retirement

Only thing DL has better is profit sharing.

Re: AA gets permanent injunction against mechanics union

Samuelson stated in DFW at a rally for UNITE , he will not agree nor sign a concessionary contract. A contract that pays everyone more is not Concessionary! A contract that cost the company a lot more is not Concessionary. Why must unions lie? There is more to a contract than pay. AA wants to outso...

Re: AA gets permanent injunction against mechanics union

AA doesn’t cater line LSG, at five LUS’ stations US delivers the food, drink, ice etc. they don’t prepare meals like LSG does. At the five stations LSG only prepares the meals.

Re: AA gets permanent injunction against mechanics union

This was this morning. So he'll have a choice to make: He can either not let the membership vote, or the Assoc. will absorb any fines coming. Meanwhile, all the chest-thumpers get to sign letters swearing to play nice. That's a tough spot to to be in. AA has not asked for any fines nor has the Judg...

Re: AA gets permanent injunction against mechanics union

AA’s mechanics are taking OT and field trips, there was one last week for an MD80 Engine Change.

And once again, they can’t be forced to work OT.

That was then, this is now Boof.

Look for an agreement to vote that bypasses any recommendations by the NC coming soon.

This was this morning.

Don’t know who Boof is?

Re: AA gets permanent injunction against mechanics union

[ Furthermore, and much more concerning, with such an open ended order, the court clown/judge has given the American boardroom carteblanche to flog their mechanics - which can only end up in one inevitable conclusion - a tired man or woman misses something and lives are put at risk. AA doesn't enfo...

To this day AA has not disciplined one mechanic for a slowdown.

Re: AA gets permanent injunction against mechanics union

And the Association will NOT agree to arbitration, the IAM nor the TWU has never agreed to it in the airlines. The APA and the APFA both lost their CBA arbitration in negotiations.

Re: AA gets permanent injunction against mechanics union

Neither the IAM US CBA nor the TWU AA CBA contain language for mandatory overtime. Overtime is a member’s choice. And yet plenty of other CBAs contain mandatory OT language when the operation has critical needs. Just like anything else, it’s something that can and will be negotiated. Company hasn’t...

Talked to my JFK AA AMTs, Airbus haven’t been to JFK to inspect the A321T. It sits stored.

Re: AA Fleet Updates - 2019

The wing might be bent. While entirely speculative, airframe integrity should be easy to confirm by Airbus engineers, or other airframe experts. Wouldn't you think that would be the first action AA would take before undertaking any repairs...and before simply parking the aircraft? Not speculative, ...
