Hey a big shout out to you grezzie POS Cilibrasi. In my opinion, no lower scum than you. Became a scab the 1st day, that's right you couldn't find work. I bet you are fatter and dumpier than ever.

About 45 percent of cost of the bill’s tax cuts would go to households with incomes above $500,000 (fewer than 1 percent of filers). About 38 percent of the bill’s cost would go to tax cuts for households with incomes over $1 million (about 3 out of every 1,000 filers).[2]

Did you hit the wrong key?

10 minute strike
message ~

I care to differ with you. The strike you are referring to was Republic. The year I believe was 1984. And I agree that Republic's benefits far out weighted the wage increase we received. The contract were called brown book nwa, white book Republic

Right after the merger with republic, in .DTW, I was told who the, "Ten minute scabs" we're. From a Duck old timer, And I really didn't know the details. Still don't.............?

message ~

The Minnesota Twins vs the Atlanta Braves, World Series 1991 was an exciting week at NWA. Someone stenciled a tomahawk on the DC9 flying up to Minneapolis then Minneapolis flights returned to Atlanta with “Twins” stenciled on the aircraft. The stenciling continued onto the overhead bin doors with hot dogs being served on the ATL-MSP flights. We chanted and banged or beat on any thing as a drum. It got extremely loud in the hanger and thankfully it only lasted a week. Good times at work. Good memories.

Remember, it is hangar, not hanger.

For the Republic employees living in MSP maybe it was bearable. For the rest of the stations it sucked all the way to the end!

subject ~ ME TOO:)???

Republic
message ~

Never had a strike. Was a “ME TO” workforce. Were known as always complaining about everything. Rode on the Back of NWA contracts and strikes.


I guess you are certainly entitled to your opinion, but I would not call Republic people "me too" ("too not to" by the way) contracts.
Republic mechanics did not make the hourly wage that NWA mechanics made. Our contract book certainly didn't copy the Red Ass contract. We didn't make the hourly wage but we had scads of benefits that no NW mechanic ever dreamed of achieving. We had payoff of sick leave at retirement, we had medical coverage until we reached Medicare age, we had paid lunches just to name a few.
I will be the first to admit we didn't have the adversarial relationship with our management that NW folks had. You all had to fight for the air you breathed, which makes me wonder why you would have wanted to work under such conditions for such a company.

Sure many bitched, we didn't apply at Redass. That merger/buyout whatever you want to call it was like Russia buying the United States.

subject ~ " to support the flight attendants?"
message ~

That was north central not republic that had a 10 min strike. NWA mechs always struck so that the ramp would get a better contract. Nwa's other employee groups always crossed the picket line and preformed struck work. Pilots, stews, managers.
For a blue state their labor unions always sucked.

Keith Hubertus a MSP tech let a DTW scab live with him while he was out on strike. So the guy (Hubertus) is out on the picket line while his DTW buddy is in MSP scabbing Hubertus's picket line, and he is letting the guy live with him. Now I swear I didn't make this up. You can't make sh*t like this up, it happened... Go figure huh???:) true story...
