I feel sorry for the people that were injured or hurt.

It made me smile to see the arrogant airline finally earning the publicity it deserves.

Maybe they can get a few more billions from the gov't.

subject ~ right to work
message ~

I think some of you are confusing right to work and at will employment. "At will" means the employee and the employer have no contract...the employee can be terminated at anytime for any reason, and the employee can also quit at will for any reason. "Right to work" is a little different because it describes the employees ability to work for a company and not be obligated to join the union. As examples Michigan is a right to work state and Minnesota is a forced union state.
Not surprising that most southern states are right to work.

Only if it's in the contract that the union has the right to have the company fire you, if you don't pay union dues. You could have a "open shop" in a non right to work state. I know people that worked for a company with a union that didn't have that in their contract. The union can not force the company to fired them.

I believe the fat disgusting POS scabbed the 1st day, was one of the original 12 in MSP. I stood picket duty at C bldg. and watched the scab prick drive out each day (in the middle lane). He always had some sneaky little worm with him, they just looked ahead.

I know he was in the Marine Corps but please, give us a break on that one. The Marines couldn't help what they always took in. Scum like Rowe would have turned traitor on us just like he did to our union strike. The big difference there is - Rowe and scabs like him knew they had little danger of repercussions from the membership. They knew they were safe, so WTF! He might have been fragged in the "suck".

Everyone in America has a right to work. however, I don't see anywhere that a company is required to give work to anyone. If I own a business, I should be allowed to hire and fire the people I choose. What gives a worker the "right" to work???? If you don't like the company, don't work for them. If they are willing to pay you for your time, then its UP TO YOU to decide if the money is worth working for them. If not, you don't have a "right" to have the company pay you more.

I completely understand the employer's point of view. However, At Will when used correctly... meaning breaks no law, like discrimination laws... removes anyone's legal right to continue working a job even where they've done nothing wrong. At Will legally gives the employer the right to fire anyone for any reason. When applied right At Will language completely overrides any and all policies written in a company's employee handbook. Meaning you have no way to defend yourself, your reputation, or your opportunity to remain gainfully employed. The growing use of At Will employment is a dangerous trend that could lead to a tremendous number of people and especially the over forty crowd finding themselves unemployed. I am not saying that unions are the only way to correct this, I am saying that AT WILL completely favors the employer and leaves all of use with no legal means to protect "your right to work". Right to work laws mean you can not be forced to join a union. You have the legal right to work union or not. At Will removes any and all labor protections you think you might have. When the employer can fire you for "No Good Cause" you have no labor protection whatsoever. Discrimination, unsafe working conditions, unfair promotions, illegal work ethic, etc... "no good cause" puts the burden of proof on the ex-employee's shoulders and if you do not have undisputable documentation showing a labor law violation you are SOL.

"If I own a business, I should be allowed to hire and fire the people I choose".

If you own a business, you also have legal responsibility's to those you hire. At Will employment provides a fairly easy path around any employee, who is even only perceived to be someone who might rock the boat. At Will puts all the power on one side, and the increasing trend of At Will employment paints a very dangerous future.

Don't you think we have beaten this dead horse enough?

Not true. Grow old in service and you can be let go for (no good cause) and there is nothing you can do about. Have a personality conflict with the boss and you can be let go for (no good cause). In my case I asked to be released from my depart to take advantage of an opening in another department, and I was let go for (no good cause). My boss said if you don't work for me you won't work here. As long as they don't fire you for protected items like discrimination or union card drive etc... There is nothing you can do... it is AT WILL, and nothing in their employee handbook over ride's THE AT WILL. So even though you love the job now, in the future they could dump you AT ANYTIME for (NO GOOD CAUSE). You have no security AT ALL.

All you "at will" critics crack me up. I was in a union job - so was I NOT at will??? Weird, because I no longer have that job. Instead, I have been an "at will" employee for the last 9 years and I love it. If I do my job the way they pay me to do it, I will keep it. If I'm a slug like a bunch of union guys I worked with, then they will probably let me go. ITS MY CHOICE.

Those who think that a union job is the only job to work are really brainwashed. But, to each his own and if that's what you think, then go get a union job. I'll take my non-union job and work peacefully. Good thing I have a CHOICE.

There's a pair of worthless, knee pad wearing, non-fuselage working, scabs for you. Scab Rowe, your drill instructors would be real proud to know you are now a worthless scab. No pride, no ribbons and no spine. I always suspected you would be one of Madonni's sweet 16 BOYS. Do you and Madonni hold hands while you are on your knees servicing those Delta managers? Holding hands while you two scabs get bent over because that is all you can do correctly? Remember you volunteered. Larry Manno, a really good example of aircraft mechanic. I went to Teterboro School of Aeronautics with Scab Manno. I worked at Lockheed California Company with Scab Manno and he was pretty much useless there too. A shining example of how a future scab looks. Just remember you pair of ass wipes, I will hate you until the day you die. After you are dead and they put you in the ground and it feels a little wet, it is not raining, it will be me and a bunch of other honorable AMFA mechanics pissing on your grave. I hope both of you ass wipes rot in hell.........444club, yogi......... PS. Both of you scab ass wipes know who I am and you better see me before I see you.

So you're saying there aren't any back stabbers and suckasses in a union shop? NWA was union and it was full of backstabbers (scabs) and suckasses (manager's buddies).

Nwa made sure of that by passing these people on their probation. They f'd the union by having them have to fight for their jobs. 2 It F'd the union during negotiations by making us all look bad. 3 It give nwa high betting odds when push came to shoving us out the door.
Class and craft destroyed unions, and At Will ends any job security one might think they have.

A Union is only as strong as its members. Nwa knew this and deliberately diluted the membership with their suckasses. That's the beauty of Class and Craft, and that's why the DOL made the ruling to disallow any new professional unions. At Will is employment festers more suckassing and backstabbing and gives the company full power over its (Human Capital). People are no longer ... Personal... they are now a resource to be used as needed, and sent down the waist drain for the rest of the world to deal with. If you are working At Will, you have absolutely No Rights to Work. At Will is at their Pleasure, the investment and sacrifice you put into a job counts for nothing. Think about that the next you working OT rather than enjoying time with your family.

A good company does not need a union, a bad company causes Unions. Bad company's change the world, good company's hardly get noticed. The world is always changing. Why is That?

I don't know about you, but when I was born I wasn't promised a life of prosperity. I was taught core values (honesty, hard work, selflessness) at a young age so I don't feel that I'm entitled to anything special. My father grew up during the Great Depression and my mother grew up in Europe during WWII. If I do get sick, or "lose favor" as you put it, I will survive because morally strong people do. Remember, we'll all die some day and we can't take anything material with us.


I grew up the same time, the same way, and the same values. However, I believe the guy who signs the check should not be exempt from the same values. I do not support Unions keeping worthless workers on the job, but it was not the unions who cause this to happen, it was the DOL ruling that disallowed new professional unions in favor of Class and Craft. Under Class and Craft as long as you pay your dues you get the full service of the union. Unlike the Professional Unions where you had to complete an apprenticeship before the union would except you as a member. Class and Craft destroyed a union's power to police itself and is the direct cause for people turning their backs on unions. The power elite's gross misuse of (Human Capital) during the rail road expansion era, caused people to rethink the value of their work and the sacrifice made to do their work.

(honesty, hard work, selflessness)

Should never be repaid with the power to put a human being... out to pasture as if they are no better than a beast of burden. Honesty, Hard Work, and Selflessness, should never be repaid with Selfishness'! At Will employment provides a fast path straight back to the days of the Robber Barons, where once again history will repeat itself.

Note to the Robber Barons; Remember, we'll all die some day and we can't take anything material with us.

The poster that I originally responded to was saying "at will" is ALWAYS a dead end job. I gave my example to prove it's not true. We reap what we sow....work hard and get a reputation for being a hard worker and the good employers will find you. I hope the rest of you honorable find good employment like I did.

Happy for you, but if anything in your life changes where you can't work hard, get sick, have to take time off, or you lose favor... your job could end tomorrow. As long as the employer does not discriminate against you, you have no recourse.

No Sh*t! I work at an "At Will" company and it's the best job I've ever had in my life! The secret to keeping an "at will" job is to do one very simple thing, perform the task you were hired to do. Would you keep a slug on payroll if you owned a company? I doubt it, I know I wouldn't. The only people that can't keep a job are the bums and deadbeats the union had to carry at NWA.

So what your saying is the at will company called Delta has no slugs? Go figure..

Well, that's a "go figure" quote. There are more outhouse scabs that if it was an at will company, they would have been gone. I don't get it. DL is the most union, non union company in reference to the nw scabs they inherited. Some couldn't pour water out of their boots if the directions were printed on the bottoms of them. Why do they keep these people? Honorable inside know what I'm saying. Go figure....

They keep them there for the very same reason they crossed that picket line. It is called labor dilution and labor insurance.

I never gave management enough credit for having the intelligence to hire such people for such a reason but I do now. It worked out for them. The scum was always there, ready to be used. Management knew it owned everyone it needed to own, i.e. The White House on down. When it got down to tactics, the weak, lame and lazy were right in place ready to go to work for management. Management knew it and took full advantage of the trash we worked along side.

Read the contract on Delta's website. Delta is required to abide by the retirement language of the AMFA contract. I am not familiar enough with all of the language in order to give you advice. I do know that it gets complicated for the members who were younger at the time of the strike. The above information gives the location of the summary plan information (the contract retirement language)

We worked with low rent types that thought he was low rent. Stewart Avenue! Nasty dirty looking always walking around pissed off about something or another. Did I say he worked all the OT he could work still didn't have a dime saved after 25 years? Yes I did. Didn't even try to stay out on strike one day, not one f**king day. There he is today a Delta professional, still close to Stewart Avenue, still looks the same. That is proof it is NOT the same Delta we once knew.

message ~

Anyone know anything about starting up a web page where people can come and tell their stories about how they were mistreated while working an "AT WILL" job? I think it is past time for At will employees to record publicly how bad it is working without any protection whatsoever. Right to work laws, and At Will employment have completely removed a person's right too steady long term employment. Under AT WILL you can be let go for any reason as long as it is not one of a very few protected - illegal clause. And even if it is illegal the ex-employee has to be able to prove it or it is nothing more than hearsay. We need a web domain where people can record their case, and labor lawyers can review the complaints and contact the wronged party. Think of it as an ambulance chaser's job page. Somehow, someway the American working man need's away to fight back. As it stands right now... if you are not working under some kind of contract... your job can end at anytime with absolutely no recourse. There isn't one person reading this web page that hasn't been Fk'd over by corporate America, and we need to brain storm on how to get what we deserve... Fair treatment for fair labor. Come-on people... if a hungry lawyer can find a place where he can make money he is going to go there. All we need to do is provide that place, and record the war stories from those who are living it. Any idea's on how to do this sure as hell can't hurt!! We have kept the names of the Scabs alive this long, we sure as hell can fix what we're dealing with now! We are aircraft mechanics our entire lives have been about protecting others, now it is time to fix the sh*t and protect those who can't protect themselves!

Agreed, That is exactly my point. Somehow the very foundation that built this country has become a negative. Why? Because big money bought air time and constantly portrayed unions as anti American, corrupt, communists, organization intent on destroying The American Free Market. In other words... Corporate America had rules to abide by and were not free to exploit anything and everything in the name of profit. Bottom line... Good companies do not need unions, bad companies create unions. With what we see going on today... The Koch Brothers, 2008 companies & Banks to big to fail, we need the revolutionary united mindset more now then ever. That mindset built this country, and corporate America's anti union mindset is tearing the country apart. In a country made up of United States no one group should be allowed to place its priorities above the rest. At Will employment was made a law to stop the practice of indentured servants, it was not meant to be use as a disciplinary tool for big business. Over the years, corporate America has perverted AT WILL into Free Will to do anything they want about your rights to work. When a company can terminate your job " For No Good Cause"... you have No Right To Work!

Since you mention the Koch Brothers, you must also mention people like George Soros too.  The door swings both ways.  BTW, if you have enough support, unions can be formed at any level and at any industry.

Anyone know anything about starting up a web page where people can come and tell their stories about how they were mistreated while working an "AT WILL" job? I think it is past time for At will employees to record publicly how bad it is working without any protection whatsoever. Right to work laws, and At Will employment have completely removed a person's right too steady long term employment. Under AT WILL you can be let go for any reason as long as it is not one of a very few protected - illegal clause. And even if it is illegal the ex-employee has to be able to prove it or it is nothing more than hearsay. We need a web domain where people can record their case, and labor lawyers can review the complaints and contact the wronged party. Think of it as an ambulance chaser's job page. Somehow, someway the American working man need's away to fight back. As it stands right now... if you are not working under some kind of contract... your job can end at anytime with absolutely no recourse. There isn't one person reading this web page that hasn't been Fk'd over by corporate America, and we need to brain storm on how to get what we deserve... Fair treatment for fair labor. Come-on people... if a hungry lawyer can find a place where he can make money he is going to go there. All we need to do is provide that place, and record the war stories from those who are living it. Any idea's on how to do this sure as hell can't hurt!! We have kept the names of the Scabs alive this long, we sure as hell can fix what we're dealing with now! We are aircraft mechanics our entire lives have been about protecting others, now it is time to fix the sh*t and protect those who can't protect themselves!
