I'm in agreement, it's a whore. By the posters own admission he was prostituting his position, 747 school and anger at Anderson, in exchange for employment to his personal gain. Are you reading this Delta? No doubt it's a living, not enough to brag about why you did it though.

Most of us exnwa ers still aren't making $116.000 a year. Don't mean mouth one who is. I did not have the stomach to go back inside if a recall would have been offered to me. I resigned in Nov 06. I had 20 years and very little debt. I was working for Kalitta at the time. I am retired now and enjoying it. I am still in touch with a lot of guys inside delta. All say it's better than not working, not real good or bad. Sometimes you just play the hand you're dealt and keep your mouth shut. If I were inside I would do my best to help myself and my honorable coworkers. So, the person who comments about someone prostituting themselves, you just need a better pimp because you are a bitter little person who hasn't figured out how to take care of themselves.

100,000 in a 401 in five years is not that great. Not worth selling your soul to the devil for. The co. Match must be pretty low.

Wow,
Delta paid you $116,000 last year and you get decent health insurance, vacation etc.
That sounds like a good paying job to this Honorable. I don't make that much, and most likely the average Honorable ExNWA doesn't either. Although when you read many postings on this site, you get the impression that the majority of Honorable strikers have been doing so much better after the strike than they did at NWA.

Anyway, good for you! You were not a scab, so why would anyone that visits this site give you a hard time because you wanted to return to work in aviation?

Yes the deltoid is a prostitute like whore. With the background of knowing what happened to his fellow co-workers with the lockout and Deltas involvement with it all along makes it a fact. And yes many are doing better then being a deltoid. I am still in Aviation and making far more then on the Delta plantation of scabs. And I can know I am an honorable who did not give aid to those who stabbed us in the back. Having Stockholm Syndrome and an ill gotten pay check is no excuse. It's no better then that scab of the day Carl Frasier. (aka Towbar, aka mouth of the south).

I had to reply to your comments: Delta resents anything Northwest had... EXCEPT The B747's !!! Delta immediately had our 6301, 6302 repainted & photo bombed all over their websites, media & intranet. And if you knew anything about the B747-400's you were a hero!!! FACT !! Even the fu_king scabs who had the B747-400 school & line release were treated like heroes at Delta. Made me puke to witness this as an Honorable! Then I decided to step back & rethink my position. I was back on the clock at Delta to only get back at Richard Anderson & Steenland, Lentch, Andy Robert's and the rest of The jack wagons who were part of the labor dispute / strike. Yes, I made $98,000.00 a year after rehiring as a Delta widget. Not to mention the $8,000.00 $12,000.00 and $18000.00 profit sharing I received. My 401k was over $100K in just 5 years. Got 'em ... with a big smile

Elaine Chao yes she was! (on the board of directors at NWA) It made me feel a bit sick at my stomach when I heard Trump had picked her. She is no friend to the common working class American, especially when affiliated with a union. Picking her sure isn't "draining the swamp".

If you start to believe everything that is said on the campaign trail, you are in trouble.


Same goes for union reps when you are out on strike (a reformed scab is better than a scab for life the scab re education program implemented after our strike failed) anything to keep their jobs

Trumps Labor Secretary
message ~

Trumps choice of labor secretary does not bode well for Southwest Airlines AMFA who have been in contract negotiations for four and a half years. Many feel she still has blood on her hands from the NWA Technician lockout of 05 and how she turned a blind eye to labor issues and airline safety during that time. Was she not on the board of NWA at one time?

I believe the person that said that Bill was disappointed in the outcome. The only problem was that he was young and green and did not possess a backbone. If he was a real man, he could have stood up to that little sawed-off Andy Roberts and demanded that they negotiate instead of screwing us. They all let that little prick run the show.

"It's a little hard to scab in Atlanta when there is no maintenance operation"

So he's just a back stabbing buddy f****r? No longer a scab?


[switch to blue font] lol. Really? C'mon man? Where did this scab, scab? The point is to the original poster, Atlanta was no leader in righteousness ---------------------------------------

-Mr. Webmaster: Love the site. Thanks for allowing the Atlanta discussion. All the stories are true. [Really rich guys getting richer at the expense of worker bee's] I get that the greedy motivated merger was going to happen. Most [most] American companies do not treat their employee's to the degree Anderson did with such disdain and merely a hinder to even more obscene wealth, but they did. Atlanta was just the largest out station, period. I like to feel the years of laying off mechanics and forcing next day clock in moves to far away stations, all at employee expense and time are something St. Peter will question in time.

subject ~ Bill Lentsch
message ~

Not sure we would believe anything that Mr. Lentsch told you.

I am not saying that things would not have went worse for AMFA but I can at that I personally had three conversations the day the negotiation were going on and I found that Bill was VERY discouraged with the outcome of the negotiations. I do feel that this may have been his first test of his career and whomever was negotiating on the AMFA side soured his taste. I am not saying one way or the other on how events may have been communicated by AMFA reps.

I know how to read a person and he was pretty much disgusted with the outcome, to the point of disbelief.

I do not work there anymore and that is a fact, I do know that he had no sympathy for AMFA at the end of the day. I was standing right outside the break room by the onsite Credit Union office across from the inspection office when I had the conversations. If anyone know the Base they now exactly where I stood.

Bill was new on the block and I am sure he wanted to impress his boss. Being a little green in his position, I believe he told me way more than he should have.

I was not there during the negotiations but People can say what they want but I think that some of the professionalism of the union was lost in his eyes. I knew Bill Lentsch when I was in MSP and he was just an engineer. We had many conversations through the years when I was a lead, when you grow up with a person and communicate on a level playing field, people are more open to talk knowing that the conversation is between yourselves.

I have no reason to lie and nothing to gain by doing so.

We are not calling you a liar, just stating an opinion, that one may not want to believe a man who partakes in the destruction of a union on the property.  Mr Lentsch was a smooth talker, but remember one thing, he was defiantly a "company" man.  One does not rise to his level so fast by being an advocate of a union person. Just saying.

subject ~ Atlanta Base Closing 2002
message ~

Just my opinion but I believe the outcome against AMFA would have been the same even if an agreement to convert the hanger to a a319/a320 base had been made. There was also an EPA issue with the hanger as well. At that time the Delta merger was still going on in the back ground and not yet announced. It had been planned for many years prior to our lockout in 2005. So in 2002 without a doubt Delta ( future Scabair) was the puppet master deciding the fate of us all in Atlanta at that time. One way or another AMFA would be made into the fall guy and the techs would suffer from it. I was in ATL for 24 years and would have liked to have seen the base upgraded like many would have but I don't think it all hinged on a recall of five people. That ultimate decision no doubt came from Delta HQ on our fate behind the scenes. That's why Anderson bowed out and Steeland (rat face) was inserted to be the hatchet man to oversee the dirty work. Then Anderson reappeared after the dust settled as the new CEO. No doubt Delta helped finance NWA in the 110 million spent on rounding up, training buying tools for, transporting and putting into place the scabs that showed up like cockroaches in 2005. Add to that the media spin put on the whole event. That's just my thought on it and do believe Delta was a controlling factor in the shadows all along to get our Union off the property no matter what AMFA did or did not agree to. Honorable 444.

Atlanta? You might say he drained the swamp...444


I am often troubled by this subject since I was in Atlanta at the time. I had a long conversation with Bill over the decision to close the base. I remember that they wanted to convert the base to A319/320 hangars in the future. Bill said to me that he could not believe that the union would not agree to the deal because 5 people were on layoff and needed to comeback before an agreement was made (union demands). He also said that they would get called back over time easier than the alternative.

He clearly stated that they would close the base if that agreement was not made. He said it would be the long term vision for the base. He said that this agreement would take the base from old aircraft DC-9 to new aircraft A-320.

My job outcome was based on what AMFA's direction was going to be. He also said to me that it amazed him that those 5 people were going to cost the whole base's jobs if it was not agreed upon. It did.

I spoke with him through out the day and they had tried many times to get an agreement.

I know from his conversation that once the last offer was refused, his opinion of negotiations changed significantly that day.

Shortly afterward the base was closed and I was laid off as with 100's of others.

I received no follow up or support from the company or any union once I was out the door. I was simply gone.

Not sure we would believe anything that Mr. Lentch told you.
