subject ~ Start at the bottom - the union negotiated it
message ~

It amazes me here when I read some of you people complaining that a company wants to start you at the bottom of the pay scale no matter your experience. A lot of you are union supporters as well. Well, you can blame your fellow mechanics, and the UNION who voted in this type of system back in the 70's when they voted in a B scale wage. If the Union mechanics wanted to make a system that was good for ALL and not just themselves, then they would have created a system that would pay new employees based on experience.

This is just one more example of how the unions don't give a rats a$$ about doing what's right - only doing what's good for the UNION, and the union members only doing what's good for them - even at the expense of others.

Looks like that mentality came back and bit some of the older guys in the a$$.

US Pension Insurer Ran Record $62B Deficit in 2014

Can't tell how many times I have been told that our pension is "guaranteed".

Can't tell how many times I've been told that our pensions are underfunded (even back in the "good old days"), however we keep getting paid...


Ya, so what's your point?? You're getting paid because you are in the front of the line. People like me who can't collect for another 10 years might not have anything to collect from because the pension is "UNDERFUNDED".

Rest assured, dick & co. would love to dump our pensions! For now, it seems that we are "safe", but as time goes on , that may very well change. Heard NWA tried to bail out & dump the pensions on PBGC during the "bankruptcy" (not sure if this true, tho) Seems the PBGC would take on the pensions if NWA were to liquidate all assets to fund the deal...we all know THAT was not part of the plan. Again, this may be be unfounded rumors, but it does seem likely, knowing the pricks involved!

If we recall correctly, that was one of the bargaining chips used against the pilots.  It would have affected them more than any other group, because of the cap limits on what the PBGC could pay out.

This just popped up on my email. I know them. The description makes it look like they're a first class mx operation. The big joke is "Bachelor's degree preferred." You start at the bottom scale whether you had 20+ years 320 time and all the extras. You're treated like a low life. All the other depts got a bonus this year, except tech ops. Nearly all the techs bitch and moan about their situation big time and if you try and get a card drive for a union, it stops there. Pilots and F/A's are union. Ramp just voted in the IAM this July. Good luck getting a CBA. Remember their slogan, "If provoked, they'll strike (a deal)."

Ronnie the ATL rat and scab Cannon used as an excuse "it was a lost cause" for his excuse. Just couldn't see standing out there any longer holding a sign. To all who knew him: Just be glad he wasn't in the military.

What a piece of work ol' terry is ! Hard to believe he may still be employed @ scabair, could only happen if delta hired even dumber management to replace stevie may & ronnie toward. We never really knew terry had a major problem with alcohol until he came to work sober one day ! Sounds like a great joke, but it wouldn't be nearly so humorous if wasn't actually TRUE..& that's no sh*t ! Yep, terry ("stormy") another fine example of the low class criminal sh*tbirds that took our jobs & sold their souls. Scab is forever....just like being a c*cks*cker !

paul hughes was mad at AMFA for making him become a SCAB. paul, you had the heart of a SCAB before you ever grew that cute pony-tail and signed an AMFA card. paul, your heart is ugly. How do you look yourself in the face. Shame on you.

Does anyone have a list of scabs that got shown the door at the evil empire?

This post got me thinking about doug deDuc. He was one of the early SCABS. Not that all SCABS didn't hurt us, but the early ones with NWA experience had more impact than the Ethiopians or whatever they were.

Well, doug finally crawled off kim one afternoon and decided he was too good to work with the vermin he had become. He resigned his SCAB job but kept the title for life.

doug was so proud of his french/canadian heritage that was bestowed on him by his ancestors. Now look what he left his family that follows. doug leDuc....a sad SCAB.

US Pension Insurer Ran Record $62B Deficit in 2014

Can't tell how many times I have been told that our pension is "guaranteed". I talked to many people about this in my early years at NWA trying to get a matching 401k instead of the pension, but the IAM and a lot of members kept telling me, "oh no! we don't want that. We want a pension cause its guaranteed". I sure hate saying that they were a bunch of idiots for thinking that but facts are facts.


Yeah, and remember Guy Cook? We got a 401K but didn't want any matching. Bargin that way for some other crumb. Guy's ramp folks will never really get into saving in a 401.....

I wonder if a scab occasionally looks around at his fellow scabs and thinks to himself, "if I had stayed Honorable these guys would have stabbed me in the back".

When it comes to government, nothing is "guaranteed".
