You didn't venture far from your heritage, 1st day of the strike, hands in the air, white flag. Walking in like the creep you are. Years prior to the strike "the little woman" was dumbfounded as to why I would even speak to you. Being somewhat of a racist she didn't even consider you a white man, she considered you quite inferior, a bottom feeder. In relation to her attitude I just went along to get along. Now years later I can see that "the little woman" had far more insight regarding her opinion of you than I ever did. Turns out that was one thing that she was right about. For someone who didn't even really know you, who judged you from your public presentation, she was spot on in her opinion of you...

Believing that is the reason our gov never fixed the immigration problem. Corporate America counts on always having leverage over the workers. What better way than to have the worlds downtrodden waiting in the wings.


Agree! And you will always have a certain amount of scum within your own ranks...

We didn't do It the airlines did. When the FAA said "go ahead send the work away" the FAA A&P became a cost the airlines could do without. And the mechanic is not the only person the airline did away with. Today, unless you work at a main hub, the employees working the aircraft are contract help rushing from one airline to the next. Also the people cleaning your airplane, repositioning the airplane on the ramp, and doing the nightly cabin security checks, are non licensed non drug tested contractors. The airline industry has changed and will never be as good as it once was. It's just a job, not a career.

A few months after the strike I walked across the street and got another job. Didn't pay as well but at least I was in a hangar and I still had my self respect.
In the morning and afternoons one could look out and see the NWA cleaners going to work. A truck overloaded with Somalis, all over that truck. Way overloaded, on the hood, on the roof of the truck hanging on the sides, where were the police! I thought I've seen that scene before on the news. All they needed were some AK's and they would have been right back at home...

They way I see it, you guys basically almost lost your profession. There was so much outsourcing. The opportunities in it became undeniably greatly diminished. I am glad for those of you, who were able to get other jobs in aviation. You were the lucky ones. But I had several good friends, who had been airline mechanics, basically all their working lives, and suddenly were out on the street. It wasn't easy, fair, or just, for people to have to start over, after all of that.

I don't like to say it's luck. It's an ability to live with your choices and create your own opportunities. If you stayed in the Twin Cities chances are you got hosed at least temporarily or were a scab. Tell me if I'm wrong? We moved where the money was. Was it the best thing? Of course not! But it certainly created opportunity, money, and retirement that wasn't happening with Dicks Minneapolis operation in MSP.

Hello exnwa

Glad to see you are back on the grid. were you doing your community service. did the judge finally sentence you. I sit here typing and as I do I am reading the agreement to my right. If you are not advocating violence than why are you publishing peoples IP addresses. I should call the FCC and have you shut down for having this bad mouth style site. See you in court.

LOL.  You are not very bright.  Even if we displayed an individuals IP address, which we don't, it only tells what Internet provider that individual is using at the time. Nothing detailed about that individual.  "Community service"?  Again, LOL. BTW, it ceases to amaze us why someone keeps coming back to a web site that they can't stand. Maybe it is akin to a moth attracted to the light?

Yes, I too see SCABS around the local area, mostly while I'm out shopping at Wal Mart.
As for a neighbor, who is a Ex Eastern pilot SCAB, I would like to flip him off although I don't. Could get a visit from the sheriff.....
But what I did do is wrote on the back of one of my old NWA uniform shirt, "NO SCABS".
I truly enjoy wearing my "NO SCABS" shirt around them neighborhood while out riding the mower or my bicycle. Might even get bold & try it on during my next shopping trip.....

message ~

I had another job waiting for me as soon as I cleared the BCA Background Check. That job replaced my wage but not my 5 weeks vacation. It also replaced my insurance but not my defined pension as I was then enrolled in a 403b. I felt fortunate as I watched some of the guys struggle. If the Delta workplace was an NWA equal the SCABs wouldn't have to sign the 'at will employment agreement' and many of them would not have been terminated from Delta. I'm glad for The airline career but I like my current life in retirement much more. LOL

I occasionally run into pre-merger NWA now Deltoids that worked during our labor strife [not scabs]. It always amazes me that the ones that know you take pride and our pleased for us that there is a good life outside of that miserable airline. The ones that don't know you just listen about the other job opportunities out there. They get quiet and hang their heads low in subtle fear and shame that it was just another job to me. lol :-()
Keep us posted.

Oh "It was just another job to you". You sir are full of Sh*t! If it was just another job to you, then you wouldn't keep returning to this site making your negative comments and being so full of hate.
It obviously wasn't just another job to you. Just as it wasn't just another job to us. For many of us it was a career, we had over 20 years at NWA, had homes, families, and established roots in the community. Yeah it wasn't just another job for you...that's for sure.


In hindsight it was just another job. At the time it was devastating. I didn't scab, I moved on and got a job in aviation maintenance for a total of 35 with 20 at the red tail. I'm full of sh*t for that? I think your anger is misplaced. Mine is aimed at those that wished us a miserable life after August 2005 [from the short fat bald English guy to the scab]. lighten up a bit. The message was a reply to the nurse

Yes I too looked at my job with nwa as a career. Turns out, in today's world there is no such thing as a career job. The only time a career counts is when it is a criminal history. If you play by the rules you will find that the rules change when you need them the most. If you don't play by the rules you will find that you are given credit for being a Career Criminal.

Does anybody have any advice about how to prepare for a strike? Our contract will be up in March, so the end of March makes me think of it. A whole two years from now, but is two years really that long, if you are living on a tight budget?? Our last contract barely happened, because the administration was originally proposing horrid slices to our pension plans. Good chances, the same will reoccur.
I have been working a lot of OT. Finally got caught up on some big college bills. But since I am now acclimated to this pace, I am thinking of just continuing, and trying to build up a decent financial cushion for myself. Just in case.
I once did a lot of volunteer picketing for the Mechanics Strike. I once met a guy there, who had told me he had saved up a whole years salary, in case of a strike! Quite impressive. But most people cant even get a tenth of that saved up. Or try. Unfortunately, it would have took most everyone, having had that kind of money, to have won your strike, wouldn't it have?
Drops of Water turn a Mill, Singly None. I mention the "S" possibility discretely, from time to time to coworkers at the hospital. "Do you have a plan?" Feel obligated to "Tell" sometimes, what happened to my husband. They just look back at me, blank and scared.
Well if you had known, two years before hand what you know now, about the NWA strike, what would you have done?? Would you have done anything differently?


Prepare for a strike? You cannot save enough money to walk a picket line forever. One should always have 6 months to a year to cover life changing events. Read into that line. Two years out? Only a naive novice thought we had the company at that point. Replacements were being trained, entire stations/departments shut down and farmed out, line stations using plane techs, AFL-CIO unions actively undermining AMFA, a constant churn of employee relocations, etc. Did I mention massive layoffs. Read the tea leaves and you can tell if your company wants your work group. Ours didn't.

I saw a scab that I knew a week ago last Friday. Called him a scab repeatedly, he blew his stack, came unglued. Still can't live with himself after all this time. His conscience won't leave him alone, poor baby.

Names in Duluth now running the show.
Mark Ketterer, Dan Hamilton, Steve Klicka, Jeff trentman. All exnwa. Anybody know them?

Mark Ketterer (manager) is about as sleazy as they come. He is so good at stabbing you in the back that there won't be any blood on the knife when it comes out. He'll pencil whip just about anything, take any shortcut possible, ignore anything too troublesome, harass you for being sick and refuse to sign FMLA's. A real class A snake in the grass. Treat accordingly.
