ROY HENDRIX

Roy Hendrix is a scab. A back stabbing scab that was in ATL and scabbed in Orlando.


Yes Roy Hendrix is a scab alright, he did start out in Atlanta, he was in Orlando but he crossed his unions picket line in MSP engine shop. There isn't a more lowlife sneaky company suckass than Roy Hendrix. He had a well deserved reputation as a rat and a snitch. He and another guy by the name of Donnie Smith had strings pulled for them by Beanie William, an old southern boy so they could float like the sh*t they are up to MSP and join some of the filthy southern scabs up there. Hendrix is a lowlife from the word go. He is another one who was blessed to have a very slim conscience. Funny he used to talk about all the drugs he did, he never connects that his severely handicapped child might have been as a result of his drugs days. I often overheard guys snickering about him. What amazes most 444's is why it took him so long to scab. I will tell ya this: if he could've found a way to sneak in the hangar without anyone noticing he damned sure would have. In this Honorable opinion, Hendrix is a sicko, too ignorant to even see what he is in the mirror. Karma will catch up with that prick, if it hasn't already.

"Got a laugh out of this one. Dickey boy tells wall street, "don't tell us how to run our airline". The last time he said this it didn't turn out so good. The employees knew better, and now the big boys on wall street don't like what they see."


Remember that Wall Street cheered when Steenland put the NWA mechanics on the street because they said he was making NWA more "efficient". Wall Street only cares about profits. Remember Gordon Gekkos' phrase "Greed is good." Why should Wall Street know how to run an airline when they can't manage a housing industry.

Wall Street managing a "housing market"?  Hate to tell you this, but congress was responsible for that fiasco.  Congress and the past administration forced banks to loan money to people they knew couldn't make the payments. All in the interest of "fairness".

After 20+ yrs. @ Nwa, went on strike & found a good job @ well-known medical device co. locally. As this co. had been founded by a great humanitarian, employees were extremely well treated, in fact, the mission statement had a clause about "ensuring that employees share in the success of the co." It was a "family" environment & absolutely no need for union representation. After about 2 yrs. @ this new job, it was announced that new members had been appointed to the board of directors...guess who ?

None other than "king dick" himself! I 'spose it's mere coincidence, but from that point on , everything about this job went downhill..rapidly!
First, "mirror image" managers were hired. When enough time had passed for them to get their feet on the ground, these new managers (f**kin WEASELS) turned on the original managers (some with 25 yrs. or more service) and fired 'em. Then they came for us..... gradually taking away anything worth $ until long term employees were having mortgages foreclosed. Ultimately there was a system -wide outsourcing, but this rant is long enough. I will continue the story if there is interest. Point is: there is no end to these corporate c*cksuckers !


Sure, keep it coming. The things these people do should never be hushed up. It bit Mitt in the a$$ and it should bite them all.
This is in no way an endorsement of Mitt's opponent. I just believe that when you screw others for your own advancements, Your name should be well Known.

Currently there is an A&P position posted for Dept. 260 that takes care of all the cabin/cockpit furnishings maintenance and water sampling/disinfecting. Delta is bringing 757 light checks to Atlanta and with their MRO work are running out of facility space there so want more work done here. Right now the jobs are still being bid internal. The whole process of bidding and applying is done by a third party contracted by Delta. All bids, applications and resumes are looked at, and ones that are chosen go through an interview and then the third party notifies Delta of the approved applicants.

Thank you for your comments on the lack of structures mechanics. I agree all of the real sheet metal mechanics are long gone. Retired, passed away or had enough of "airline executives". Old NWA, American, Eastern and others. It does take many years to develop the skills required. King Richard and the other fools thought anybody can do that. "We are not in the aircraft maintenance business". They are now paying the price! Wanting to bring the work back in house. After burning the house down. It cost too much money to maintain it.

"So what other field of employment did you go to? Still working aircraft, and hating every day of it. It is a shockingly scary difference to how things used to be. If you find something not listed on your task card, you have to make a choice... Do you say something and risk your job... or say nothing, and risk your integrity. What was... will never be again, and it's time to go!"

Got into a construction trade union and received training. Started at entry level pay and progressed to journeyman. It took many years to get there and was a hard road to travel for sure. I miss working on aircraft after 25 years in aviation but not enough to work for the lot that infested the industry.



Thanks for your reply. The construction trades just aren't my thing. I must be a little like a nwa exec. Never wanted to build anything. But unlike an nwa exec. I love to keep an old thing running. Stay strong, stay Honorable 444

Force Majeure layoffs (2001-2005), 9-11, Afghanistan, Iraq, SARS, bird flu, etc. "We're not in the aircraft maintenance business", compete with low cost carriers, outsource maintenance, lower labor costs, take it or leave it concessions-contract, $22.95 an hour, "the world has changed forever". Strike, scabs, bankruptcy (delta-nwa, same day, same court), crossovers-scabs, broken strike, settlement, pay raises for scabs, merger, unions gone. Dick.

This is scary stuff. Like the references you make, why is none of it effecting delta today. Richard Anderson, comes out and tells the public that you can't catch Ebola on an airplane. Then a delta talking head is on the news assuring the public that delta is working very close with the CDC to insure their aircraft are cleaned properly. This mouth piece goes on to make a link about delta and the CDC both being located in Atlanta, so like a good neighbor, they work very close together. As if to say delta gets better information because of it. So I have to ask... Why did all the other incidents cause delta/nwa to lose money, but not these? And if not... Why is the mouth piece on the news making these points? Could it be... they will say what they need to say to keep the money coming in? Could it be... that when it suits them, they will layoff, and when it doesn't there is nothing to fear?

You are correct... airline executives use whatever situation to their benefit. Read an article this morning about this subject. Seems 1/4 of the flying public are now rethinking their flying plans because of the Ebola scare. Remember, when a government spokesperson or airline executive opens their mouth, they are probably lying in some form or another. They all have an agenda.


You are so right! This Ebola thing makes those other diseases look like the common cold. Ebola always has been the worst sh*t that could hit a country. Compares to the plague. But like you brought up it must not be convenient for Dick and his pricks to use it, one reason being it is so bad. Again Dick and the pricks don't need to use it, they already have everything they need, why mess with the "bubonic plague" which by the way isn't as bad as Ebola. Dick and the pricks could get on an airplane full of Ebola victims to show the public it can't be caught on an airplane, he he, but he won't be doing that. Steenland could travel, he's already about as ugly as a human can get, even Ebola wouldn't f**k with him.

Nope those mother*ckers bought every favor they could use to stick it to us. They won't need this truly badass disease, they already have a bunch of lepers doing as they are told, and they know that no matter how dry they f**k them, they won't do a damned thing. They won't strike, even we know that.

Too bad CEO's cant just do their job and worry about making money, it was a good thing they saved all that money by getting rid of those over paid mechanics! Oops, my mistake. Hmmm? Seems costs kept going up every year the head count went down, good thing Dick, Doogie and Harry Potter wanna be Bauer kept getting raises for their stellar work! Now they have a new sucker in their sights! Go Del-TURD!! lol

One of the greatest difficulties when working structures, sheetmetal, was that most jobs would involve many techs over many shifts, each contributing to the task at hand. You were a part of the complete task, and you assumed the risk of that scenario each time the task was completed and signed off. Every skill level involved was part of the whole task. I use to cringe at the end of the job when I would have to sign for the complete repair after seeing some of the work that had been done. I enjoyed working structures, but this part of the job was difficult to accept. It eventually made me move on to other work. I can not imagine working structures today, what with the work being done overseas and in the scab infested work centers today. It would be impossible. Sheetmetal, structures, are a skill, acquired over a long apprenticeship, a long learning curve, a long time. Working structures or any aircraft maintenance job was difficult enough when working with the support of the union.

Working AC without Unions.
I think the unions were a major reason the whole thing worked. The unions kept personality conflicts between skilled labor and unskilled management at a minimum. Not so today. Today the guy who plays the "company boy" gets favor of his leader, and the rest have too take directions from this kiss a$$, who's only skill is kissing up. Most of the people I see working in a lead or lower management position today... were Scabs or would be Scabs if the situation was the same. Unions give the employee a voice, but even more so, in a skilled labor positions... unions bring a needed security net that prevents the unskilled from influencing their shortcuts. AC maintenance has become a "paint by numbers" job. One could say... we are now flying paper airplanes, and just like any paper airplane, no matter how crisp the fold lines... none of them fly good!

Might be so. If you follow the aviation job pages there are two positions they offer hiring bonuses for. One is avionics, and the other is structures. The contract houses don't have any problems finding non-licensed parts changers, but skilled help won't work for the money they offer. Even the out of country vendors can't find people for these two positions. The FIM's, the SRM's, blue prints, wiring diagrams, etc... all to much high tech English for the beginners. Lots of fat cat CEO's are starting to learn that they pissed in their boots trying to fill their wallets.

I used to be a structures mechanic but the company I worked for "constructively locked" out the union I was a member of. This company displayed a lot of contempt toward our union members. Most of the members were very skilled and gave many years of dedicated service to the company. The majority of members walked away from the company rather than put their name on a list to return to a company that denigrated their service. So I entered a new field of employment. Now I make better pay and benefits than when I was kicked to the curb by the company. Too bad, I really liked working on airplanes.

So what other field of employment did you go to? Still working aircraft, and hating every day of it. It is a shockingly scary difference to how things used to be. If you find something not listed on your task card, you have to make a choice... Do you say something and risk your job... or say nothing, and risk your integrity.

For anyone interested, Delta is going to be bringing back to MSP the A330 C Checks (to save money over outsourcing) as well as contract work. Info was about 70 positions added here for managers, leads, inspectors, mechanics and asm's. all bids are going internal first before going out to public. word from the rehired guys in mmb is that Delta is hurting for structures people. Some positions may end up being in line maintenance to backfill anyone bidding to mmb.
