American Eagle mechanics and related employees Friday rejected a new contract with the airline by almost a 2-to-1 vote, while the carrier's fleet service clerks approved their deal by a similar margin.
If our management is listening to their workers. Why would you cut our pay then for about 40 mechanics Eagle wide take their A&P license pay to work in the back shops by hiding it as calling them repairman and pay them mechanic pay. To most of us it just doesn’t make since. The time it takes train and understand what is involved in aircraft maintenance. All for the same pay minus the license pay. And without going to school for a A&P license. If I were running and Airline for just a couple of dollars and hour, rather have the fully trained career Mechanics.
I know that our customers would rather have fully trained mechanics
Apparently the Roselawn ATR 72 Indiana crash in 1996 was not just an outsourced company but was an
AMR CORPORATION owned subsidiary company. The airline was called Simmons and was already owned by AMR at that time.
This one slipped under the radar of many news and reporting agencies at AMR's desires, unlike the Colgan Dash 8 Buffalo disaster.
