    Aircraft maintenance has been without a contract for years. I know some of them are expecting $20,000 back pay checks.

    Remember that if they strike, the IBT will have us strike in solidarity.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    The IBT is openly pushing for a yes vote by targeting individual groups they think it benefits.

    I won't hold my breath that solidarity is high on their list.

    "The ad also notes that union members have voted to authorize a strike — however, they cannot legally strike at this point because they have not gotten clearance from the National Mediation Board to do so."

    UPS said it “continues to negotiate in good faith,” and added: “We are ready, willing and able to return to the table whenever the NMB, which controls the pace and timing of negotiations, deems it advisable.”

    Being covered by the Railway Labor Act.... that can happen.

    60% said no. Interesting so what legitimate complaints do these 60% have. You dont go 4 years on an extension and then vote ut down for a box of cereal, it will be enlightening to understand, if we get to, the real reasons these individuals wish to prolong their painful process of negotiating with our mutual employer
