Assistant National Director Letter to American Airlines AMTs regarding AMFA's Extension Request

Dear American Airlines Mechanic and Related Employees:
AMFA has been granted a 7-day postponement to provide its response to the challenges to the proposed eligibility list of American Airlines by the TWU/IAM Association (“TWU/IAM”) which seeks to add roughly 2,000 ineligible individuals to the list of 13,213 proposed by American Airlines in an underhanded effort to dilute the significance of the cards you submitted calling for a union election. The National Mediation Board’s rules require substantive evidence be provided from both the TWU/IAM, which is scarce in its challenges, and from AMFA in its response to those challenges.
The additional time is needed to include additional, necessary substantive evidence (i.e. proof) to disprove eligibility of the many ineligible voters proposed to be added to the list by the TWU/IAM. AMFA’s filing, when filed, will have an abundance of exhibits containing the substantive evidence needed to disprove the TWU/IAM’s numerous frivolous requests.
This effort by the TWU/IAM “Association” is another example of how desperate they are to keep you from voicing your will. We are extremely confident that we prevail in this matter and that you will finally receive your rightful opportunity to choose your representation. Empowered by your support, we will fight for your rights with every resource we have, and in the end, you will be heard on this matter.
