Yepp, you've got it straight.Resume Writer said:O.K., let me see if I get this straight -
NWA Management spent $100 million to train replacements, yet they are seeking a $176 million pay give back???
Further, they are asking for a 26% pay cut, which would make the pay for the MX techs go to about $26 per hour instead of about $37 an hour. Yet, they are paying $32 an hour for replacement MX techs, plus housing costs, which I am certain equals more than $37 an hour.
Further, comparing the NWA MX Techs to SWA MX Techs is like apples and oranges. The NWA MX Techs work on several different types of aircraft, have to have more certifications, etc. Interestingly enough, the SWA MX Techs make more on average than the NWA Techs. Not taking anything away from SWA people, but I find it odd the pay differentation.
It amazes me how management will step over a dollar to pick up a dime. Raise the fares and you can keep your people AND make money!!
