Mike Campbell!!! Nice to see you on our forums again. Why don't you crawl back to the Snakepit with your other Ford and Harrison buddies!Well, after reading the entire article, it is apparent to the IAW and AFA, which represents DL North, that they will loose the right to represent in the election. The rules are not going to be changed. It would be precedent-setting, and IMO is not going to happen.
If DL south thought that IAM and AFA were such a great deal, they would have voted them in years ago
I'm hardly a radical, but the current election rules are so biased in favor of management I'm surprised Michael Moore hasn't made a movie out of it. I can't tell you the number of times at DAL I've seen slimy management posters and slogans such as "give em a rip!" referring to organizing votes (as in, just rip them up, because not submitting a vote automatically equals a "no" vote).Mike Campbell!!!

The way the current system works is totally jaded in Managements favor. If someone doesn't vote it is considered a NO vote! They just want to flip it around so that the Majority of those who vote rule!!! The same way every election in the USA is done!
The current sytem sucks. You have a 28 day election and Company Management gets to provide the address list for all employees (which they always pad with people who don't exist, wrong addresses, management types etc.) voting instructions are sent out via snail mail. If an individual does not recieve his instructions then she can't vote. If you want to replace them you must send for a form, fill it out, and snail mail it back. Then you wait, hope, and pray the nmb sends you another copy. The whole process is set up jaded in managements favor and is designed to make it extremely difficult to unionize. I say let the majority of those who vote rule! Why are you so scared of that?
If the US ran voting the same way very little would ever get done.
