United We Stand ... ( doesn't sound communist to me Andy L.)

This is a letter from the FedxMx blog site in response to a airline mechanic who spoke out at a meeting and was escorted out of work. This is what is possible when we all stand together and do what is right thing, BE WISE AND ORGANIZE!

I want to personally thank everyone who has responded to our posts on the raise and what happened to our brother in lax.
I have never been so proud of everyone for staying on the same page and standing with our fellow brother and sisters in the other class and crafts. I have gotten so many private emails and phone calls and posts on the website confirming that we will not be fooled again and we will all stand together on this till its done.
The company never knew what kind of communications we have when they decided to try and intimidate one of our leaders in lax. The emails went out in one day and the teamsters and their law firm Baptist and Wilder where in communication with the amt.
To make this simple lets call the amt Andy lol. Andy's fellow amt's stood their ground and wrote up affidavits saying what they claim happened (the company) never did happen.
From what I heard from all these people that management was going crazy trying to figure out what the hell was going on, who is this guy they walked out and who caused this. I can only imagine the phone calls and crap hitting the fan. Andy was actually called out on a Sunday to go talk to upper management. You know they love coming out on their Sunday.
The reason Andy is back at work so fast is because all of us stood together and the communication tools have been put in place and we acted as brothers and sisters with one purpose. God I love it and I can't tell you all how proud I am to be associated with the teamsters and all of you. I know now the brotherhood that is formed when you have so many people who stand together and say we are not going to be dealt from the bottom of the deck anymore. We will not be bought out, we already seen what happen's when we did. I
Didn't want this to be a cheerleader type letter but we have come so far in such a short amount of time I see nothing but light at the end of the tunnel.
Thank you all again, you make me so proud to be a part of this.

fraternally yours Tducksoup1
