What's new? Good and/ bad.
The courts have approved the merger between American and U. S. Airways. What does that mean for us ,TWA
retirees? Good question, unfortunately the court has decided we have no right to representation on the C-1113 board, so we can only hope that American’s retirees will fight for us as well as themselves. Remember they are in the same boat as us now. They way they treated us may come back to haunt them. There has been an e-mail and letter writin gampaign going on to try and get our original seniority reinstated if and when the merger is finalized. Hopefully you have all contacted your state representative on this item. There are still many more hoops to jump through before all gets final approval. Hopefully we will come out better off, but I would not count on it.
Well on a more pleasant note we are fast approaching our All General Meeting, which will be in Denver, Colorado in September. You will your registration forms and information for making your hotel reservation in this publication. Please note the cutoff date for both your hotel reservations and also for your tours. We did have to guarantee a minimum number of participants to the company, so please be sure to sign up in advance, I would hate to cancel
a tour and find out later people wanted to participate but thought they could book at the last minute. If we do not have the minimum needed by August 15, I will have to cancel the tour and refund those who did book. I would hate to have to do that.
I would like to wish you all a wonderful Summer, filled with lots of warm sunny days, spent with family and friends. As we said long ago, “UP, UP and Away”. Have a great summer, “See you in September”... Fran
