I believe we turned down 2 TA's in a row. ALPA 1 in 1995 and again with FPA in 1997. It only took the Union (both ALPA and FPA) imploding twice and a couple of MEC Chair and FPA President & Negotiation Committee resignations and a recall or 2 and we finally got a Management sided contract shoved down out throats.
