Default Council 26 Mike Arcamuzi for Blk 11 Election

I have known Mike for over 10 years and hope that those of you in his block take the time to consider his integrity and experience and vote for him as your rep.

To All Members of Council 26 (Blocks 3, 6, & 11)
Mike Arcamuzi for Block 11
Are you ready for a contract?
Are you ready to be rewarded for the contributions you make each day to the success of our corporation?
Do you want to improve your retirement, both the "A"-plan and the "B"-plan?
Do you want to fix 4.A.2.b.?
Do you want to preserve our vacation system, improve safety, and fix our reserve system?
Do you want seniority holding instructors in your classrooms, simulator training, and simulator evaluations?
Dont you think weve waited long enough for the improvements you deserve?
Weve waited far too long.

Our company continues to grow and turn record profits while we fall further and further behind. Dont you think its time to stop the erosion? Quite frankly the strategy of appeasement has failed. We need to convince management of our desire to conclude this agreement on our terms with solid contractual gains. I want to help lead our union and the nearly 4,300 professional pilots at FedEx to the contract weve earned.

I am asking for your vote the old fashioned way - I want to earn it. I invite you to learn more about me at Elect Mike for Block 11 where you can read about who I am, what I stand for, and see my vision for Safety issues, Quality of Life Issues, Retirement and Insurance Issues, and Instructor issues. If you are still not convinced to vote for me or if you have questions or concerns, I invite you to contact me so I can address your issues.

If you are convinced I am the right person for the job, Im asking for your help to spread the word. Please talk to your fellow pilots, share the website Elect Mike for Block 11, and encourage others to vote.

Beginning Monday, October 20 at 0900 Central Time you can cast your ballot. Login to the ALPA Homepage at Air Line Pilots Association, International. You will need your ALPA number or alternate login and your password. Once logged in, you will see a Ballot option. You can change your vote as often as you like, but only the last vote will count.
(If you have forgotten your ALPA number or password, you can call ALPA Membership at (888) 359-2572, Option 3, between 0800-1600 Central Time, or send an e-mail to [email protected].)
As I stated in my nomination letter, I believe it is up to the Negotiating Committee to get the best possible contract under the circumstances. It is up to you and me to change those circumstances. I think we can do better and I am convinced I can make a difference. Please vote for Mike Arcamuzi for Council 26 Block 11 Representative.

Fraternally,

Michael Arcamuzi

Hey........all you Fdx Crewmembers out there, dredge your memory, do your homework. In particular you Guys and Gals in Blocks 3,6 and 11, do not be fooled, conned or mis-led. M. A. is/was Webbs right hand man. There is no new and improved. Its the same old Gig. To paraphrase Abraham Lincoln in 1864..."Don't change horses in the middle of the stream".........THAT would truly be devisive.

He will be flattered that you think he was the right hand man...but change is needed. Even the block one rep would agree. Even with one of his strongest supporters, the honeymoon is over and a divorce is definitely in the near future.

Spreading fear about change to keep change from happening shows your true colors. Change needs to happen and it sends a message to the company.

We can't get the train out of the station now. We need some new conductors. (Unless it involves a bouncy house and face painting...)

Yep, just as I thought......."Change is needed..........the honeymoon is over and a divorce is definitely in the near future"...........oh yeah......That's what we need, an upheaval in leadership in the last quarter of negotiations, and major changes in course. Remind you of any previous contractual failed history? And yes Hkflyr, it is about Webb and how Arco was in lock step with him. The Company is just rubbing their hands in glee.........This should illustrate clearly for all Pilots.........Arco and his faction (in my opinion) do not care about your well being, just about regaining power. This smacks of smokey rooms and parking lot deals. Folks in the 3 blocks he is running in, this is not a new face, it is not a new agenda, this is not an innovative approach and this is definitely not in your best interest..........ask yourself one question......why be divisive now? It's just all about the power. Plain and simple. Think, remember, and do due diligence.

Upheaval? Term ends 28 Feb 15. It's an election.

You want someone that is proactive and leads or someone that's a follower?

your forgetting to also blame George Bush also. Blame Webb has gotten old with the SS crowd...

What we have isn't working and changing leadership is needed. It isn't a love fest at the table any more and leadership is what is lacking.

Did you notice that retirement letter out out by Jack A, David C AND John G? Pretty big slap in the face against this great MEC...those first 2 used to support SS, but that divorce already happened.
