    The CEO Doug Parker will not give Usairways a contract but yet sold $20.3 million worth of stock that he acquired through the hard work of all the employees of US Airways

    Sure wish I’d known sooner. I retired ten tears ago after putting up with USairs disgraceful tactics directed at employees. Not too impressed with the IAM either ,but it is what it is! Great bunch of people in maintenance that need to be treated fairly. Had I known sooner I would have driven down from Winston Salem to support you guys in CLT.
