The Red Tail, 2009, 87 minutes, directed by Melissa Koch and Dawn Mikkelson
The story…“For all those families struggling with the disastrous effects of economic globalism, with a global system that does not speak to their concerns or address their fears, The Red Tail is your film. For those not victims of globalism, at least not yet, The Red Tail is your ticket to understand how your country is being shaped by forces beyond our political control. [The Red Tail] will make you not only smarter, but also more sensitive and compassionate.”-Huffington Post, Feb 25, 2010.
On August 19, 2005 Roy Koch, along with 4,400 airline mechanics, custodians, and cleaners of AMFA went on strike against Northwest Airlines, the fourth largest airline in the world. Northwest, otherwise known as “The Red Tail” by its employees, wanted to lay off 53% of their union and outsource their jobs. What followed was a 444-day strike that would end with 4,000 union members out of work, including Roy.
