    Flexjet announces pay raises

    Admittedly a clickbait thread title in lieu of the announcement you guys are expecting but I felt the need to come and defend the memory an old colleague. Got a call from an buddy about the weekly email sent out yesterday about the welfare check they had to send out on no show pilot (who...

    Scotus union ruling

    Tax dollars much? It's pretty much an apples-to-apples comparison when you think about it. Law is based on precedent and if you can't see that we just opened ourselves up a huge precedent based on yesterday's ruling then I don't know what to tell you. There was nothing good for conservatives...

    No Teamsters at Flexjet!

    I posted a longer response on another response but the social implications are huge. This one decision might be about public sector unions but this is stupid and shortsighted on a broad scale level. I thought elections had consequences. Everyone was pissed when Obama said it until Trump won...

    Scotus union ruling

    Short sighted and stupid... Unions exist in companies because 50%+1 of the workers voted for the Union to represent them. Kinda like presidential elections. But our Supreme Court just signaled to masses of millennials and conservative frauds alike if you didn't vote for it or you don't want...

    OneSky SLI Committee

    Sent you the details. No need to screw things up for others with a public post.

    OneSky SLI Committee

    Sure the decert guys have earned the derision of their colleagues industry wide but apparently there's also a different kind of reckoning going on. Talked to a former colleague who was very union supportive about his lack of interest from a particular major despite glowing reccomemdations...

    No Teamsters at Flexjet!

    No squawk I think what he's saying is something that resonates with a lot of us. He was happy to be pulling in a good paycheck without having to crawl on the backs of others for more. For most of the Union supporters at Flex the issue was never money. It was work rules and quality-of-life...

    No Teamsters at Flexjet!

    I know. He should have just kept his mouth shut and his head low after that picture surfaced but he just couldn't help himself. Even so, I'd still advocate figuring out how to put this behind you or move on. The only man in control of how gracefully that's done is Kenn Ricci. It will be...

    The hit no one saw coming

    Don't worry squawk. Only one of us will be right in the end. Just wait. I chose not to. Obsession? No. Maybe just a little selfish placating I'll admit but hardly obsession. You on the other hand... geesh.

    You can’t fix stupid

    Man you just insist on digging your hole deeper and deeper. You could have kept quiet, skated barely under the radar except for the few who know what you really did but you insist on creating a pariah of yourself with a little less than half of your pilot's group and in a few months half of...

    No Teamsters at Flexjet!

    You of all people should learn to shut your ****ing mouth. Humility might just be the only thing you have in your arsenal to save your certificate. Be grateful the people with all the proof needed to bust your ass with the FAA aren't as hell bent on retribution as you seem to be hell bent on...

    The Moving Goalpost at Flex

    You're a dreamer. The thing they hated most about the union was the constraints it put on them regarding safety and service. Do you think they hated the salaries? Give me a break. That CBA gave them qualified pilots at bargain basement prices. If that's all they cared about they would...

    You can’t fix stupid

    Well you missed the boat on identifying the smartest dude on the thread so I'll correct your mistake and answer. The fact is the majority has spoken. That should be honored and they should get the right to live under the consequences of that voice. The good news for them is it will be a slow...

    The hit no one saw coming

    Ricci might just be the smartest man to have ever lived. Those individual employment contracts you're about to all sign will include two clauses. One will have you give up your right to class action. Each contract will be expressly individual. That means if he breaks a key component of the...

    Vote will be counted right now

    I know there's a few fat ones in that picture aren't there? He's the one in the truck bed. What is particularly funny is that a former friend happens to have a a full of text messages he sent that correspond with times he was in the Sim giving check rides. Porn. Derogatory comments about the...

    Another perspective on the decert

    I know right now some of my old colleagues at Flexjet are disappointed. I've also heard some out of touch accusations from non Flexjet pilots targeted at union leadership but the numbers speak otherwise. In the last 2 years Flexjet lost 150ish pilots, most of them union leaning. In addition...

    NJA Pilot for DECERT

    But they will and you know it. History proves it. But you still decided to give him your vote anyway. I am stunned to read your words. You knew better but you acted out of petulance instead. Your words, as a pro deserter pilot, are such a stunning indictment of management it's head warping...

    NJA Pilot for DECERT

    And I guarantee you OneSky just got a whole lot weaker. In the grand scheme of things I think you guys are going to be stunned with the ramifications. It will take some time, it will be frog in the water, but every single one of those "day after" predictions will happen sooner or later...

    NJA Pilot for DECERT

    Now the vote has been cast the quickest and most effective way for NJA to benefit from this situation might be to offer (with their unions permission) some type of integrated seniority for whatever # they are needing to hire if those pilots come now. They get fractional experienced pilots, some...
