    ALPA vs ALPA merger

    Dumbest comment on FI in quite some time outside of the non-aviation section.

    Company refuses to reconize employees right to organize

    You're. And that's false. The salaries are determined by the locals that hired them, not the national union. You keep ignoring that fact.

    I'd call you worse to your face. No pesky profanity filter then.

    AA list

    Congrats Eastholes. It took you a decade, but you finally managed to screw the West.

    Master Chairman

    Interesting. He never seemed the MEC officer type to me. Always seemed more at home reeking havoc as a status rep. :) Can't say I care for Malone, though. Never thought I'd say this, but you guys need Moak back.

    Company refuses to reconize employees right to organize

    It's confusing because you aren't recognizing the difference between a franchise and an independent entity. SEIU is not setup as a franchise operation. Their local operations are essentially independent, just like ALPA MECs, free to make their own decisions and operate as they see fit. A...

    Company refuses to reconize employees right to organize

    There's a difference between a subsidiary and a franchise. You would think someone workout for the WSJ would know that.

    SWA Pilots Picket outside DAL and MDW

    Glad they got you the B fund. I'm surprised they were able to get it that high to start. Not a bad job for SWAPA.

    ALPA vs ALPA merger

    No, not at all. I was pretty clear throughout the SLI process that Southwest management intended to merge the two operations, no matter what. I never believed that separate operations was a real threat. I was speaking in general terms, because sometimes a company is looking for a whipsaw.

    ALPA vs ALPA merger

    SOC is entirely a regulatory issue, so labor seniority and contracts aren't really an issue. You can have multiple seniority lists under the same operating certificate, or multiple operating certificates for a single seniority list. The government doesn't care. From a corporate perspective...

    ALPA vs ALPA merger

    That pick is, shall we say, non-traditional. Very well respected labor attorney, and I think he did some work for the Eagle MEC regarding their flow or something else related, but I'm not familiar with any pilot seniority integration he's litigated.

    ALPA vs ALPA merger

    I was fooled by our strike vote and the incredible turnouts of multiple SPC events during late stage contract negotiations. I thought our pilots had actually grown a spine. On that, I was wrong.

    ALPA vs ALPA merger

    Depends on whether outside factors are involved. Remember, Southwest management was the wild card that screwed us over. They shouldn't have been involved, but they interjected themselves into the process and started making threats. I doubt Alaska management would do the same, but you never know...

    Freund? He'll be a voice of reason. Might help. It'll still be ugly, though.

    ALPA vs ALPA merger

    Any idea which attorney the Alaska MEC has hired? That might give some indication about how they'll try to proceed with it. Generally, if it gets to arbitration, the answer is always the same: ratio by category and status. But the Alaska MEC is going to fight tooth and nail to prevent it. It's...
