Good point - as a famous man once said - "If it ain't written - it doesn't exist".

As I said - "But don't come to Netjets on what 'may' happen.."

Here is a thought. Get on the union board and post the same question.

Instead of posting a "hopefull messsage" to 100's of non nja pilots who are hoping for a change. Wouldn't it be better to actually focus the question to a more precise group of people who had a better chance of being there?

And no its false. The good news is 20 people just accepted the job because "they heard it from a friend of a friend."

Ok - what false hope am I promising? Did I mention domicles? What is incorrect about the above?

One more time ...

1) Don't come to NJA if you believe the current state of domiciles will change

2) "If its ain't written, it don't exist!"

and may I had a third ..

Don't trust the opinion of anyone on this board (including myself) in making your future career decisions ...

Then that will be 20 more people that quit right after training. I am not telling anyone to come here because the bases are increasing. If they are too stupid to do a little research than they get what they deserve. I thought you guys wanted people to come here and then quit right away?

I'm done thanks for the input.

10 days to BBQ. Enjoy:)

Okay. I was there. RTS said nothing to make me believe he was actually going to open domiciles.

5 domiciles.

Sorry, had a flashback there.

fine come here and quit I really don't care.

There are people that will come here and realize they are unable to afford moving once again. So now they are stuck, pissed, and still commuting.

Captain dad have you registered for the union board? Pm me i can help if you want.

Hey oz i know everything upside down from where you're from but I was responding to captaindad not you.

The world doesn't revolve around your island full of thieves and prisoners.

oops! Sorry mate! Blame the confusion on the late hour and the adult beverage I was enjoying :)


btw - the reason Australia started as a penal colony, is because you guys won the Revolutionary war, and Jolly 'ole England could bo longer send them over here!

I appreciate the offer for help. I am fine with the situation as is. I knew all about the way things worked, for the most part, way before I got here. In fact I sat on my app for almost six months to make sure I could make the commute work. I plan on the base system to last for the next 3 years. I accepted that fact before I even interviewed. However, if there is a chance that would change tomorrow, next year, or ten years from now, I want to know about it ASAP. That's all.

No complaints, no bitterness, not mad, in fact quite the opposite. The only down side to this gig is the commute, and for me that really isn't that big of a deal. I hope to change it in the future, but until then I'm cool.:cool:

Keep the faith my brothers!

This is the reason why a lot of NJA pilots come on to this message board and not the union board.

As soon as anybody mentions the HBA word they get attacked by those that already have HBA. Yes those of us that came after the CBA did know what we were getting into and do not need to be reminded. Yes we do know that four years was a long time to wait for this new CBA. Get over it some of us waited to apply to NJA to support you during negotiations only to come here and be attacked when all we ask for is a reasonable push to right a poor company policy.

I and many others will have left by the time these improvements take place. Remember our $$ have helped the cause,even if all you were interested in was Crew Food !!

Wow, I'm so glad you were supporting us while you waited to apply, I'm sure the poor pay, employment contract and looming work action didn't have anything to do with your choice. Oh yes, the HBA issue is in the hands of the COMPANY. No vote necessary.
So with all that love why are you a short timer? Just figured your arrival would change the world?
Good luck where ever you go, don't let the............nevermind.

X402 -

I seem to remember our union IBT1108 asked prospective new hires to hold off from applying to put further pressure on the company. I suppose you conveniently forgot about that on your way to the trough. If life was so bad why did you not go get that airline job. WHAAA nobody would hire me. Loser

Keep telling yourself that, if you have all this waiting for you why are you here in the first place? I never had 121 in my mind, so I think loser might be your own problem. Been here 7 years, where will you be in 7? I guess no one wanted to keep you, eh?
And yes I remember the hold off request, but you don't strike me as someone to 'help out.' 18 months isn't that long, good luck down the road. c ya.

I thought NJAmerica had a pretty legitimate response that didn't warrant what was said by x402...Whether you believe it or not X, a lot of people did support the fight and waited to apply til after the contract. I'm sure some were waiting to see what you got, but a lot of people knew in advance that this TA would go through. Anyways, way to build unity...Maybe you guys should exchange real names and talk through the 1108 board. Just my outside perspective...

When someone completes his thoughts with " I'll be gone soon......." I can only imagine that NJA was a holding place for him and all the HBA and "please hold off," is nothing more than rationalization for his silly posts. He must be close to recall or has an inteview with swa soon. But, I really don't care what the reason is, he is what we want so new members can get HBA asap. Spend lots of $$$$ getting them online and then they quit. So, thank you and please leave soon.

I think that is a good idea. No need to air our dirty laundry on a public forum.

Stay informed. Speak with you P2P rep. Know your contract. Know your rights.

Dirty laundry???????? What are you talking about?

Accept the job as offered, don't expect everyone to cleve to you because you were an FO for USAir. If working at NJA is a burden, then go fly freight for Wiggens or Mountain Air while you wait your recall.
I'm tired of these prima donna's, they're a waste of time.
