How many military trained pilots does it take to fly an airplane? ONE,,, and about 30 enlisted men to actually make it happen. There's a good reason civilian contractors fly most of the heavy but essential cargo for the military. Because those socialist military pilots can't fly weather without all of that backup.
Do you have thread confusion, doesn't this belong someeplace else?

BTW I didn't have 30 enlisted men helping me, I only had 10, plus three other officers, shows what you know.:p

I wish I could reference it, but this came from my busienss law class when discussing contracts. That was over 30 years ago.
If you can't find a reference, then it almost certainly doesn't exist.

I already searched and couldn't find anything similar to that, so I'm pretty sure I already have proved you wrong.

Most unions have outlived their usefulness and have become nothing more than businesses supporting their executive leaderships monetary desire. Look at the salaries of ALPA union leadership and support staff versus the pilots.

ALPA sucks balls...

ALPA became a country club for young republicans years ago. They only support union activities when it's convenient and ignore picket lines of other unions.

I wish I could disagree with this, but it's pretty much true under the current administration. Thankfully Moak is on his way out, and there is a much better alternative being offered who would shift the union back towards actually acting like a union instead of the A4A's servant boy.

Alpa is what it's members allow it to be

But I do wonder who benefits when it becomes this and when members believe it

Most of the problems with aviation can be directly tied to the voting habits of most pilots. In 2000, 75% of the political campaign donations from AA pilots went to bush and republicans who used their positions to destroy labour when ever possible. Now, why should I ever respect an AA picket line?

Is that a serious conclusion you come to?

A fair and accurate critique- highly paid union workers not supporting their career politically-
But you're saying you should be able to scab bc of it?

Go ahead and try it maru

Crossing a picket line is like ignoring a leak because it's on the other side of the boat.
