HA! that order has no teeth... the court, the company and the union can order plead and direct all it wants... You can not force someone to work. People get tired. Darn those pesky FARs.

sometimes extra work isn't worth the money. Youll never get that time back...

Fly schedule
go home
wait for contract

Spirit wants to treat their people like they treat their customer... well sometimes if you kick the dog enough it bites back.

Best of luck guys you deserve better.

That's not what the TRO was for. It was to maintain status quo from before when quite a few of their pilots went full retard on APC and started to harass those who did pick up open time, started and encouraged a campaign to stop picking up open time, and attacked those who did. Mgt filed several pages of APC posts in their injunction. The pilots left an evidence trail a mile long. Frankly I'm surprised their union didn't step in sooner and told their pilots to just stop posting on APC until a new CBA was ratified.

Because the pilots wouldn't listen. Some guys are keyboard heroes and love to be rabble rousers. You see them in all the airlines during negotiations. The internet now makes it very easy for mgmt to track.
