At least that's what every text I've received today says. More than two dozen guys are seeing exactly what management's idea of fair and equitable is; totally ignore seniority to promote the least qualified. Support your union.

I've known since the organizing campaign started. But my text messages blew up this morning, which tells me a bunch of guys are just figuring it out. That red label spot went way out of seniority, and the guy it went to...wow, just wow.

Let me explain DC to you in very implicit terms. KENN Ricci wants an army of pilots to do his beckoning at the stroke of an email. You have no needs, your not a person, you have no life except to be unplugged from the matrix when needed. Good old Sylvester, who is unwilling to settle for anything second best, and has ALWAYS wanted to pay us more has selflessly rescued this company single handedly all the while filling his swimming pool with pilot sweat. You think I like teamsters national? F no. You think I don't love our mec? Of course I do. We're gonna take it to them irregardless of the flex guys that came 16 votes from selling us out. Time to put it behind us. It's us against them. We will prevail

Warlord, sleep well tonight. I will too. You know why? Cause I know I got a Hell of a lot of good guys watching my back. Guys not distracted by management pukes like yourself. Guys that are genuinely interested in promoting the safety of business aviation. You can take your anti union sentiments and hit the road

Not going to post names in direct violation of the terms of service. Nice try at getting me banned though.

ok, so how far down the list did they go on captain awards? We all know that mgt is handing out upgrades to the transfers and flex guys like halloween candy while the UNION is fighting over the fence agreements

Right on cue, just in time to set in fears of furloughs and a downturn in profitability that management is trying to "deftly counter" in terms of market trends, a call for voluntary early retirement to stave off the need for "more drastic measures" gets emailed out to the pilots.

Is it just me or there a playbook or something they really do follow? I know several of the Union people predicted exactly this would happen. Interesting.

I guess they know the stall tactics they are playing out in federal court will only work for so long and they need to set the stage now for the eventual arbitration proving they can't afford a netjets type CBA.

Don't believe the hype. If they spent just a portion on the contract of the millions spent fighting the union, we'd be the best paid pilots to ever sit in a cockpit.

The audacity of these people. Seriously? I didn't think it could get more ridiculous and then this happens.

Every time they have a chance to actually win some support they just make the union option look better and better. And poorly timed. Today is the last day pilots have to pay their dues. You'd think they would have at least waited until tomorrow to make such a bad chess move.

It's actually a very good move. There you go again under estimating KR. We are furloughing pilots. So the majority of these non union supporters which is 49.9% aren't gonna shell out money to a union they don't support and then get furloughed on top of that. They are gonna save every penny they can hope the union goes away and KR takes care of his loyal followers.

Now the million dollar question...

Will KR furlough the Flex pilots in order of senority starting with the Flight Options transfer pilots going first or will he come up with a bespoke procedure?

We all see from the lawsuit that he really cares about his pilots senority list.

Afterall, employees are the foundation of a service company.
