Even though the subject matter (thread) title is "CAL/UAL Merger" which in itself a controversial subject, the Administrator has warned me for being too controversial. Those "controversial" posts of mine are generating much response. Isn't that what the Administrator's site is all about? Does he not use commercial advertisers here and needs participation? Or is this site just for those who are like minded and support the status quo? In the spirit and direction of the Administrator, I will choose less controversial subjects. Such as:
What do you think of our new uniform?
Our union has spent over four years discussing uniform style and color. In the interest of being benign, let us forget that they have spent millions of union dollars debating uniform style and color. I'l betcha this uniform is a doozy. Shiney and purtty and quality material and all. It must be one hell of a uniform because the late famous clothing designer Edith Head could design the Queen's clothes over night and it's taken our union four years. What a uniform it's going to be!
Consider the following. The pilot uniform is required garb. CAL is one of the only airlines in the country that does not provide an annual uniform allowance or provide cleaning allowance. I guess these things aren't too important to our union and or our pilots. I wonder if they are important to UAL pilots?
If JP is going to spend four years and millions of dollars trying to decide between black or navy blue uniform, you can imagine how long he's going to spend negotiating the rest of our contract. You can bet JP is thorough. No expense and time is too much when fighting for our contract. Of course, by the time he finalizes the contract, most of you will be old men. Go, Jay! Go! Spend! Spend! Spend! It's only union dues. There's more where that came from!
What would be your suggestion for a "non-controversial uniform?"
