When you get that, you may realize that ALPA IS YOU.
ALPA is me? ALPA is not me. ALPA is more concerned with dues and covering its own a$$ than it is with me.
Let me tell you something, if the colonists had the same attitude back in the late 1700's that ALPA has today, we would still be owned by the UK. Wasn't it illegal to revolt against the king? Yet our ancestors risked their lives in order to ensure a better future for their children.
What is ALPA doing to ensure a better future for the group it represents? Complying with the RLA and watching our wages, benefits, and work rules deteriorate, while at the same time promoting some bull$hit known crewmember program? ALPA needs to get its priorities straight.
Until ALPA get's its head out of its a$$, begins taking matters into its own hands, and starts becoming more concerned about the profession then with its revenue, ALPA is nothing more to me than a monopoly forcing people to pay into it's crap. ****** ALPA.
