This attempt to circumnavigate the agreed upon bid process is nothing more than the sUAL MEC holding the sCAL pilots at gunpoint to get what they desired but refused to do so in order to start their self-righteous pity-party as a means to an end.
Pot? meet Kettle. It is funny that you would accuse sUAL MEC of "circumnavigating" an "agreed upon process" and mention the retro pay issue in the same paragraph. (I thought it was a signing bonus, btw) The retro pay issue was agreed to by the JNC, but the sCAL MEC wanted more. In fact they wanted HALF, even though sCAL has less pilots! I suppose by your above whining about how s-UAL got the "lion's share", you too would have been happy with half instead of the arbitration award which divided it proportionally. Your hypocrisy is epic.
