Default Alpa Fdx

After reading Dave Webb's email this evening, I interpret this to mean that FDX ALPA has now switched sides over the age 60 issue and is recommending a change because:

1. It's inevitable
2. They want to have a say in the implementation of the rule

Also, he said that they are "stridently opposed to any regulatory change that prohibits a pilot from exercising their seniority rights."

I interpret this to mean that when the rule changes, anyone, regardless of age, will be able to exercise their seniority and bid the left seat.

Good luck fellow FDX'ers, it's going to be a painful ride because:

If you're junior (meaning both not a captain and/or junior in your current seat), you are going to be junior a very long time.

Please correct me if I am wrong in my interpretations.
