Then again, I was ALPA in my previous job and we got played repeatedly by management, with out MEC's help. I hope that we can get good people in, people that will stand strong but not ostracize management to where dialogue and mutual respect become impossible.
Excellent post. Your opinion as a junior un-jaded new guy is probably more valuable than mine. Thanks for posting.
