But I plan to retire from here and realize the need for a CBA to ensure we get what is fair.
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.

Great post wilco!
