Is Fred paying the MEC union leaders off?[/COLOR]
Drew..........I am not sure exactly you what you are trying to say or what point you are trying to make. Why are you trying to stir the POT, especially since you are enjoying a fairly nice Union negotiated retirement.

To make (unjustifed ) accusations about an Elected Union official taking a payoff from the company serves no purpose except to give the Company PR folks more ammo.

I know your access to VIPs is now cut off..................but what would you have the Leadership do? If the membership (albeit a small number) continues
to undermine the negotiating committee by sacrificing off days..................

Alot of FLEX CAPT's and Check Airman are doing alot of "Voluntary" right seat flying lately so crew skeds can cover trips.

So again............show me a totally unified group and I'll show you a superior contract. Show me a splintered group and..............you know the rest.
