We are our worst enemy and always think the worst. Had they not reinforced the specific parts that will actually apply, the pilot interpretations of this would likely be way worse. I had a couple background questions that don't change the decision so I made a phone call and got my questions answered. My questions might be completely different than yours and I don't expect them to think of any possible questions every pilot may have. That's why they make themselves available. I'm not sure what more transparency you want than that. If you don't ask your specific question directly and instead come here for a definitive answer on anything you think of, it's like asking a random passenger on a flight how to best navigate around thunderstorms on your way to your destination.
Your opinion has been noted. I don't feel like I need babysitting, but I can see where you think others might. I'm not sure you actually read what I wrote, because I have zero questions after reading the document. Perhaps you need someone from the union to explain that to you? In my opinion, your response is emotional and rather sententious.
I cheer the efforts of our union reps while acknowledging the objective facts of the situation, which aren't pretty, but are about what one might expect. Good day!

I read your post and understood it. You literally stated:

Why should I need to call someone to find out a decision that is already final and binding?

​​​​​
Some people had other questions. I myself had a few but still understood the decision. Good to know you didn't have any at all. I'm just unsure what you meant by wanting more transparency and that was my question in the last post.

I really donít think they have any flying lined up anyway . This is all based on a wish and a prayer that something comes through.
All of this fuss about nothing.
We could be flying 900s in six months or the doors could shut . Could go either way.

I think we are finally in agreement here. Apparently, the company told the arbitrator that they only have a 50/50 shot getting any flying to go with those rates if he gave the company our 200 rates and the ability to negate our contract and make us be qualified/continually tested to fly all three airplanes intermixed as one position. Since he didn't do that, it seems like we won't get any new flying based on managements own argument...

I wish the union had been more forthcoming with the information they received by sharing it immediately instead of issuing an email telling us to hang on another 24 hrs when the arbitration was already final and binding regardless what gripes anyone might have with it. But I respect your point that the reps needed time to process the ruling so when people ask them questions, they know what they're talking about. Sorry if I ruffled any feathers. They're good people and I know it's a tough racket.
