Default AA Runoff Election

We need to elect Eric Ferguson as president of APA and Patrick O’Rourke as Vice President. This is the only way to stop the undermining of the Pilot board by Dan Carey and others. I am former US airways and a staunch USAPA member so that should tell you that I am being honest about supporting Eric Ferguson, just ask anyone about the USAir and America West fight.

Why did you feel the need to ruin this message board with election talk? Anyways, the BOD is 100% endorsing DC while your boy Erik was kicked off the negotiating com.

You are on property how long now? How old are you? Relative seniority?

Enough of a reason for me to vote for EF

In reality the biggest problem with the APA is the structure that makes the elected national officers mostly figureheads and placeholders. They have little actual power unless you pull a DC around everyone. Also a huge waste of union dues paying them.

I'm not a fan of ALPA but the structure and centralized nature of the union made it better.

Just responding to the original poster who stated:

"This is the only way to stop the undermining of the Pilot board by Dan Carey and others"

That doesnt make sense since the BOD is endorsing DC. Do what you want, I really dont care.

BOD is not 100% in its endorsing of DC, there was BOD members missing from that list....but the majority are on there, just not 100%

Odd someone who appears to be a new hire would go all out against EF and for Carey. I’d probably log onto the forum over on FB and get a little bit of an education by those who’ve been here before the merger and have seen what’s going on. Not sure why anyone under 10 years or below WB Captain would vote for Carey. Seems by your post you fit into a category. Who knows. Maybe I’m wrong but certainly seems that your understanding of Carey and a BOD support seem short sighted.
