See you later!

Ferguson and O'Rourke got the votes. It might get a tad warm over there at C'n R.

There’s at least one guy over there is having a melt down cause his FPL is now gone. He’s stating in every thread come Monday there will be a appeal.
The BOD should be embarrassed how out of touch they are with the membership. Carey got his ass kick and they all backed him.(14 of 18)
Nice voter turnout though...good sign

Just one thread as far as i can tell, but yeah, embarrassing nonetheless.

He comes across delusional.

Cannot believe the PHX reps supported Carey.

Our newer pilots are about to witness the absurdity of APA. The membership has spoken and those in power are in denial. The elitist establishment embedded in APA is clearly evident. The good old boys are angry and can’t accept reality. I would suggest all those concerned to send sound offs with your opinions. Like him or not we have a new President at APA. If this is challenged I think those supporters in the BOD will be recalled.

I’m not on Facebook. Someone should spread the word over there that this coup d’etat is about to happen. Good grief we need ALPA. The wide body whiners are clearly ****ed. The younger pilots have spoken and are going to be ignored.

The West would have carpet bombed the USAPA HQs if they could have.

Wasn’t USAPA started to avoid the ruling of an arbitrator when they formally were under ALPA? Thus USAPA “busted” up their, and under duress by USAPA, America West’s ALPA affiliations. You have strange view of things.

Yeah but to be fair the east deserved it, when they didn't like the results of the decision (with the guys they picked and had a history of similar rulings) they went postal.

The next phase in bringing the APA into the modern era is to vote in local elections and get rid of the old school BOD members. In the APA the president really doesn't have much power, it's the BOD the drives most of the decision making.

Absolutely agree as far as USAPA, when the judge tells you to do something you ought to do it.

Any BOD guy/girl who endorsed DC needs to go. The guy is a crook, and you don't have to break a law/bylaw to be a crook.

DC was hired at 24(?) on the B scale, upgraded in a few years, and was a 777 CA at 39.

He is so far out of touch with the reality the rest of the airline lives he just was not suitable as a leader.

The entire structure of the APA needs a refresh, but Ferguson alone cannot do it. We need newer BOD's from outside the AA group to get it done.

Exactly. Union busting was the cornerstone of USAPA. That and not complying with an arbitration.

Yet we have former usapa principals endorsing Ferguson. Seems like a few former east pilots here need to face the new reality. We need leadership and Eric is a proven leader.

Soon to be a large pilot group sue these former APA leaders for damages. Its will send the message to the rest. It will cost them a fortune to defend and APA legal will give min support. Payback.

Thank God you got over it.

Time to unbury the dead. Now which dead thread would you like me to resurrect?

I was thinking about "Mixed Metal Fusion". Remember that one?
