Default Furloughs coming to Atlas

Senior management reached out to the union this week regarding scope.

In an effort to strong arm the union, they are threatening to outsource even more flying so they can get the CBA they want.

It wouldn’t surprise me to see them do a small furlough of 50-75 pilots just to see if the union blinks and scare the troops into taking the first offer.

Apparently it was a very heated meeting- the end is no where near.

Wha...didn't I just read somewhere that Southern is getting 15 737s? I'm trying to see how this is going to work.

Haha! Does the ABX pres have a side consulting contract with Atlas now? Sounds like the same tactics he’s tried with so much success at ABX.

Hete and Soaper threaten furloughs all the time. It’s the go to game. Ex Pres Starkovich and VP Gray played the same game. My suggestion is to get your walking shoes ready.

Germany and Hong Kong Today, Unemployment Line Tomorrow! Should be the new advertising banner here on APC.

Per our EXCO Chairman:
At the meeting, I was particularly alarmed by some of the comments that company officials made. Company executives expressed their main goals relating to Scope to include the ability to dry lease aircraft without being constrained by any protections for the Atlas and Southern pilots if they decide to sell off all or part of the company. They further told us that having pilots attached to the business might reduce what they can get for any given part of the company.”

Today it was announced that the most anti pilot, anti union executive in the company is being promoted to CEO effective Jan 1. A Frank Lorenzo protege and lawyer by trade, he would love to outsource ALL our jobs, yesterday. Depending on our arbitration award in a couple months he may get license to do just that.

The good news is anyone who comes to Atlas and Southern now to become furlough fodder probably won’t get the chance to waste much of their career here and can move on to an actual airline ( not a holding company that leases airplanes ) that provides real compensation and stability.

Sorry to hear that guys. I’m so glad I was able to get out when I did. There are a lot of good guys and gals at Atlas. I wish you all luck getting to better jobs. If it’s true dietrich is the new ceo. You’re going to need it!!

Does this scope clause have anything to do with the clause that Amazon can buy up to 40% of Atlas. Or sell off the Southern side to DHL Bahrain maybe. I don’t see anything happening on the Atlas side unless they switch operations to Ireland Bahrain etc
