Just asking.....

No, of course not and you know better. UPS and Atlas stay at the same hotel in ANC. Polar decided to picket the Hotel? UPS guys were unharassed, and allowed to go to work. Only Atlas folks were targeted, flying their own planes, on our their contracts, just like the UPS guys.

I do ask, was anyone else in the industry checking their cargo for Polar tags during Polars strike? I doubt it, but Atlas guys were climbing all over pallets to make sure no Polar stuff was being moved on our planes, and what do we get for it, attempt to put the S**B tag on us.

This is exactly why I won't discuss this any further. There is evidence and guys riding in a van that has trash bags over the windows to get to their airplane. Case closed you win. Regardless, we will see what happens after the spring arbitration and we can move on from there.

This forum is a lot better the that "other" one.

As far as the original thread Atlas is hiring and Polar is not. So come on over and join the fun.

Can anyone give a little insight on the Polar interview? How about the Atlas interview?

Thanks.

until Atlas gets rid of their practice of reporting any off line travel, and hotel accomodations, etc as imputed income, it's not for me! I don't like the idea of coming home and worrying about a negative paycheck!

Not sure what you mean by offline, and the only hotel taxed is when you are at your base. The only travel taxed is the travel to/from your base. If STN based, they never go there, so no tax. I think it happened once, where a FO got taxed more that he made, very unique situation.

offline transport or dead heading on a carrier other than your own, Still though you are being placed into position for their(Atlas) benefit, and they are charging YOU(the employee) with part of their cost of doing business. granted you can deduct that from your taxes, but not all of it. So you are in essence partially paying ATLAS for the privilege to work there. So, I just don't understand how any one would want to work at a place that engages in such a shady practice.

Educate me please, since I must not have the whole story here.
