what's w. the quick NMB meeting IPAers
 
Quick question, why did the NMB call you back for a meeting but no scheduled negotiations? What I heard was that you were placed on hold until your demands came down, and with all the commotion going on about your chairman flying on a struck airline out to Hawaii; he gave in in order to get this meeting. details?

I guess that brings our "demands" down closer to yours!

I'll trade you industry topping pay for quality of life and a good work environment any day, BrownTail.

Come on boys.............This bickering of "Mine is Bigger than yours" produces nothing.................

Bottom line is that UPS Pilots know what issues are important to them and FDX guys know what we want.........................

Ultimately we both want good contracts we can live with and I for one hope UPS guys get the best deal they can.

Lighten Up on each other Gents!:cool:

negotiations
 
Sasquatch...

Please tell us all where you heard this information. Hope it was a better source than one of the van drivers or the fedex pilot who came to our meeting telling us that commercial tickets were more important than scope.

If you have anything of value to add, please do so. In the absence of that, please keep your posts germane to what you know, not what you think you might have heard.

Do you honestly believe this?

7576 and EdPM, my source is in your committee structure, a friend of a friend of a friend. I brought this up for discussion because I found it so fascinating. Instead of attacking me, the messenger, let's talk about what is really happening.

Did your Chairman fly on Northwest Airlines, the same airline he forbade UPS to book crewmembers on, or not? Thank you gents.

How many people do you know at Brown that are related or married to (or soon to be) people at Fedex.....Not too hard to figure out where it came from.

Squatch...if I told you I heard anything from "a friend of a friend of a friend," would you give much credibility to what I had to say?

Ever play "telephone" when you were a kid?

friend of a friend of a friend
 
Sasquatch....

Just as I thought....absent a name, your assertion lacks credibility. I, too, can make up anything and report that I heard it from unimpeachable sources. Just saying that doesn't make it so. Put up or shut up.
