Good luck on that. You are not going to strike. The union knows it and the company knows it. It would fail anyway, so why try? There are enough carriers to pick up the loads.

1224 pretty much has the lock on all domestic and the majority of the international lift at DHL. You'll be hard pressed to find "enough carriers" willing to cross a picket line or fly struck goods. A strike by any of the US based DHL carriers would cripple DHL across the board.

Picket set by any of the IBT represented contractors (air/ground) ought do the trick. Lest any wonder who’s calling shots at AAWW, need only look east…” your papers bitte?”

Three point you are riding fat and sassy on the coat tails of many pilots who fought for the contract that you now enjoy. It wasn't always that way at FedEx. Pilots sometimes have to fight for the contract that they deserve. Your post makes it sound like you have never fought that kind of fight and wouldn't know how to fight if you had to.

Lobbing insulting pot shots from the comfy sidelines at a company about which you know nothing only serves to illustrate your ignorance about the operation at DHL and the Atlas / Southern situation. Better to keep your uninformed opinions to yourself and let everyone think you are wrong than to open your mouth prove that point.

Oh, I walked the line in MIA (even during Hurricane Rita) while others went in the back door. As long as there is a corrosion corner on NW36th St. you will have those who will cross. Just like all companies AAWW will hold out for as long as they feel they need and probably give you 50% of what you asked for and still make money. It is the way of the world, they company always wins.

I guess the Alaska Air pilots will be taking a pay cut when they amalgamate the two contracts with Virgin???

I hope like hell that we are wrong about this but AAG managment has proven that loyalty is more of an insult to them.

A strike vote is always just symbolic. Until it isn't. Not many airline unions get an opportunity to strike anymore. Once the NMB finally allows self help, a court or PEMB always seems to force the union back to work in a matter of days, if not hours. Can't have the traveling public or American business handicapped.

Which is why the Teamsters actually have a legitimate strike threat. Since DHL is a German company, if a strike eventually happens, management will have less pull than a comparable US corporation would.

Atlas could be the largest airline to be allowed to _stay_ on strike in our lifetimes.
