Only about 7 years too late.

Less than a drunken brawl or a hospitality suite. I'd say it's money well spent.

Great video. They’re right. It’s time. Donatelli told me he’d put something good in front of us and I said you’ll be judged on actions (good contract... not crap) not words. We voted that crap show down and voted his sorry behind out and got something better. I feel the same now. This group is “woke”. I’m willing to go to the mat. I can wait. They offer us crap? Bring out the rat. Blow it up and keep it inflated on Virginia Ave. Billboards. Orange lanyards. Full page ads. I don’t think there’s a middle ground. If they show there’s not going to be a fair and quick deal, then we pull out and go nuclear. Easy for me. Hopefully not. But I have no patience for bull crap when the company make big dough and we still haven’t regained our sacrifices.

I think he’s trying to find out if he got hired after all the pay cuts and give backs were completed. I’ve heard a few guys hired post 07 complaining about everything the company took from them when they’ve actually only seen pay raises and forward movement since they’ve been here.

A lot has happened since 07 - a lot of PROFIT, to be specific. Measuring our contract by gains or losses from previous contracts misses the big picture... which is (IMHO) big (and sustainable) profits. Don't lose the forest for the trees. Follow the money (specifically buybacks and expenditures to prevent organization by the FAs).

As far as I'm concerned, everyone on the seniority list has the prerogative to complain all they want. I'm not saying it will have any effect, but complaining is not a privilege one earns. If someone isn't happy with the share of the pie they're getting, so be it!

"and we still haven’t regained our sacrifices.


Well if he is appropriating my(one of the many) sacrifice and it has become his sacrifice I have some thoughts. If he got hired in 2014, I have some thoughts....mainly, I hope he's not leading anything. It's kinda like a 10 year old white kid trying to lecture me about his sacrifices during the black civil rights movement......If they are black and 70 and complaining I am more apt to listen.....just call me shallow
