If it were me... Iíd get out. Iíd get out fast to avoid the stigma that follows.

All major Unions have been very clear imho.

Dumpster fire indeed. This is now officially the worst place to work in the industry.

This really shouldn't come as any surprise. The FX guys have forever and a day been the most anti-union entity to ever walk the earth. Persona non grata to any FX'er that ever tries to get on my airplane.

I feel awful for the folks who supported the Union. Ricci has a proven past of treating his pilots terribly and the majority of the guys believe that he has changed.

There is going to be a short-lived honeymoon where Ricci will treat his pilots well and show them that they did the right thing. It may even last 3-5 years. Then, he will start taking away pay, retirement, work rules and everything else. He will say it is ok because it is good for the Onesky family.

I grew up anti-union in a town where factory unions grew too strong and were moved out of the country. It decimated my town. Reluctantly, I became a union member in the aviation industry. It only took about 2-3 years to realize that I will never fly for another aviation company that is not represented by a Union.

Good luck to you all. For those poor fellas who supported the Union, get out. And do it fast...

Default How stupid can you get ?

These shortsighted morons probably don’t realize that they just gave Ricci every opportunity to screw them over every chance he gets.
Now they have no recourse,no seat at the table and absolutely no voice when it comes to their quality of life on the road.
I mean,lets face it QOL on the road at Flex/flops was pretty crappy when they had a union,now.......
Just wait till they start putting these guys in fleabag hotels an hour from their airport just to get a few dollars cheaper rate.
Just wait till whatever little benefits they had go away.....
Hopefully the taint of belonging to a union busting scab outfit wont follow the pilots that voted to not De-cert as they start leaving for other opportunities.
As for the guys that voted to De-cert....you will get the job you deserve.
