Could we say this kind of thing any louder? I encourage those of you with pent up frustration and anxiety to get a hobby or something. If you want to try and nudge the wheel at this point in the game you should have tried to get on the negotiating committee in the first place. Trust me, I feel your pain but... Take up yoga, start a new cult or something...

Or, as a last resort you could volunteer for the union!

I get you... but I don't think anyone on the NMB would expedite a decision in our favor of they got an email from the GAO. ALPA knows what they are doing. Status quo bro.

Exactly right. The opposite is true. If the NMB feels that theyíre taking heat because of us, our pilots will pay the price. Itís happened before.

I'm curious. When has that happened before?

Ask the leadership at local 357 (Republic). They can tell you all about it. They hired a lobbying firm to get results from the NMB. It got them nowhere. Puchala took it personally. Tread carefully...

Interesting note posted by a Jet Blue pilot not too long ago about their management...

"BJ's business model relies on shortstaffing and shortchanging. It exploits legal frameworks and psychology.

The legal framework is the FOM, Bluebook, and FSM. It defines how they will exploit you to compensate for the lack of proper staffing.
The psychological framework is "culture", "juicers", and your natural desire to do an excellent job. I previously provided a link to a research paper
source: http://faculty.haas.berkeley.edu/cha...ialControl.pdf
Juicers are the tools (useful idiots) of this management mechanism of control.
It all relies on your natural ego to want to do a good job. It is deep within each of us. This is not a bad thing - quite the contrary. We should all strive to excel as servant leaders and employees, however, the company is exploiting our good will while not adequately compensating and respecting us.
They have developed a control mechanism whereby they staff workgroups at less than 100%. People want to do a good job so they will jump higher because it is in their nature, in their work ethic, to excel. For those that don't, there are legal mechanisms to pacify and control. Only people at the top benefit with ridiculously high paychecks while the rest of us beg for table scraps.
Let us not be enablers.
Let us not subsidize their exploitative model.


These are not honorable people."

Sound familiar?
