We're completing our strike votes on the same schedule but the end of our scheduled mediation sessions are a couple weeks apart. I think the chances of our groups being on strike at the same time is low. How long did Spirit's last strike last? 5 days?

We have Harry Hoglander, the other NMB (board) member, overseeing our mediation sessions. Gerry McGuckin is our regular mediator, and by his resume I would consider him both experienced and favorable.

Currently the NMB is operating with two board members, Puchala and Hoglander, but it is typically three. Both current members are democrats, the third that left was a republican. Two republicans have been nominated by Trump's cabinet for the NMB but haven't been confirmed. After their confirmation the speculation is that Puchala will stay and Hoglander will go, leaving a total of three.

At least if the confirmation of the new NMB members is completed the Spirit pilots (probably) will have continuity with Puchala.
Sorry, I meant Patricia Sims, lol. Damn

Thanks, Puchala is the one who released us in 2010 so at least shes well versed on how scummy our management is!
