Default What’s going on?

So I’ve been getting emails and text messages from the union all day about staying engaged and ready. It’s going to happen quickly...I guess they are stuck in the negotiating process?

Yes. I’m sure negotiating with these guys isn’t any easier than a few years ago. We will know when it’s agreed upon.

In a brief text from my Capt rep. “ Details will be later today “ - we will be bidding for the colas for APRIL so it may be a super short bid window. - IE less than 24 hours

I’d be willing to bet that the company is trying to wipe everyone’s schedule clean so they don’t have to pay people who loaded their schedules... id also be willing to bet they’re trying to get rid of the MCO for April... they’re definitely trying some bs...

Rightfully so. Picking up open time you know will cancel when our jobs are at stake? Despicable!!!!

I have a feeling you may be right. I wonder if the podcast was intended as a dosis of Kool-Aid more than a showing of leadership.

Man up you’re dealing with a company that made over a billion dollars while saying they couldn’t afford payrates because of Brexit. They have plenty of capitol to weather this storm by the fact they aren’t even sure if they want to take the bailout if it doesn’t benefit them enough. If they didn’t want to pay people for April they should’ve offered 50 colas like every other airline weeks ago not wait until the last minute literally and put it on the union to save them.

Loa 15 on the alpa app is out. Basically same Ava notifications and 50 hour COLAs for April, may and June if you bid it. Minimum credit you need to finish with is also down to 50 vs the 60.

If your performance in the COLA thread didn’t establish it conclusively, we now all know the depth of your naivety. You would get destroyed at a used car dealership.
