The way Atlas is treating its pilots now, no one should apply. Plenty of jobs elsewhere.
Management will continue to screw its employees as long as people are trying to work there.

Another reason not to come to Atlas.

That is probably just to make up for their stock losses when they figured this year’s earnings are going to be down 20% from last year.

Latest update from our tireless negotiations committee. The company decided to throw the Union a bone by TAing Deadheading and Hostile Area. They had to after missing estimates and reporting losses to the shareholders of 20% over last year due to “labor disruptions”. They’ve only had those articles for over 2 years....at this rate the other 18 major articles left open will be done by 2035.

None of the company decision makers showed for Scope negotiations, they assume if a future arbitrator gets Scope he’ll allow AAWH to wipe out all our industry standard or better hard fought gains by dry leasing all our jobs away with the stroke of a pen. No need to waste the executives valuable time...

The company also has another lawsuit waiting in the wings against the pilots for “an uptick in fatigue calls” in violation of an injunction from the last lawsuit; as they refuse to cut block hours again and instead work the dwindling number of pilots here to death. Mgt will be all smiles if the Judge imposes a monetary fine on the pilots this time.

Frank Lorenzo would be proud.

Pilots lost the amalgamation arbitration. No vote on any contract within the next two decades. RUN. RUN FAR AWAY. I'm a 747 Captain and my apps are out.

This guy doesn't understand that the pilots are the union. The pilots lost this round. And every other round. This place is dead.

What strategy would compel this particular mgmt group to do anything they didn’t want to do. I think most of us have come to the conclusion that these are willing to absorb considerable punishment to get the cba they want on the timeline they want.

Information, transparency and facts bring leverage and better decisions. There are plenty of ways to do this without violating an NDA or otherwise disclosing privileged information. Forget the personalities and style. Numbers speak.
