Default b6direct.com

Well, I just found out about B6Direct.com after reading...

New York Governor Cuomo Steps Into Union Campaign To Organize JetBlue Flight Attendants



It's amazing how far BJ will go...

  • At the bottom of the website "#KeepB6Direct, B6Direct.com & TWUExposed.com are created, funded, and managed by JetBlue Inflight Crewmembers in support of keeping the direct relationship. This website and/or posts are not affiliated, operated, or sponsored by Inflight Leadership or JetBlue. The views expressed are those of our own and not on behalf of JetBlue." --- Yeah right!
  • They appear to be aware of legalisms, which is rare for an enthusiast website "© 2018 B6Direct.com". I wonder what they would do if the FAs set up a "realB6Direct.com"? Who would sue the copyright infringer? I wonder if they have a shield company running the website.
    • I remember when United sued "Untied", which was a website set up to show all of United's problems. Now untied.com displays "For more than 20 years, Untied.com has provided air travelers with information about United Airlines, including how the airline treats its passengers and employees, resources to help maintain their rights, and a public database for posting and reading complaints about experiences with the airline. In 2012, United Airlines sued Dr. Jeremy Cooperstock, the maintainer of this website, in an effort to stop him from making these resources available. On June 23, 2017, a Canadian Federal Court judge found that an injunction was warranted against Dr. Cooperstock’s activities.
      While Cooperstock pursues his legal options, Untied.com will not be providing the resources described above. If you’d like to help, please consider donating to Untied.com’s legal defence fund.
      ".
  • Meet the team ? B6 Direct So it appears they all have status in the company and therefore are getting special treatment.
This website was professionally made. The graphic art quality is top notch. I doubt any of the people on the "team" above have such skills. Also, they totally stripped all graphics of meta-data so you can't even tell what programs were used to edit the images. I do know it's a WordPress site hosted on GoDaddy and partially made with the plugin called WPBakery. None of this tells me anything except that whoever made this site has money, expertise (e.g. a contractor or BJ in house web designer & graphic artist), and legal due diligence.

In any case, I'm not surprised if BJ really is behind this website. What I am amazed is how a politician is supporting the FA union so forwardly. Maybe B6ALPA needs to use Governor Cuomo as a mouthpiece for getting people to understand why pilots are worth so much:







This communique is for entertainment purposes only. It does not implicitly or explicitly acknowledge employment with any air carrier nor is any relationship implied. This communique does not represent the opinions or policies of ALPA or JB ALPA and does not represent the collective pilot group, ALPA, nor does it imply collective bargaining, advocacy, or workforce actions intended to disrupt operations.

Too late- B6 has been so rotten to inflight that itll pass 65%+.
Blewjet is going to have to deal with each pilot group unionizing- They deserve every headache that comes with it.
Direct relationship my a$$

They certainly could have easily kept JB non-union if they had been what they say they are.

Last PEA they could have matched Delta rates and there a guaranteed “NO” Union vote. 2013 Delta wages are 2018 below market wages. BJ coukd have rammed another garbage PEA down our throats with airport reserve, positive check in and high speeds by now.

Let’s talk about how the TWU got a powerful NY politician involved in a union vote. We’re 3 years into negotiations and ALPA is on the sidelines eating popcorn and sipping a beer. Seriously? ALPA stands to fill their overflowing coffers with more dough with this contract and they can’t bend an ear towards JB ELT about how its Time to get his done?

We’re doubly doomed.

Unions like @transportworker are key to growing the middle class. Good luck to workers at @JetBlue – a great company – as they vote on forming a union.

For those of you that were around, did Barger say and promise all the same things we are hearing now to get a No vote?

Barter just has to put up so,e real money in the 2013 PEA and he would have received a NO vote. Today’s Contract is the same as 2013. They don’t want to pay. So now they get a nasty pilot group. That doesn’t mix well with the rainbow happy unicorn brand. So they’ll pay one way or another.
