I know we aren't negotiating on behalf of non-pilot employees, but ending the practice for would pay dividends by eliminating one more thing which the company uses to dehumanize their employees and pit the rest of the airline against the pilots. Not to mention it would be nice for passengers to be able to deplane without juicers running them over and impeding their exit. So f-ing tacky.
Hope everyone is packing a parachute for the upcoming grind-fight or flight guys. Save your dough, update your resume and logbook.

...and the company has pleasant little anti-organizing propaganda in the crew rooms for the FAs to see.

When you employ words like dehumanize the argument seems very disingenuous. Many very human individuals cleans for a living and support families cleaning toilets and thugs far worse than trash on a plane. Me thinks you are a slightly melodramatic in your posts. Instead of cleaning, go find a blind person and assist them to the gate, or help someone in need, also not dehumanizing.

Are you this vocal in reality, or just here? I also hate the cleaning before the passengers get off. I have to shove the cleaners out of the way just to leave the cockpit.

Can someone refresh my memory for tax time?

JCCF is a tax deduction
BPF is not

Is that correct?
