Default ALPA National Restoration Strategy

What exactly is Captain Moak's strategy for restoration of our bankruptcy contracts and food stamp first officer regional pay?

At Delta our three top executives got pay increases over 40% on their non bankruptcy pay.

And the Delta pilots?

January 1st, 2014 a 3% increase on our bankruptcy pay. Coupled with a 33% reduction in profit sharing and increased health care costs.

Is that a raise or a pay cut?

Has Captain Moak ever uttered a word about restoration? Has he ever mentioned the record profits? The dividends? The stock buy back?

With no accounting for inflation we still make far less than the pay rates that are a decade old.

What is a union for?

How is Captain Moak's pay?

How is his pension?

They are golden. He is very adept at taking care of himself.

How does he look in the mirror when he signs deals where regional first officers flying $20 million dollar jets are making $20,000 a year?

The emperor truly has no clothes.

But he does have is hat.

I'm gonna let 88 driver field this one. I'm sure by now, it is just a copy/paste for him.

Well, since you asked here's a mailing from DPA a few days ago:

----------------

DPA would like to apologize for inaccurately reporting ALPA Presidential compensation in past news items. We just uncovered ALPA's IRS Form 990 Tax Return and found that we missed the number by a WIDE margin.

For instance, we previously reported ALPA President 2011 total compensation as $540,408. We missed the impact of "fringe benefits" on the total. The accurate number as reported by ALPA to the IRS is:

$862,436

We also uncovered Captain Prater's income in 2010 of:

$1,411,665

Also, General Manager Jalmer Johnson's 2011 income was:

$1,006,331

Getting kind of sick of people blaming ALPA for everything. I'm no ALPA supporter, but if you want to know why we have that contract when we could have gotten more, look no further than your fellow pilot. Our pilot group voted it in. It past the last layer of defense.

You raise a great point, however it came with a very, very serious and less than honest DALPA sell job. Threats, unattainable projections and empty promises.

This next time if we vote YES again for a substandard TA we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Fool me once.....

I know Prater is back on the line, I wonder if he is double dipping. UAL pay plus his ALPA pension?

These guys sure do a good job taking care of themselves.

The $1,006,331 figure was his 2011 income reported to the IRS.

That figure includes expenses... consider having to report the value of your company hotel overnights, as part of your income.
