My friends from Comair, VOTE NO ON A PAY FREEZE.
I'm a furlough from 11/08. I understand that voting no would mean a much longer furlough period. I DON'T CARE. Do not sacrifice your financial well being, nor your family's comfort on a very long shot of a possibility. There will be no guarantee at all if you were to pass a pay freeze, of any growth at all. All that's going to do is increase their profit margin.
People like me will survive, maybe even go to other airlines/places. Do not drink their cool-aid in the hopes/dreams that it may help the furloughs.
Actually a revision to my statement, here are a few suggestion to a pay freeze I'd find acceptable: freeze the pay of the top 5-10 % most senior pilots (but increase everyone else's), and stop/cancel any and all "performance" incentives/bonuses to all management teams -salary should be enough for them-.
Thank you!.

Mod Note:

Yeah, time to say goodbye to this venerable thread. The original poster would have been so proud of its continued resurrection and interest.
