Default 401K Dues

Congratulation ALPA pilots! The BOD approved a dues reduction for DAL pilots while increasing dues for regional pilots if you contribute to your 401K. Several MEC's stood united against this but most of the weak d1ck MEC's caved.

Make sure you check and see how your MEC voted.

Mainline pilots have been paying those same 401k dues for many years.

Let's tell the whole story and not just part of it shall we...

Mainline pilots only paid dues on 401k contributions IF they had a pension plan in addition to the 401k.

Sorry, but this yet another reason to dump ALPA......

I like the email they just sent out saying that we all got a reduction in dues....It's bad enough that they do it, now they have to be misleading about it too.....

Not just a pension plan, ANY plan. I don't have a pension and I pay dues on my 401k.

Most anything from the DPA lately is laced with poor information, half truths and downright lies. Caplinger has fallen off his rocker in a bad bad way.

Desperation is a stinky cologne.

You have a retirement in addition to a 401k. For most ALPA members we only have a 401k.

The fact is, your dues are going down, while the majority of ALPA members are going to pay more in dues. This was a huge mistake and will hopefully be the end of ALPA.
