I’m not affiliated with a OO, so not sure what you mean by ‘fake union.’ I’m also really curious what kind of repercussions you are referring to? UA’s operation will be directly affected, forcing management to step in in UALPA’s ridiculous decisions.

At least that's what I got from it. It is my day off, so my English might not be up to ICAO standards atm.
Why UAL exclusive pilots too?

What did they do with AA? How is that agreement structured?

It’s on the Republic forum. They made it time of check-in.

Inability to ensure we are following the FOM priority for flight deck access because the gate agent software will now violate it for those particular two groups. Violating the FOM is technically an FAA enforceable violation.

*Just explaining the reasoning given by SAPA and the official letter so don’t shoot the messenger.

Mesa guy here....nobody is getting denied the Jumpseat. It’s just the priority has been redone. United pilots are the same as Delta to us now. And when we Jumpseat on them, we’re also at the bottom of their list. Certainly no Out and out denials though.

Why tho... If you think these mainline gods give a rats ass about our priority, you're grossly mistaken... If the shoe was on the other foot they'd leave us behind and not bat an eye. Frankly, they were already doing it.

Scott Kirby spoke in very general terms this week (at the United FTC) and stated he would like more control over the the regional product and while it will take time, consolidation into a handful of carriers might be the answer. What that means is anyone’s guess but most of the people in the room heard it as him wanting to grow the exclusive carriers and trim the others. Doesn’t mean it will happen and if MESA, SkyWest or Republic are the best performers it will be hard to justify in my opinion. Jumpseat wars are not productive. We need to support and work well with our regional carriers that support the United operation (in my opinion). It does get fuzzy when some of our regional partners get to declare jumpseat priority on multiple major airlines and their feeders but get upset when United gives exclusive UAX carriers priority on UAL (and the exclusive UAX Airlines). I got a bit of a laugh at the student council’s wording of “violation of FOM” etc and that justifying denial of jumpseats. So, it is a safety issue that you go behind exclusive UAX carriers on United Mainline jumpseats? You guys will always (obviously) have priority on your own jumpseat, not to mention you have priority over all of us on Delta and Alaska so you can use them (2 leg) to commute into your UAL hub to work with “priority “. Not a bad deal!

Just for clarification, does this decision by SAPA apply to ALL of our flights or just United side?
