Since Skywest pilots work basically not for profit. Can't we qualify for a free .ORG site?

Time to get an ALPA drive. This is the time. Spread the word. We need volunteers.

It was about a rich guy who does this for fun telling every one we should just take a lowball offer because no matter how insignificant it was, it was enough.

Hmm, this is a pretty good idea. I just made a forum for my airline, but a subreddit is damn easy to get going.

Once the vote is over (passes) and the threat of a NO vote is gone, the forums will open back up. There will be a big sticky about not to 'hurt' people (one guy was talking about pain and suffering...) and SAPA will continue to represent management while selling out the people they are supposed to 'represent'. Sad thing is the majority of pilots do not even realize what just happened.

It's not unlike the US constitution. We don't let 17 year old people vote either. There is a good reason for these rules.
Considering, Endeavor's MEC chair walked right into the 119 Chief Pilot's chair upon completion of his term......


And for the record if ALPA were actually a union we probably wouldn't have some of today's issues.

That's true. ALPA is no different than CAPA (which APA, SWAPA, IPA, IBT, FAPA are member of). It's an association of independent airlines. Each MEC makes their own decisions for their pilots.

Seriously?




All these underhanded moves by SAPA and you have to ask?





What's it going to take to wake up this pilot group??
