Default History Lessons

I thought I'd repost the links to Flying the Line Vol. 1 & 2 along with the APA history. These are pretty good reads (although a little disjointed at times) you should all bring on an overnight layover to refresh your memories about "union" realities.

Flying_The_Line_1

Of course, this history will soon be lost to the eternity of electronic gobbledegook.

If you are trying to establish or portray yourself as a voice of reason, you are failing miserably.

Despicable.

My agenda is against the discriminatory BEHAVIOR of labor unions against their minorities. The APA stripped me and many other of my seniority if FAVOR OF THEIR MAJORITY. While the physical actions and racial overtones of Jim Crow were certainly much WORSE than that of our cause, the practice by APA and ALPA are of the same discriminatory ilk. And to that I say if your one of them, and you support that action, them you are what the union defines as a "SCAB". PURE AND SIMPLE.

I am anti-union, anti-ALPA, anti-APA ...


Your anger issues are obviously clouding your judgment.

WOW! If I didn't know better I'd say you're stalking me.
Anger issues? how about reality?
I pointed out that:
The Fido program is probably going to lose funding and why.
The history of pilot unions haven't changed a bit.....if you read the history.
And soon, if you weren't aware, the NRTW act is going to pass and the pilot union coffers will be drained.
That NAI is going to become a major threat to ALPA and the rest.
That American has no LEGAL objection to make opposing NAI (you wouldn't know this unless you are an American employee and can watch the crew news)

My point has been ALWAYS that if the pilots don't think about SOP'S, fundamental foundational principles and why they keep getting their "you know what" kicked by management(S) (plural) they are will ALWAYS BE on the losing end of things. APA is fractionalized. Anyone who works here will tell you that. Why should ANYONE throw money at associations who provide LITTLE TO NO BENEFIT to the rank and file???

I would LOVE the new hire pilots to know that they have a stable and prosperous future but stripping fractional pilots and the smaller merged components of airlines of our dignity and to that the legacy for new hire pilots is nothing but a nebulous endeavor for their futures.

Say what you will, but these FACTS remain. Toughen up. You're going to need it.

He also advocates for "Right to Work" (for less) legislation which is slowly rearing by its ugly head on the national scale.

A real pilots' advocate and trade unionist.

And ergo, like I said: Pilots will continue to stick their head in the sand. All these changes I'm trying to WARN you of and I'm the enemy. Damn, you guys will always fall for the circus show slight of hand.

Nope. Wrong. You've been debated and soundly defeated on other threads. You're either a teenage troll or highly medicated. In either case you're unable to string a single substantive argument together in a single post.

We're moving on without you. My advice is to try another hobby. Golf, or Minecraft.

Poor RT66, his APA union didn't treat him nice. Now he's on an anti-union crusade.
