ALPA Dues reduction?!
 
Did I read correctly that ALPA is thinking to go from 1.9% to 1.85%?
If true, WTF?!?!?
It should be 1.2% at most and NO bonuses should ever be “taxed”!
With these massive increases in salaries ALPA is raking it in and I can’t stand for a Union where, most Pilots I talk to, are conservative and this Union is giving freely to Democrats... again WTF

It was sent out to us by our union a month or so ago. 1.85% on 1JAN20.

I don't get it either. Everyone knows all the really good flying jobs are non union. Meanwhile AA has been waiting for 18 years for permission to strike.

it's not ALPA's fault pilots like to vote against their own best interest.

Actually ALPA PAC gave 51% to Democrats and 49% to Republicans last year,...but why let facts get in the way of a good story. ;)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think they can give any of your dues to political campaigns, I think only the PAC can do that (which you don't have to participate in).

And even ALPA PAC is going to very targeted, ie not vomiting cash all over over every lefty cause and agenda in sight, but rather selectively focused on candidates who's are likely or proven to help unions, pilots, and maybe airline aviation.

Facts?

Where we’re going, we don’t need facts.

"Well people are saying." It's the new fact source in the era of fake news.
