Please, PLEASE! Let's try to stay constructive. Some of us have a decision to make in the next few months.

There is really no comparison, they both have their pro n con's, only different is, one is industry only, the other one is not.

Where were Teamsters defending the FTDT rules, or the ATP (1500 hr) rule? Or in the fight against NAI? I saw ALPA advertisements and the PAC actively pursuing those objectives regularly.

There is no comparison, ALPA is a better union for airline pilots. Both can perform the basic contract negotiations.... itís everywhere else that ALPA is clearly superior.
