Had a good turn out at ORD. We had a permit for 50 and over 200 showed up. After the local law enforcement asked us to "Thin the ranks", we went in shifts.

Denver was a smash hit also with more personnel than required to man three floors and all the doors on the UAL side.

I'm sure there were zero XJT guys there. After how the CAL MEC effed us I would venture to say zero to little support from any of us.

Why would the CAL MEC support Xjt pilots? There job is to support Cal pilots.

I guess its kinda like ALPA representing both mainline and regional pilots even as our jobs are stolen from us by the other. Makes a lot of sense.

Okay, now back to the topic of info picketing.

Ummmm.... You are going to have a REALLY hard time finding any sympathy from pretty much any mainline pilot from ANY airline.

Sympathy? LOL! I just think it's funny how the CAL MEC basically stabs us in the back in regards to pass travel and jumpseating THEN they ask us to come out and carry signs for them... Signs that say "Stop outsourcing!" or "who's flying your plane?" lol.
