Such a high sense of entitlement on the LUAL side. Also what's up with all the north campus furloughed transfers wearing red ID clips? Another way to show someone that they are different? If you are not happy at LCAL, then find who forced you to take the offered LCAL position and get ****ed at them...., or think back to where you were prior to being offered a position at LCAL.

Can someone explain the "RED CLIP" thing? I was given one and told that is was a way to identify who among the group were furloughed UAL brothers and sisters, now I read all this negative stuff about the "RED CLIP" not sure if a few RED CLIPPERS went out and cut some toe nails or what, either way I am back to the regular "Clear Clip".

Do you really think it is anti cal, or could it just be a sense of comradeship amongst the furloughees?

The some of the UAL guys have a sense of entitlement... not unlike the DAL pilots....

The red clips were designed to allow the 2172/1436 to ID each other... however, with the UAL wings on the CAL pilot shirts, old school, orange crew bag tag and different demeanor... are the red clips even needed?

In addition, the first few months of UAL pilots going thru the CAL school house... were a little onerous if not cantankerous...

There is an unintended consequence of the red clips... trying to set yourself apart... can.... set yourself apart..... which helps enable divide and conquer....

I guess some like to make a "stand-out statement" with RED??

As I've said before, the contract is the contract. Enforce it or don't give a **** to your peril. Doesn't matter what side you're on. Jeffy is already angry about the hotel debacle. Don't give him an inch.

The Stopover Store in IAH sells blue ones now.

Dr. Seuss was a brilliant man.

The Sneetches, by Dr. Seuss

Now, the Star-Bell Sneetches had bellies with stars.
The Plain-Belly Sneetches had none upon thars.
Those stars weren’t so big. They were really so small.
You might think such a thing wouldn’t matter at all.

But, because they had stars, all the Star-Belly Sneetches
Would brag, “We’re the best kind of Sneetch on the beaches.”
With their snoots in the air, they would sniff and they’d snort
“We’ll have nothing to do with the Plain-Belly sort!”
And, whenever they met some, when they were out walking,
They’d hike right on past them without even talking.

--------------------------more Sneetch shenanigans-------------------


Then, when every last cent of their money was spent,
The Fix-It-Up Chappie packed up. And he went.
And he laughed as he drove In his car up the beach,
“They never will learn. No. You can’t Teach a Sneetch!”

But McBean was quite wrong. I’m quite happy to say.
That the Sneetches got really quite smart on that day.
The day they decided that Sneetches are Sneetches.
And no kind of Sneetch is the best on the beaches.
That day, all the Sneetches forgot about stars and whether
They had one, or not, upon thars.

WOW!!!!
People are reading too much into the red clip.
How about the "Ex-CON" stuff? How about the guys who are wearing the CONTINENTAL AIRLINES ties still?
Works both ways.
I wear my red clip, I have the old yellow Flight manual bag tag(because I wasn't given the new blue one), and an old United (tulip) bag tag because I wasn't given a new one...
And if I wasn't such a fashionista, I'd wear my blue overcoat, because s-CAL didn't pay for a black one (I am going to write off the one I bought on my taxes)...
Now for the pilots wearing old United wings with the CAL uniform.... that's a little over the top (IMO). I would wear my old United wing tie clip if it wasn't such a pain to remove/ put back on everytime I did my tie...

Welcome to the new USAIR. This greviance is just the tip of the iceberg that the UAL MEC has planned. The contract is finished, the sUAL pilots got the lions share of retro pay, and are now focused on grieving any and all parts of the contract that they did not get to manipulate through the normal negoiating processes. sUAL has now proven that they have no intention of proceeding with an amicable integration or representing any pilots other than sUAL pilots. This attempt to circumnavigate the agreed upon bid process is nothing more than the sUAL MEC holding the sCAL pilots at gunpoint to get what they desired but refused to do so in order to start their self-righteous pity-party as a means to an end.

I still have my ATA crew tag on my bag...right next to my orange United one. Is there a new crew tag for the combined airline yet?
