Like I said .... 2x already... it isn't that big of a deal....

most of the guys in my class didn't wear the clip.... maybe it is more of a 2172 than 1436...... we didn't want to be associated with the cantankerous red clip guys. We were there to complete training... not be political..... maybe I'll get a real UNITEd blue clip that means I am not CAL, not a SCAB, not a 570, not a 2172... combine that with my inverted ALPA pin, everyone will know exactly where I politically stand.

Or...... maybe...

I'll just wear my ALPA pin upright, fly professionally, defend the JCBA militantly and lookout for all of my union bothers and sisters.... minus the scabs of course.... (What is more hilarious than a dead scab? A dead scab in clown suit.... )

(y)

You mean the ATA/AWA/Airtran/SWA one?

UniTedinental won't fit on a standard tag.

Tulip on my flight bag.....
Ribbons and talismans to tell you what I wuz?
Nah, no thanks, that's livin' in the past, cuz.
As a charter member of the double furlough surprise and impending 'all furlough time is not created equal' SLI Super Bone Club (Aug '00 hire), I sincerely congratulated the newly minted 737 Capt (2005 hire) I met at last drill weekend and told him that when I return I'll happily suit up in whatever the standard issue uniform is and cordially jerk gear for him and everyone else in strict adherence to the JCBA with no bellyaching about how this fickle b!tch mistress of a career has treated my left seat office mate du jour better than it has treated me. (Obviously, when inevitably paired with a scab, I'll less cordially but just as professionally execute my duties and add the obligatory slam-click that vermin has earned. )
It sucks to have been on the receiving end of so many shaftings, but it's not ya'll's fault that I got on the career escalator that promptly broke then went backwards, then forwards, then backwards again and yes, I do have the recurring dream where I'm driving around a sharp curve on a cold, rainy night and suddenly there's Glenn Tilton frozen in my headlights, but what's done is done.

To quote Lech Walesa, "It is hardly possible to build anything if frustration, bitterness, and a mood of helplessness prevail."

Only way another pilot will know anything from me about the past 13 years of rollercoasters and reamings is if the ALPA Pilot's Fund comes up in conversation. Then I'll say: "Thanks for kicking in to the fund that covered my health insurance premiums. It made a huge difference when my kid tore up his shoulder wrestling and my wife got in a car accident."
