    Hell, unions themselves are based on money.....period!
    How many unions, do you think would be in "BUSINESS" right now without dues payers giving them money?

    And nope, never said I was laid off or dropped.

    OK, so maybe they just got kicked in one nut.....feel better now?

    Personally, I think it's hilarious, how all the pro-union peeps are swarming all over the good news at DL, trying their damnest to play it down.

    Especially 700 with his whiney BS about getting raises in lieu of PS when he was an advocate of just that, up until the day DL announced the news!

    The pro union peeps and IAM don't want potential voters to know the whole truth.
    BTW 700, when's the last time you check the tires and washed the windshield on the IAM's "CORPORATE" jet?

    Well this is nothing more than a wasted display of circle jerking now.

    For better or worse (who knows) congratulations again on your raises. I honestly hope there's no catch to it. We've ALL earned an end to all the crap we've been through the last dozen years.

    Keep loving your company people.

    The truth is (as commavia or FWAAA has pointed out in th past), that non-union employees should be compensated higher than their union counterparts.

    They don't enjoy the job security of a CBA.

    At DL, It is a simple concept. Low wage workers (Ready Relief) supplement higher wage workers.

    It sucks, but until there are more RR workers than full time, there will be no union. Delta has calculated this...as has Wal-Mart and others who use the government to give benefits to their employees.

    They will also pay just a little more than CBA covered employees to keep unions out. As the economy suffers they will cut pay, because they can. As the workers revolt, they will fire a couple (because they can).

    Then they will repeat.

    At least we don't have a Scott Walker showing off a union built Harley while MF'ing the union that built it for him.

    What a POS!

    Agreed, so really? How long does it take for a union to send, let's say 10,000 cards to employees, telling them we need them signed or not sign within a specific amount of time.
    How long has the card drive for ramp been going on now? Anybody?

    While I do not support union representation for myself, I'll say it again, I support the right to organize, if the MAJORITY, decides so.
