    Truth.

    Working class Americans helping lift one another up. Imagine that!

    Go get 'em, B6'ers!

    if further unions come to B6, it is because B6 wasn't smart enough to pay its people high enough salaries to keep its people from choosing a union.

    and it also doesn't mean that even with a union, B6 people will be paid better than its peers at other airlines.

    I'm sure DOL documents for the IAM will show us how "grassroots" of an effort this campaign is for B6. NOT

    I am against worthless unions.

    You can't figure out that pro-worker means being against unions that don't deliver.

    You can't figure out unions negotiating contracts at other airlines raise the pay at DL.

    no, they don't because DL employees receive higher pay on average than every other airline except for WN... whose employees have been locked in negotiations that have left them without increases for years.


    In fact, DL has provided more and larger increases in compensation than for any other airline.



    Remember that the APFA went running back to AA mgmt. to increase the value of their contract in response to DL's increases for its FAs.

    Your statement is incorrect. The opposite is in fact what actually has taken place.

    DL pay raises have raised the bar for other airlines.

    ruin or not, it is factually incorrect.

    Truth is always the casualty of emotions and that dictum rules the day and night on this forum.

    DL employees have received larger and more frequent compensation than their peers at other airlines.

    If B6 employees believe they need a union, it is probably because they are tired of watching their peers at DL continue to out earn them.

    further, let the record show that Dog Wonder chose to introduce DL to this thread.

    If you are signed in, there should be a drop down arrow next to your name. Click on that and you should see a "manage ignore preferences" link. Once there, you can add any user you want. You can block posts, signatures, and messages- or any combo thereof...
