I really didn't have one until I came here. I didn't know much about them and could have cared less to be honest. Then stumbled into this situation where I ran into the most hatred and ridicule you can imagine. I have never seen anything like this before with the cult like beliefs. Riding the employee bus was an eye opener as well. Have you ever just sat and listened to the people on the employee bus? I have never heard such misery and disgruntle in my life. You can't even go to the bar up here without the waitress b!tching about her union. What the hell is a waitress doing belonging to a union? Read some of the topics on the other airline forums. If this forum is any indication what unionism has become, (I think it is), then you guys are in a sad sad state. You guys are so blind or maybe in denial or just so brainwashed you can't even see it. I really don't know what my obsession is with unionism, maybe it just rubs me the wrong way of how a cult such as this can have such an overwhelming influence over such a great number of people. I can see the not so bright people out there falling for this fallacy you guys call unionism but most of you people here seem too be pretty smart. Now that is flat out scary. Oh yes it does, you just have to know how to make it happen and sometimes it just happens. The problem here though, is that the only change is that you guys are getting screwed more and more every year. There is nothing being done to even start a slow change in the right direction. The pin with the "Remove Before Flight" streamer has been removed. I would like to stay here and see this all the way through but I have already missed one summer away from home, I do not intend on missing another. The handle will be pulled. NWA wanted a new workforce and now they have it. The problem is they don't know how to handle it. We gave them the chicken, eggs and hand basket and now they want to lock us in the coup? That is not going to happen. I would say this would be realized really soon but the AMFA Boys are returning as AMFA Scabs at about the same rate we are leaving. It will not be long before they are dealing with another union. That is sad for the members because the union will be to stupid to do anything of value for them, but the members will still feel better about themselves.
