A320Driver, I agree with you Sir!!
This circumstance is in a never ending cycle for We the employee's.
There is obviously No apparent limit to what they will ask of us..or attempt to do to us. The only hope for an end to Siegel and Bronners shinanigans is to let them take this to Chapter 7..and call it a day.
I would have never imagined things getting to this point...but then again we have never had anything like this to take place to base a history upon..with maybe the Eastern issue being an exception?
U is but the first to take the plunge into oblivion during this new enviroment...well of the majors anyway. I'm sure United will be facing an alike circumstance in due course.
I fail to see how Bronner hopes to gain anything by trying to "Strong Arm" us into something that will not work for anyone.
Should the Employee's or Unions cave on thier demands? , this will create a highly suspect operation in terms of safety..as well as function. This is something I would just as soon not be party too.
I for one , will not support anything that speaks of "Outsourcing" of a single job in any work group classification...least of all while management continues to make boneheaded choices while drawing premium salaries and benefits by comparison to those whom actually operate the airline as we know it. *I think Lee Iacoca of Chrysler should be a shining example of a CEO's conduct under these conditons
I'm sadened that things have had to come to this...especially when it was avoidable to begin with. They cannot and will not rebuild this company at the rank and files continued expense. I do think the folks remaining , including those at the WO's should send an across the board NO to any proposal under the current conditions being leveled at us , This is the only way we can make a return throw of the "Monkey-Wrench" back at those whom have failed to steer this company properly.
The final straw has come for me..when a minority Investor becomes a "Dictator" of policy and the final direction of things. I agree again..Threats are not something I take either!!
How could anything be has flawed as to allow less than 38% of anything to control the remainder? This is royally screwed up!!
This is without fail , the sadest circumstance imaginable...without having the doors closed entirely. That I'm afraid is next to come...and maybe it will come as a relief to some? , once they come to terms with that prospect. I for one have never kidded myself about this not being a viable option.or potential goal all along. I wonder who has found a backdoor method to line thier pockets by destroying us from within?
