* Unless you are based in MKE then F@#$ it because we are mad at Midwest and going to take it out on you.

They paid too many people to transfer out and don't want to let anyone back in, because of the possibility of paying people twice. We are the only base so under staffed that as soon as bids come out we are below min reserve staffing EVERYDAY. We are so short on people that we are getting company need flying over the holidays. For the last few months it was hard to get lines over 75 hours. This month people have 90 to over 100 hours with CN flying. It's nice to see that Skywest can and will s!@# on employees just because of the base they are in. They are pissed at Midwest because they are not paying us and they believe Midwest gets what they pay for. I hope they understand how a lot of people in the base are feeling right now and how they will preform because of it. These unhappy employees will move throughout the company and start spreading negative attitudes. I now have a totally different view.

Anyone know what happened with the letter that the FA’s all signed and sent in?

I’m happy everyone in base is good about writing up each and every maintenance issue.
Also with the cold and flu season already here please make smart decisions when determining your fitness for flight. You’re not doing anyone a favor by coming in sick. I’m tired of flying with people coughing and blowing their nose in the cockpit. Do your fellow employees a favor and stay home when sick. I don’t want your sickness.

Last I spoke with anyone of importance(last week)...Midwest is paying the bills again and, I believe, is caught up on the back payments.

Not touching the rest of that post with a ten-foot pole.

Huh? I thought Skw Midwest CRJs were gone??
SkyWest still has twelve aircraft, including one spare, operating approximately 100 daily flights under the Midwest Connect banner.

The rest were taken out of MKE and repainted in generic, SkyWest house colors to be used as interchangeable spares in the UAX/DLC systems.

Facepalm...

For Great Justice...

I think what fool is trying to say..other bases are overstaffed. Apparently MKE isn't so in other bases where someone can drop a trip or get time off, he or she can not.
As for not flying when you are sick, that is common sense. Please stay home when you are sick. No matter which airline! Been lucky in 2009 and have not had to call in sick once. Don't remember flying with any sniffling coughing hacking pilots either..sick is sick, take some time off, you won't get terminated.

Me neither. Matter of fact I don't think any of us have called in sick yet. ;) :beer:

He'd still be fluffing if it wasn't for Viagra and the other drugs.
