Anyone been told to take off their ALPA lanyards because they don't conform to uniform policy while sitting next to someone who is wearing a non ALPA lanyard that also is not uniform code but is not told to remove it?

ALPA won an injunction about this during the SkyWest drive. Let your OC know, they'll know what to do about it.

Those ALPA lanyards are real cool. It's the best way to let others know that you're an airline pilot. I wonder when ALPA is going to make lanyards with big font that say "Alpa done good fer me"

I hear they can make a pretty good noose as well for when the union runs your airline out of business.

And the award for dumbest post of the day goes to..........Flyerdan! Congrats. :rolleyes:

Unions don't run companies out of business. Incompetent managers do.

Your OPINION is pretty clear on the subject. I think both are pretty good at it.

Hey, here's your typical airline management MBA type. Union (ALPA) has not run any airline out of business, it was management's incompetence that has done so.

GoJet scum making fun of ALPA? I wonder if you were also laughing at ALPA when TSA started to layoff pilots, while your airline GoJets hired like crazy? Yeah, that's real funny.

I'll just refer you to Expressjet and leave it at that.

No, no, please explain it to me. I am an Xjet'er and, want to know how the union is causing the company to go bankrupt?


Did we sign the new CBA with CAL? or have any input into it?

Did we say no to the Skywest deal?

Please explain to me how it works.

Yea yea, another passionate waterskier who abandoned their buddies who's now going to tell others what to do. We all make peanuts and will continue to make peanuts unless pilots stop having the abused mentality. Keep wearing that ALPA lanyard though because it does look cool.

Yah, and his reasoning for abandoning TSA was probably because he was furloughed while YOU and YOUR alter-ego GoJets was hiring and expanding.

Here it is again:

YOU work for an ALTER-EGO carrier. A carrier started SPECIFICALLY for the reason to UNDER-MINE an existing ALPA carrier. There is a HUGE difference between this, and another regional taking another regionals flying. YOUR GoJets was formed specifically as an alter-ego, from the SAME holding company of TSA, and yet, backstabbing TSA pilots to "teach" them a lesson. Then YOUR carrier continued to grow and hire, NON-UNION, while TSA (the ALPA) carrier SUFFERED from loss of flying and from LAYOFFs. All as a result of TSA's upper management undermining UNION pilots and forming an alter-ego NON-UNION carrier. So YOUR actions have BACK-STABBED every ALPA carrier/pilot and what they stand for.

You're scum. True, you're not flying struck work, so you're technically not a scab. But you are the next worst thing above a scab. You will never be welcome in my jumpseat.
