FW got his G650 position as the second most senior Flexjet pilot who applied JF was the first and declined wishing to remain in his current position. The slots were filled according to the union rules of a 50/50 split between Flex and Options pilots. Check the facts and stop trying to concoct conspiracy theories.
My bet is that there is a percentage of pilots who support the union, but who also signed the card as a safety play. They want to be in the good graces of management, maybe get a Red Label ILC spot, just in case it all goes south. I guess we'll see soon enough if they have the numbers to get a vote.
There is most definitely a percentage of pilots who signed a card thinking they were voting for an in-house union lead by FW. Which is most definitely not the case. You're signing that card expressing interest in NO union.
