You know if someone wants to run his own Union he has been bought and paid for by you know who! He has been promised promotion like PD, why else does he have different levels of managers? Everyone is looking over their shoulder in case a "special manager" reports him. The general theme of Flexjet pilots is to "remain under the radar", we don't want to get fired. Is that the type of company that does not need a union? It is crying out to keep the union in place. Your CEO has a history that stinks of deceit and manipulation so what makes you think time is going to change him. I think if you really thought you had the votes you would have pushed for it months ago.
