Maybe I've missed it, but I've seen nothing concrete telling me that there is now a Roth 401k at ASA. I read the letter that said that we might get that option, but nothing solid.
Has that been officially announced anywhere?
Unless ALPA gives them up for something the senior guys want.
What is something that the "senior" guys want? And who are these "senior" guys?
From reading the letter, anybody 350 from the bottom and up could be construed as "senior". Senior enough to avoid the numbers the union is speaking about.
The only thing I have heard grumblings about are internet access in VPS!?!?!?! I hope we wouldn't sell anybody out for $5 internet.
I know HK is wishing for no cockroaches in CRW, but I think that may be an isolated event. Moot point, as HK wouldn't go for that anyway.
I'm personally in favor of a paycut to keep everyone on the property. There are other things as well, I think could help reduce costs. I feel as a group we need to explore everything we can to keep everyone on the property--"protected" or not. Let's look out for our own, nobody else will. And this is coming from a "senior pilot." So GFY if you're one of those that are trying to create dissention in the Senior vs. Junior category.
They won't tell us a date because ALPA doesn't know, and CT knows but won't tell because he doesn't want people jumping ship to all those airlines that are hiring prior to the holiday rush being over.
