One contract also means single list. If one side (or the other) is to be downsized, the pilots on the other half will potentially be slaughtered on seniority.
Have you really looked into the SKYW work rules? You would be taking a major cut overall. And the one list with them. Look at how PNCL, Mesaba & Colgan list was handled. I think you would come up on the very short end of the stick on that one.No, I've said I'd be willing to take Skywest book and their crappy PBS if it meant one list. This sentiment is not just mine. It's the reason management said shortly after the two MECs voted to send out the TA to vote that they are willing to give us Skywest book but not one list. They didn't just bring that up out of the blue.
Bye bye Nevets!!

So tired of this place. ASA was a good company back in the day. Now with our current state (LXJT pulling morale and revenue down), anyone with any foresight is actively working to get out of here as soon as possible - as they should. The downward slope is getting steeper...
Do not mistake the 83% as a vote as one group but as a rejection of what the Company wanted from each group individually.
I was part of that 83% and I don't agree with you. We've had it and want a divorce.
the reason I voted no is not because I agree with nevets. Its because all we heard was that there were going to very few, if any concessions and most would come from LXJT. Then that turd TA was riddled with concessions for Lasa while simultaneously subsidizing Lxjt. I am all for separate contracts. bring on the whipsaw. I am fine with that going forward.
and as far as our union and management goes. Please do not tell me anymore that DL/UA etc want to get rid of 50's while I watch them fly to the desert, only to return 3 weeks later to ATL with the Blue and white generic skywest on the tail right next to the 8XXAS tail number.
One list without you or suckitExactly, no one wants concessions and 83% agree with me!
Don't you work for Skywest? I must have hit a nerve with you at some point.
Well then you would be wrong. The pilots are not responsible for the money losing CPAs that management negotiated. But you guys rather divorce yourselves from the pilots with the better contract and keep the management that created the problem.
Bring in the whipsaw and then you lament the whipsaw by bringing back your old aircraft that are now operated by non-union pilots with lower average compensation than you? You contradict yourself. Not to mention that you would vote for a concession for 2/3 of the pilots and lower the bar for the rest of the industry.
One List or NOTHING!
