Because people won't post that stuff on the Alpa board and have to sign their name to it. Easy to be a tough critic over here.
I would like to know what happened.. Pete has been doing that job for a long time, and he has always been helpful to me. I am sure that position is very tough, and often thankless.
We will have to find a really dedicated person to fill those shoes.
-Thanks for all your service, Pete!
I agree. PD was a total a-hole to many people and he was definitely not on our side. Have you ever seen (or heard) his explanation of "Red Arrow Days?"
-How come we had these "red arrow days" in the first place?
-How come we had 5 day trips?
-How come we had some months in which the top ten in seniority (and everyone else) was flying endless 4-day trips?
The answer for all these issues(and many more) is that PD is a total company shill-he always has been. He personally approved (through contractual obligations) 5-day trips, and many aspects of these crappy schedules.
The man is a menace, and things should improve no matter who else does his job.
(I just hope his involvement in PBS doesn't screw us all as much as everything else he has had a hand in!)
-Good bye, good riddance, and don't let the porch door hit you in the ass, you toobag!
-My faith in the MEC has now been restored! This is long, long overdue!
