URGENT: Excellent NEWS from the Atlas MEC and ALPA National tonight!!!

All Atlas crewmembers please listen to tonights ATLAS VARS message. Your MEC and ALPA National has given you instruction to no longer cross any picket lines in ANC or MIA. This is great news indeed, to see that ALPA National is now fully behind you!

Congratulations on your unity with Polar. This will only make Atlas a stronger, more united company in the future.

This could be historic!

If any of you need the Atlas VARS # please PM me.

I may be a relative newbie pilot, but I'm not a newbie in the business world. And from a business stand point I was kind of wondering what your union was going to do. It was clear to anyone reading here over the past five years that APLA no longer intimidated management because they have ... how to say this ... let's just say they have been 'picking their battles' recently.

In that light, this is a good move, image-wise, for ALPA.

However, ALPA didn't push ASA to honor Comair's lines and a somewhat similar situation at NWA currently will leave thousands of mechanics (and eventually FAs) unemployed. So I can understand why some Atlas pilots may not like jumping on the handgrenade now.

Wish you guys all the best, at both places. Most of you have families to feed, clothe, and shelter. And more pilots on the street makes it harder for us newbies to stay employed in corporate. We can't compete.

You're right, but these guys aren't just "talking." They're walking the walk. They've decided to go all the way on this one, and I think it will pay off in the end. The Polar and Atlas crews deserve everyone's respect for the fight they are waging right now.

Does anyone else find it odd what a rabid unionist PCL_128 has become now that he's no longer paying for a pilot's seat at Gulfstream?

No?

Odd, yes?. :(

Minhberg...

It's o.k. 'cause he realizes the errs of his ways.

...or something like that is the line he feeds us. :rolleyes:

But I believe the technical term for it is: FYIGM.
