Bluepilots is down again. Wasn't today the last day to submit your papers to join the contract dispute? Weren't the link to the law firm's website and the necessary forms to submit listed on bluepilots.com? Wow, what a lucky coincidence for the company, huh? Wasn't the last time the site went down just a day or two before the union vote?

(Dripping with sarcasm for those of you that don't think the company controls that site)

I have always thought that site is suspect. This just further adds to the belief that the company or F&H own and manage the site. Big surprise!

I called and talked to Robert at LLBL and he said the 22nd deadline was a bad rumor. They are still taking signed consent forms. I think you still have time even after the 22nd if you want to join.

Anybody have a link to the website?? The company's suppression of information is a clearer indication of how they operate than any of the platitudes. This was true during the union vote, and it is true now.
If the PVC represented pilots, they would have the link on their website.

Everyone needs to go to the JBPA site. www.jetbluepilots.org

I know there is not much action there but we need to stop relying on the bluepilots site and get the JBPA one going.

Somehow, a site that requires you to identify yourself hasn't worked, yet.

I called yesterday and was told they are still taking retainers, so there you go.

Game on

Dear Client-Pilots:

We have quickly crossed over the 110 client mark today and received our highest level of retainers to date - 18 in one day. It is our belief that now that the PEA Amendment deadline has passed (and as a result of the bluepilots website being down and folks being driven to our site) our rate of receipt of retainers will continue to increase.

The Client Subweb extranet has been set-up, it contains the legal analysis memo and it is accessible from the home page of the original LLBL Jet Blue Pilots Section 3A Claims Extranet - see diagram below. You do, however, need to request the password from Don Hom at dhom@lockelord.com, and by doing so you acknowledge and agree to the following:

(1) YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT DISTRIBUTE THE PILOT-CLIENT SITE PASSWORD TO ANYONE; and

(2) YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT DISTRIBUTE OR COMMUNICATE ANY OF THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE PILOT-CLIENT SITE TO ANY NON-LLBL PILOT-CLIENTS.

Sorry for these extra protective measures but they are necessary to help us protect the confidentiality of the information that we will be disseminating on the Client Subweb and also the information that you provide us that is subject to the Attorney-Client Privilege and Attorney Work-Product Privilege.

If you agree to the above requirements, please email a response to dhom@lockelord.com, and he will send you the password to access the site (starting tomorrow morning). Thanks.


You can access the Client Subweb via the link on the Quick Launch bar

United Airlines furloughs 290 pilots

United Airlines furloughs 290 pilots, part of previously announced plans to cut work force
  • On Tuesday September 22, 2009, 3:41 pm EDT
CHICAGO (AP) -- United Airlines has furloughed another 290 pilots, part of previously announced plans to shrink its work force.
United has said it aims to shrink its work force by 7,000. It has been making periodic furloughs and, in some cases, layoffs to move toward that goal.



The new furloughs bring the total number of United pilots out of work to 1,164, according to the United branch of the Air Line Pilots Association.
In a hot line message, union spokesman and pilot Joe Doniach blamed the furloughs on "United management's inability to properly run an airline." He said the union would be working to restore all the furloughed pilots to United cockpits.

The union said it has about 6,400 remaining active pilots at United.
Like other carriers, United has been reducing the amount of flying it does to try to match less demand. United traffic and capacity have both fallen 9.2 percent this year through August compared with the same period last year.

On Tuesday, the Transportation Department reported that employment at the big airlines fell 7.1 percent in July compared with the previous year.
Among those carriers, the biggest drop was at Northwest, where employment fell 12.5 percent, as its new owner Delta Air Lines Inc. integrated it. United's work force shrank 11 percent according to the government's calculations, while American's work force shrank 6.9 percent. Alaska Airlines shrank 6 percent. Delta and US Airways Group Inc. were both down 4.4 percent and Continental shrank 4 percent.
Shares of United parent UAL Corp. fell 36 cents, or 3.8 percent, to $9.04 in afternoon trading.

Interesting theory.

The more JetBlue pilots sign the retainer the more UAL furloughs UAL pilots.

Blue Bayou,

I remember you never answered my question on an earlier thread. Are you or have you ever been a member of the Band of Blue?

Seriously Blew by you, what has that got to do with absolutely anything? Should we all ignore our contracts and quiver in fear that the airline that doesn't furlough might furlough? Should we capitulate before any discussion has even begun so that the ones that say a no-furlough clause "has value" can refrain from engaging their vaunted values? Shall we all succumb to revised intent, except for the part where we all intended to improve our lives, our livelihoods, and our careers? Perhaps you need to revisit from whence you came, and see what Sally or Howard would say.
