Was hoping something would happen to prevent this. Good luck to those furloughed. I am not assigned a base as of the last standing bid so may be joining you all soon.

Good luck guys. I hope you all have a better Continental to come back to when they begin recalls. And if it's not a better airline I hope that you are in a financial position to give them a big "%^&$ OFF".

We have some really good people running for office due for a vote on Sept 29th. If we get them in, it's off to a great start. Good luck to those getting furloughed!! I doubt it'll last more than next spring. We'll have a far better contract when you get back.

no merger going to happen

I would love to believe that, but I am not so sure.

Pare down the numbers, get "pre-approval" via enhanced code share agreement. Then to get the big dogs paid, pull the trigger on the new YoCal.

Again, I hope like hell that is not the case.

Thats why I'm glad that my MEC finally did one thing right and threw the JV LOA back at the company.

D&R are gone as far as I'm concerned.

1 of 27 on the bubble now.
My thoughs are on my fellow pilots who hit the street today. You will not be forgotten by me~

Sounds like the C*cKSu(K&r$ at US Air who were flying 95-100 hours while I was furloughed.

Unbelievable

As I remember USAir (east) MEC also voted, in secret of course, to allow the 767 guys to fly over the contractual max while guys were on furlough. Their reasoning (from my former FO rep) " the company is pretty short on the 767....."

No sh!te the company is short. They just furloughed 1100 pilots.

Actually I had no ill will against ALPA. It was my reps that WE elected and WE left in office that voted to screw us. ALPA national had nothing to do with it.

That is the problem with USAPA and the east folks. They blame ALPA for the actions of their reps.

Now I do have ill will towards alpa for injecting politics into the USAir/AWA seniority integration. For those actions yes, ALPA and Prater SUCK.

If we merge with UAL, I'll resign. No point in sticking around. Pretty sure most of the junior folks will walk away from the abortion called UAL.

No you won't. However, it would make me VERY interested in finding another job. Quitting before I had another would not be a good idea though.

Furloughs date back to November 2007. In related news, the company is offering Voluntary Junior Manning (VJM). This is only 3 days after furloughing 148 pilots. If you are flying with one of these VJM WH0RES, educate them as much as possible. If you are unable to assist them in reevaluating their choices....you know what to do.

Been trying to "ween" myself of FI so I'm a little out of the loop, but how serious is this merger talk with UA?
