Airtran MGT gave letters of suspension to the MEC for allowing the pilots to where there brass during info picketing. I am not suprised though. Something else that I wont forget. Why would anyone want to come here.......?
I find it hard to believe that sitting MEC officers would actually encourage a violation of the FOM. I call BS on that one.
Deal Reached to Clear F/O ####, ALPA I.D. Clips
Furthermore, the Union will soon distribute ALPA branded retractable I.D. clips. Management consented to this compromise measure, which allows our pilots to display their unity while addressing the company’s stated concerns regarding the safety of the Association’s lanyards.
What the heck are managements stated concerns regarding the safety of the Association's lanyards? I've been getting by without hanging myself for quite a while.
Yes, sort of.I'd like to know who's calling all the shots for these "tactical" misteps from mgmt?? Have they cleared it all the way up to Joe?
Yes, sort of.
Joe doesn't work here anymore. He retired as president and CEO in November, 2007, but remained as Chairman of the Board until November, 2008.
Bob Fornaro runs the show now and yes, he's aware of everything going on.
I wouldn't necessarily call it "missteps", either. They have a tactical purpose for doing this, don't doubt it. We simply don't know their game plan... yet...
It's chess, not checkers.
