Another sign of desperation! The card drive is turning out to be another failure. FW claims the response has been good, but if that were true, they would have had an announcement by now. Now assume we loose Union representation, what do you think would happen? Not get another raise for 10 years? Just ask the people in the office.
Not so sure about that. My understanding is the Teamster drive stayed just a hair under the threshold for months. Do not underestimate these guys. If it's true some of the rumoured tactics are a reality then I certainly wouldn't.
However, the length of time it's taking does not look good for their actual chances of winning a vote. I know for a fact a good percentage of cards were sent in under false pretenses and misunderstanding. They were conned into believing this was a simple representation vote. Choice A or Choice B. They had no idea we could actually lose all representation. You point that out to these guys and they start asking how to get their card back. I've had that conversation at least a dozen times.
Phil better be careful about all the "laws" he's so happy to point out. Because I'll tell you what: I'm willing to personally sue them into bankruptcy if their ruse ****s up my career. There's a difference between unfortunate and unavoidable fairness that causes a pilot to "lose" (like arbritrated contract issues) and culpable fraud.
