Hopefully management got the clue. This will be an interesting year to see how much the committees can do to solve some of the most pressing issues here. Failure to do so will result in another election and with most likely a different result. I think the election process has brought out the "bad" in many and I'm looking forward to healing the wounds and moving ahead.

At 33% they got a clue alright.

They got a clue that you can do so much more than cleaning planes. Like paying for your own insurance.

Unbelievable.

Today?
Yeah, we really sent them the message this time. It's just that they didn't get the message you think they did.
Unfortunately, you hit the nail right on the head...

Well, you got what you wanted. Explain again how you're now better off not having a say in your future?

Do they really treat you that good at JetBlue that you don't need any representation?

Kind of like letting the rest of the camel come in to the tent. Time to walk softly and carry a big stick.

Huh?
Well, hopefully BB will be front and center at the townhalls asking the tough questions when no changes occur.

Perhaps he will be, but I for one, doubt it!

No! Are we treated fairly well, yes. Does that make up for abysmal pay and medical benefits? Well, when my son's upcoming surgery runs me about 3K out of pocket vs the 300 dollars it would have at Chautauqua, I'll try paying the hospital with our "culture". Or maybe some blue chips.

Reaffirming your mission of industry spoiler.
You should be proud.

Actually addressing all the "issues" in the next year will not make or break another vote. The crystal ball sees only tough times ahead for the next few years, and with a little luck B6 will benefit more than others in the years to come.....but not in the short-term.

Sorry to hear about your son's surgery. It's not easy with a high deductible, but hopefully you guys have an HSA and you can write $1000 off your taxes.

Good things happen to those that are patient. In five years B6 could be in a most enviable position, if mgt continues their present success.

:pimp:

For the 600-700ish pilots who voted for the union, keep the pressure on! For the guys who did not vote vowing to give management one more year, keep the pressure on! For the guys who do not want a union.......stop making this such an embarrasing place to work and keep the pressure on!!!! I will not sit back and let this be a defining moment.

Perhaps B6 should have a flow-through with OO. Kindred spirits and all.
