Thanks

Holy cow... I haven't refreshed the screen for a day or so to see what's new, and I have 2 pages.

The amount of support I've received from emails to phone calls to monetary help for legal fund has been just incredible, and has been a real comfort during a very difficult time. Yes, my coworkers have stepped up in a MAJOR way, and all of you have my sincere thanks, and my pledge that I'm going to follow through on what I started.

We have 2 people on board right now, working on a 3rd to try to make it a Class Action if we are not reinstated at System Board. I don't know of the tax liabilities in setting up a "fund", although I've opened a separate bank account to keep track of everything should there be tax issues, etc.

If you don't have the money to help with both me and Sandra Davis (the unfortunate pilot with cancer), then please give what you have to her fund. Email for info at sjdavis3@aol.com

If you can do both, I certainly appreciate it, and WILL return it, either as back-pay at the successful conclusion of System Board or Arbitration, or with interest if it proceeds to a successful civil case.

I PM'd Albie and he said to go ahead and keep it like I'm doing it with a separate account and documentation, so:

Paypal to flyyou@aol.com

Richard Murphy
1416 Aaronwood Dr
Old Hickory, TN 37138

Again, PLEASE, if you can only do one, send it to Sandra.

Thanks SO much for the support... It's frustrating hitting dead end after dead end in job search when you tell them you've been recently terminated, and I find very few companies who will even LOOK at the evidence before saying "No, thank you", so I can't begin to tell you how important it's been to have the support of my peers.

Fly Safe, and God Bless,

Rich

I'm going to "assess" myself 2% of my monthly bring-home to support Lear70 and his family until this issue gets resolved.

Like it or not, his battle is all our own...

I will be happy to, and will be even happier to send anyone else who wants to make one payment and have me forward it on.

It would actually put a smile on my face for the company to keep receiving a check every week or so from me for Sandra's medical fund from whoever of you wants to contribute.

Two birds with one stone, beautiful! :)

Thanks to all... !

p.s. Goose, tried to send you back an email but it bounced back to me as "email address not known". Thanks for the help though!

Done.... don't want it back.... we get to help each other......
Wait... is that payoff for me not getting to debate you on here anymore?

If so, I'm afraid I can't accept... I mean,,, what fun would it be to not be able to debate the merits of ALPA? ;)

Seriously though, thank you.

Your management has to be fuming about all this. Really, really fuming.

It's really great to see guys from all over the industry helping out Lear. Glad to see that pilots can still stick together and look out for each other.

Knowing the kind of guy Lear70 is, there's no doubt he'd be the first one in line to donate to a fellow pilot in need.

Open up your wallets boys.

Thanks, everyone, including those who have sent money for Sandra and asked me to send it on, she sends her thanks as well!

3 1/2 hours to go... GET THE VOTE OUT! :)

p.s. Sandra's corrected email address is SJDavis3@aol.com, thanks to UALExpress for the correction.
