With all these major paycuts coming or already here any chance ALPA could help us out by lowering the dues a bit??? Maybe go to 1.00 or 1.50 percent vs. 2.00???? for some captains it could save around 150-300 dollars a month and FO 25-100 bucks a month??? It would be nice if we could have lower dues at least while our airline is in bankruptcy. Any chance this could happen??With all the paycuts we HAVE to take, we HAVE to find ways to help supplement our income. The airlines say they are bankrupt and they go to the most extreme to take as much as they can, take and take to survive so they say. Well I feel that if they are bankrupt then I must live and act like I am bankrupt saving money in anyway possible, since they are taking money away. I see alot less of tipping van drivers coming in the near future, no more biggie size meals and using more coupons.
