Another positive step for a group of pilots that have been waiting for a long, long time. Fly The Pledge, my brothers!

Eventually, NJA will not have a need for pilots. THEN what?

(And don't give me the BS about the "scabs" at the 135 companies where your trips will be sold to.)

What, the planes will be flown by computers, the company will fold, what are you talking about? I think as long as NJA has aircraft, they will want pilots to fly them, unless they decide to mount them on display stands outside FBOs and on the lawns of rich folks. Why do you think NJA will not need pilots?

Just went through Company Recurrent.....senior VP's admitted the problem is in CMH....not the line pilots. The pilots' approval is still the highest in all the company. 52% turn over in Customer Service....Thanks Goodness we don't run our cockpits thew way they run the Casino and Easton.


And....NO this wasn't a miss quote.

DO-82,

They have been saying that for years; "It's all here in Columbus....you guys are great....."

The problem is that they STILL haven't fixed anything.

I agree LR....everytime you ask them the answer is ....."Ah, but we're working on that....we have a plan" I jokingly asked if management is familiar with Unusual Attitude Recovery......because right now the nose is UP, the power is at IDLE and the speed is bleeding off rapidly.

I'll third that. The last two Comp recurrents, the management line has been, "we know we have problems here (CMH) and we're trying to fix it".

It is just a tactic to unarm and deflect. At least now they're getting blank stares.

So strike already. Then we can get on with the business of accepting the pilots who cross the line, as well as the flood of new hires, thus clearing out the deadwood union whiners. Please, do us all a favor and strike. Godalmighty!

Exactly.

On a serious question, WHEN do you (Netjets pilots) expect ask to be released from mediation and begin your 30 day cooling-off period?

Can we speculate intellegently without resorting to verbal violence and play that scenario out? Honestly looking for thoughtfull debate here not flames.


After a lengthy recess the NMB releases the IBT 1108 and the Company to "self help" The Union calls for a vote to ACTUALLY strike.
The vote passes by 80% plus or minus 10% (serious business walking off your job, so the numbers could be a surprise to either/both sides)
The Pilots begin the strike 30 days after release.
The company responds with a lockout. EJM and NJI go to 125% mode, ALL management pilots start flying every day. Massive Sell Offs, Massive Hiring of "replacement pilots" Perhaps 0%, perhaps 30% cross the line,(please don't try to resurrect that dead horse, scab list) the pressure is building every week.
After an unknown length of time(perhaps months and months) a compromise agreement is reached........OR NOT.....

What's this WE sh*t. I thought you worked for a different company or is it whatever suits the moment?

That's great!

Just run your own company right out of business!

Just an honest question here. Can NJA start another company which doesn't have union representation and transfer the aircraft and owners over to the new company?

Not without violating Scope clause ...

Who are they going to get to fly the planes? Thats a lot of type ratings to produce.

Probably easier to get released and fire all the pilots. Then hire scabs and whatever number of line crossers they hope for.
