Is there something in your contract that allows your union to ban open time pick up if anyone is on furlough?

Yes, we can call for a JA/OT ban when a furlough is announced. By putting it in the contract, it now becomes a contractual issue, and not a legal issue.

What's the ramifications if a pilot picks up open time? Or is it just not available per the contract?

Open time would be available for pickup, but that particular SCUM would be subject to public floggings with IPA lanyards........

It's funny how some pilots have to be told by others that they shouldn't be accepting overtime and/or open time while fellow pilots are furloughed.

This is especially true at UPS, where pilots are well paid. It's not like they need the money.:rolleyes:

That's easy for you to say since you are not accustomed to living our lifestyle. I need more money. Heck, I made over $200,000 last year as an F/O and I still don't have enough money to get all the toys that I'd like to buy.

AAAAHHHH BTTB....

You had me for a millisecond.... kudos for the great sarcasm. I did run into an idiot the other day at work and he was bitching about not being able to pick up opentime. By the time I was done "educating" him, well....... lets just say the dumb m*&her f&^ker won't be so out spoken about being a back stabber. And his captain sat there with a nice smile on his face and didn't say a word. We have our fair share of idiots here, but it's in the contract should they announce furloughing ONE guy come June 1st. This will get interesting indeed.....
