Well if they furlough then I hope they have a plan for when guys will not pick up open time with guys on the street (I hope our guys are strong enough for that)...I hope our union puts forth something saying they do not want guys to pick up any open time with people on the street
I had a SW pilot ride my jumpseat and he mentioned that there is talk of SW mgnt. getting ready to ask for LOA this fall for up to 200 pilots. He added that their team walked out of contract talks, any word if this is true?
If you haven't noticed, if you are in the SWA pool...you are hosed.
BTW, for you guys that have to reinterview after the pool is flushed, PM and I'll give you the interview prep person that is almost 100% sure to get you in. All my buddies used her and they all got hired. I'm planning on using her.
There you go, working without the proper tools!indytest, my logic is that when capacity gets cut and jets get parked eventually the staffing needs to be in porportion to that.
An old AF friend of mine is very connected on both the union and mgt side. He's the one telling me this stuff. He made it sound like another big capacity cut in January.
Speaking of biting, are you still eating the mints from the urinals when you clean them?I never said anything about your TA. I have no idea how that changes the situation. Maybe the mgt wants to show you guys what happens when you bite the hand that feeds. But that's purely specualation of mine.
