what is so bad about the TA?

I can only hope that my brothers at JETBLUE can at some point get off their blue juice laden butts and even remotely begin to have the resolve that the SWA pilots have..
Yeah right! My guess is it will pass at 65 to 70%. just because 345 put down a "no" doesn't mean squat. Believe me, I think we need to vote it down, and vote it down big. But I still think it will pass.
No offense, but I cant help but laugh at that...trust me there is no real resolve among SWA pilots...just a vocal few. I am getter closer and closer to the realization that MOST pilots are either really apathetic or REALLY stupid (maybe both). Chances are, if you are here or another forum, you are not apathetic and thus cant relate, but we have lots of people who have not and will not EVER read the TA and others that will not even vote. I cant understand why ANYONE would not fight, kick, scratch, bite, and do everything in their power to keep what they have in this day in age in this industry, but I guess that is where the stupid comes into play. It will take a monumental effort to defeat this TA but it is totally doable...we will see. I cant imagine anyone who has read it thoroughly would vote yes...there are just SO many concessions with SO little in return.
You guys need someone like Lear70 to take care of this. When our crappy TA came out, he worked around the clock to put out a huge TA rebuttal that pointed out every concession and every loophole. The result was a failed TA (by a wide margin) that would have passed if it wasn't for his hard work. Someone should step up and do the work, and then you guys will be saved from making a big mistake.
