So who were the 27 clowns who voted for Teamsters at Colgan instead of ALPA? 27 morons who'd rather be represented by a bunch of ass-crack showin' truck drivers. Gimme a break.

Well they might be better then ALPA for the regionals. I mean we are kinda close to be like bus drivers. :)

Anyway Kudos for Colgan voting in a union. Now lets get those Q400 payrates up to par.

Congrats, and welcome to the home of the 1200.00 a year magazine. :)

They were part of the 313 who voted with you for representation that you will now have at Colgan. You may want to thank them and see how you can work together rather than bash them.

My ass cracking dads in the teamsters and he’s a truck driver for Kraft Foods. He’s put me through college and paid for all my flight training. I can also guarantee you that he makes more then you and lives a much more stable and happy life. He’s also home every night and has celebrated every holiday with my brothers and I since our existence. He’s seen all hiss kids birthdays, Christmas’s, first days of school, etc. A lot more then a regional airline pilot making 30,000 a year including myself can say.

Dude...it's FlightInfo. What the average member doesn't know could fill a book! (Myself...and a few good friends excluded, of course:D )

Good for your Dad:beer:

Take a look at the RAH contract, IBT. You are what you make of it.
Take a look at the 1500 open grievances at Republic. Didn't Republic upgrade pilots out of seniority? What did the IBT do about it? They made the company promise to not do it again. The company never did pay for that. The IBT is worthless. I've been represented by both, and IMHO, ALPA is better. ALPA sucks too, don't get me wrong, but it is better than the IBT

I spot on agree with you 110% I've been represented by both and it's night and day!

Yes, take a look at it. The work rules suck compared to recent ALPA regional agreements.

You just can't admit that another carrier has a decent agreement without the aide of ALPA, can you?

A broken clock is shows the correct time twice a day. What is your point? Non union, or non ALPA companies do occaissionally have a good contract. It most often has to do with better management with a more realistic approach to compensation. That is exactly what Colgan DOES NOT HAVE. Thus the requirement of a union.

Now go suck off your CEO.

Reading Comprehension isn't your strong point, is it? The fact that you're associating non-Union with non-ALPA means you've had more than your fair share of the ALPA Kool-Aide. Now get out of line, and let someone else have a cup!:rolleyes:

Horizon, UPS, NetJets, SWA, and APA are four examples of great contracts not negotiated by ALPA.

You are correct in saying a labor-friendly management goes a long way.
