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.
Dude...it's FlightInfo. What the average member doesn't know could fill a book! (Myself...and a few good friends excluded, of course )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.
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
You just can't admit that another carrier has a decent agreement without the aide of ALPA, can you?
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!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.
