Thanks J.! I would have loved to go to Chicago but I'm stuck in DEN. Didn't think it would be wise to try to go DEN-ORD and back in one afternoon.

Whats the picketing all about? Is TSA in contract negotiations? Oh wait, don't tell me its about not getting to fly the 66 seaters for an extra couple bucks an hour.

We will be in negotiations in about 6 months. You think it's coinsidence that blowjets is starting now? Just in time for our negotiations?

Yes, it's a little bit about 66 seaters for a couple a bucks more. But your totally missing the point. It's about stopping an alter-ego scumbag operation from accelerating the race to the bottom. It's about standing up for what we believe should be rightfully ours, growth and upgrade oppotunities for pilots that have been patiently waiting and doing an outstanding, professional job for Trans States Holdings for a few years now. Instead of hiring guys off the street that have had no affiliation whatsoever to this company to come in and jump in front of us so our wait is that much longer. And yes, it is only a couple of bucks an hour more, which is why we, as a group, voted that schit down. But I don't expect you to really understand all this since you dig ditches and all. But if you we're a pilot in the regional airline industry you would probably understand and be happy for what we are doing here.

Management's first offer that involved merging the seniority lists was voted down, and all of a sudden they're done talking to us? They can't be bothered to sit down and have an actual negotiation with the employees that have built this company to where it is today? The battle isn't over yet, and that's why TSA pilots are still picketing.

I betting that a ditch digger still makes more than most regional Pilots and has a better quality of life.

Koop,

Your comment spells it out...better quality of life..Thats what this is all about everyone.... keeping some of the quality not just the life. This industry use to provide a great deal of both now its hard to find. If everyone sticks together no one gets left behind..it seems these days individual pilot groups have to fight their own fights while others poke fun at our disputes and how we justify them...really sad.

Solidarity,
Stinker

Just in case you were interested, if you go to Go-Jets, your career will be short and bitter.

That's all urban legend spread by the TSA MEC to scare people from GJ.

We've already had guys leave to Continental and a few other carriers. The HR department and management pilots simply don't care about GJ. Most mainline pilots could care less.

right its just the handful of members of the mec, not all 700 pilots at tsa that are aware of what the individual scum bags at g0jet are responsible for.

And who would be these g0jet individuals that went to cal? That would be the urban legend. And what other carriers? The reason they are leaving is the writing is on the wall, you guys are toast. That's why Dan (King Kong 2)spends so much time refuting his own identity on this message board. Must be lonely.

CAL and World Airways are the ones I know about.

You actually believe the crap your union tells you? Go talk to some airline recruiters and tell them you work for GJ. They don't care. The only people who care are the TSA pilots (rightfully so) and the clowns that run their union.

What crap is that, that dirtbags went to gj and now the company wants an extension of our contract to regain flying that was already ours? There is a price on your head, and you feel betrayed by the company because they never really wanted you. What is the my union lying to me about? I would love to hear more.

As for your career potential, we will just wait and see. I can't see you lasting long at TSH, not when you are surrounded by 700 of your good "friends".

So who went to CAL? You guys are jumping ship just like rats and I doubt you are going to CAL.

You've got the list. Ask someone over there in Continental's groundschool right now.

Fool Flow,


Explain to me, exactly, your position in this issue. Are you a TSA pilot? Are you a *************************t pilot? Did you blow your interview and are just venting, trying to rationalize your ineptitude? Are you a flight attendant? Do you actually KNOW a single member of our pilot leadership? I know them all. Clowns? You are delusional. No seriously, you are missing something. Fill me in. Enlighten us.
