Sweet.............even if the worst happens, I can live with myself knowing I made the right decision along with 75% of my fellow pilots here. We are not asking for anything out of reach, just industry AVERAGE stuff, and flying that should be ours any way you look at it. That offer was way below average and at least we began applying gentle pressure on the brake pedal to stop the race to the bottom.

If we voted "YES" we'd definately be wrong. Maybe we have a chance to make things right, time will tell. Stay tuned.

You know what. I honestly don't care anymore. It's like having a girlfriend you fight with all the time. I'm just ready to break up and get on with my life. I say we do what we do here at TSA and let Gayjets do whatever. We stood up for what is right and that's really all that matters.

If this company goes under, and I feel very confident that it will not, or if we shrink so much that I end up on the street, I will apply at Eagle or Expressjet or Skywest or Chautauqua or Flexjet or...you get the picture.

And when it comes time for contract negotiations at my new company and we are trying to get industry average, I'll know that while I was at TSA we kept that average a little higher by not settling for a WAY BELOW average offer.

I really do feel good about this and I honestly am ready to just move forward and not look back.

Waterski(ers)-

Nice job. I do believe that you did the right thing. Like an earlier poster said, at least you'll know that you "applied the brakes" on the way to the bottom.

My sincere respect.

Twenty five percent voted in favor. That is one in four voters. One in four pilots you fly with do not stand with us. The vote should have been 100%! Here we have failed to send HK the message we needed to send. Let us improve on our success. We must all stand together if we ever expect to make improvement.

Congrats guys. Im not surprised with all of the crazy sheite going down lately that there is a divided pilot group. Just be thankful that the good outweighed the evil this time.

On the other subject, I talked with a UAL ramper up at B22 in ORD the other day saying that there was a gogo-Jet arrival due in at 11:00am. Said there was a bunch o feds on it...

I personally know several indviduals who voted yes, don't disparage them, they are honorable people for the most part. I can respect an honest difference of opinion. The dishonorable scumbags are already working for GayJets. 75% is a rather decisive margin and sends the appropriate messge. Let's hope they listen.

If the company doesn't talk anymore, and the clock runs out and g-jet does a revenue trip....let the whipsawing begin! Will you care then?

Like I said, I hope you are right!

I would have to work at all 5 companies at the same time to feed my family on first year pay.


BAT31, your post was just plain ignorant.

TJSATTER, I wish there were more like you at TSA.

Like I said, I hope that 3 out of 4 pilots here are right.

I fully expect Gayjets to start revenue flights very soon. Like I said, I can live with the decision I made. I do not expect the company to come back with another offer. I don't care.

I've worked at TSA for almost 2 years now. Our first yr pay is about average. Our second year pay is by far the worst in the industry. Even below Mesa. If I have made it this far working at one job, I imagine I can keep on making it if I have to go to another regional.

So what happens next? Does Go-Jet finally get certified as a teamsters union. I guess that means Trans States stays with just their 50 seat aircraft represented by ALPA. Congratulations on that...i guess, and good luck!

NO. What happens now is the company comes crawling back and makes a better offer, because they know they have to, or possibly face a whole can of worms. How many jets you think United will hand down to Uncle Hulie while he is negotiating with three unions at the same time??? This guy is smart, he knows what he needs to do.
