I just got a turkey gift certificate from USAPA with the value of $10. I will be working over the holidays. You probably should have saved the money to help the families of furloughed pilots during their time of need.

No thanks, you can stuff your coupons.

buy the turkey, let it sit in a box in your garage for a week or so, mail it to their offices to send a nice hello

Honest, this is EXACTLY the type of comments that 18 West pilots made on a West pilot's forum board and all are still fighting RICO lawsuits with USAPA. So congratulations, Raoul...you can add racketeering to your list of skills.

Or better yet, pool your $10 certificates, buy a big turkey and go find a furloughed guy to give it to. If you gathered $50 together, that would feed a furloughed guy and his family for a week. At least then you're doing something useful with the $10.

Just a thought....

The coupon is going to a family in need. Turkey, frivolous lawsuits and Hail Mary appeals. How is the work on an industry leading contract going?

Wow, that could be worse than the Pizza Hut coupons ATA sent out to its employees a few years ago.

Donate it to the Amerijet pilot that USAPA slandered by accusing him of being a sc-b (and published a copy of his ID photo).

The BPR should have received certificates for crow.

When the company hands out a certificate, it's generousity.

When your union uses YOUR money to give you something you don't need it's called, well, it's so stupid I don't think a word has been crafted yet that quite fits. Foolishly irresponsible will have to do.

It's like borrowing $20 from your mom to buy a Mother's Day present, just so you can hear her say how much she loves you.

Exactly, if they wanted to impress everyone, they should write Sheham's law firm a letter requesting a $400K reduction on the legal bills so that the money could be distributed to furloughees. If I am spending $2M on attorneys, I am entitled to a 25% discount. Unfortunately we all know they will never make a request like this. . .

Even if they asked, there's no way those scumbags would cough up a dime (or even a penny) for a furloughed guy. I warned everyone I flew with a year and a half ago that these were the among the worst lawyers I've ever dealt with (from personal experience with the Peterson part of the group). But I was repeatedly told (by the guys I was flying with) to relax, that these guys "know what they're doing."

On the bright side, look how easy they (Seeham and crew) made your DFR suit. After reading the transcripts, it was like taking candy from a baby...
