UAL wants to screw with the jumpseat in the new travel agreement,

Our (SkyWest) SAPA president sent us an update today that says that in the new travel agreement with UAL, they (UAL) would like to limit the jumpseat in a way that would only allow for one jumpseater to ride free, and only if the cabin were totally full, in other words if you are jumpseating and there is a seat in the cabin that is available, you will have to take that seat and pay as if you were a non-rev, AND even worse if you decline to pay the new annual fee to UAL you will be left behind completely.

Also they want to cut off jumpseating to offline carriers completely and only let them ride if they buy an ID90, which is a huge foul against all of our reciprocal agreements with many other airlines, which they will most certainly terminate our jumpseat agreements for,

UAL is trying to make a nickel any way they can,

UAL SUCKS!

Once all the UA pilots start missing their show times because their Jumpseat agreements aren't honored, they might reconsider...
Then he can blame the pilots for putting UAUA in bancrupcy #2.

DL is already pulling something similar with us at Pinnacle... We have an international JS agreement with mainline, but DL deducts international flights out of our travelnet allowace (one overseas trip a year). After the first trip we must use a zed ticket. All the other DCI and mainline pilots better realize this is just the beginning, the more you let them get away with, the sooner it will affect you too.

Everytime i do a IAD flight i have 5 UA jumpseaters asking for a lift.
Hate to tell them that they will have to buy an ID90.

When does it stop ?????

:angryfire
It won't. Even if all the guys who are fed up with this crap and they can't staff flights, they'll still keep making it worse.
They won't be happy until they've taken everything away from the pilot group, and have pilots who are more than happy to have that job. They want the happy-go-lucky pilot who just thinks it's neeto to fly the big airliner!
Sadly enough, they will find them.

Strike votes are usually AFTER an arbitrator is involved so it is wayy to early in the game for that. But I understand the meaning behind the comment.

This kind of stuff is RLA Negotiations 101 from the MGT side so far. Stay tuned for more of this kind of stuff in the future. It is designed for general ill will against UAL pilots and from some of the posts in the thread - worked perfectly.

I was thinking the exact same thing. As soon as we all start leaving UA pilots behind at the gate this rule will change real quick I guarantee it. Tell your friends and spread the word!

This BS has to stop at some point, I'm so F***ing sick of hearing crooked news coming down from every single managment type. You know, I would hope if I were a UAL pilot I'd hope that I'd step up to the F***ING plate and do something about this (what, I wish I knew).

I won't be having any UAL jumpseaters if this happens. When you don't get on, then UAL can feel the wrath of the rest of the industry. As a fellow commuter, this is just plain disgusting.

Didnt the UAL drivers eventually come to the aid of UAX during the jumpseat war from last spring, I believe?

I do believe that yes, some jackass in UAL management got his roxx off thinking this one up, but until its a FOM revision and a UAL POSBD on their releases, lets see what UAL ALPA has to say about it.

And no, I have no doggie in this war...

Would that be the Blue Oyster Club?

As for UAL pilots grabbing their BAL$$, I don't see it happening. Especially with ALPA on the property, they will never strike. No one will ever strike again while ALPA is still on property.

ALPO couldn't whip it's way out of a wet paper sack.

What do you mean they won't do anything!? I'm sure the UAL guy who is spending his free time infront of Congress, trying to ban passengers from bringing batteries on airliners will be more than happy to fight for the JS!
Or maybe not:D

Sounds like August needs to be national "Fly Safe" month.
