They should have called the program #Over65Pilots
You are all drinking the Kool-Aide at NJ if you think the VLOA was invited by your Union leadership. It is nothing more than a maneuver by the company so AJ can pull government funds. #TicToc
Yeah, right. And you know this how? Your "buddy" who heard it from a "steward" who actually hasn't done union work for years?
But here's a question: Who cares? As someone who works within the union I know it came from our union. However, what does it matter? It's a good deal for those who don't want to put themselves at increased exposure to the virus.
I guess it kinda of hurts to watch a decent labor-management relationship in action after you terminated yours. 10 days pay with the rest deferred to some unnamed later date? Sounds great!! And you get to drive how far now to go to work? Awesome!! The markets are way down, which makes it a great time to be putting money into them. How's that 401K match going over there right now?
If I were you, I wouldn't spend too much time worrying about what's going on at Netjets. Our respective companies will deal with it all as best they can. We'll be able to do a company-to-company analysis when it's all over.
