They finished the last System Board meetings on the 18th or 19th. The arbitrator now has to go section by section until he has ruled on all the outstanding sections.
Looks like the idiot chamber is back up and running at full blast....thought perhaps he had died.
And the mouthpiece of the CGF/POS i.e. Warlord 19, is back in full glory as well.
Thanks for the kind words, minions. Actually, I've dropped about 12 pounds in the last 12 months, and plan to lose even more.
Doesn't sound like things are going real well for you guys, but there are some great opportunities in the marketplace now for those who chose to take advantage of them. Guess we'll see.
I've been just as critical of our union "leadership" as anyone and am far far removed from any power structure to the point other than paying dues, on the road you wouldn't know me from the next guy unless I chose to discuss it with you. As a result I probrably get more information than you do. And the fact regular pilots feel this way should worry your master.
I respect the extreme workload they've undertaken but I recognized from the get go it was a fool's errand to publically go up against this management team. I would say my number one complaint about our union "leadership" is that they weren't smart enough to recoginize this basic fact and were committing to what amounts to career suicide. Sure they have balls of steel and my respect for that but I've always recognized they weren't ever going to outwit or outplay the puppet master.
If Fishgold does his job, neither side will be happy. That will give leverage to the Section 6 negotiations.
