Meh. He’s just trying to change the subject from what his managers did. Look over there, a squirrel!

Exactly! And 2N is showing his at will management style by posting a treatening letter based on false alegations. To think he expects us to trust him and his management team is just insane

WOW is right!! I find it very hard to believe that 2 nn thinks so little of this pilot groups intelligence or our union leadership that they would stoop so low as to resort to childish below the belt type tactics, if leadership hasn’t done it yet why would they start now? It is truly pathetic and shows signs of sheer desperation on the part of managment, I believe a professional PI should be hired and an additional $10,000 reward offered by the Union.

That's a great idea. Offer to double the reward and participate in the investigation. Take samples for finger prints and saliva if it's an old fashioned envelope. Compare those to management, the Union busters and employees. We all know the last group had nothing to do with it. Who wants to bet we would be rebuffed immediately?!

10k, really? Seems kind of low ball for the alleged atrocities imposed upon those poor and upstanding 7 “Posers” and their traumatized families.

I guess Notre Dame band members and alumni rate higher on the Ricci worth scale than his own “Family” members. That fact that he will never have to pay it makes it even more of an insult and hollow gesture. The culprit will never be exposed. My suggestion to the “Proper Authorities” would be to start with Russ Brown and the entire “Decert Bunch”.

It is a fact that IBT Local 1108 leadership had absolutely nothing to do with whatever Mr. Ricci has accused, convicted and sentenced them of doing. They haven’t even seen the alleged “Pornography”.

por·nog·ra·phy
pôr?nä?r?f?/
noun
1. printed or visual material containing the explicit description or display of sexual organs or activity, intended to stimulate erotic rather than aesthetic or emotional feelings.
synonyms:erotica, pornographic material, dirty books;

Total B/S and a clear sign the Living Legend is desperate and perhaps even a little unstable. He knows he’s going to lose this vote and will have to continue his never-ending campaign to destroy the “Little Local That Could”.

Lumpsum,
So, is that how you get paid if you and your despicable hired hands actually bust the union? It isn't a name any pilot would ever choose.

What I’d like is for you to respond to me when I call you out. Since our conversation was moved to the Hangar by the Mod, I’ll ask you again here:

I’m curious, you still refuse to engage me with the facts about SLI, and for some reason I became Public Enemy #1 over the issue. But when I would approach colleagues about it in FBOs, on Facebook where I was being trashed, on here, recurrent, etc, all of a sudden guys like you clam up. I was even told by Handschuch, or perhaps even you, in recurrent class last April that I was not allowed to speak on the subject while Handschuch, or you, and Jim Dunn lead the charge in trashing the SLI process with my classmates right in front of me. Why was that? I could’ve been asked anything about the process but it’s much easier to shoot spitballs from the peanut gallery isn’t it? Want to talk about bullying? I was bullied and silenced in class and most likely would have been disciplined had I pushed the issue. Reminds of the Flight Options guy that Ricci fires for body language.”

What is all this about? Did I miss something?

I was wondering the same thing.

Apparently a letter went out from management claiming the families of the 7 pilots in the FU picture are being harassed and sent pornographic pictures through either mail or email (I've heard both) depicting their family members "in compromising positions."

Now here's what is the inside hilarious scoop supposedly directly from someone who "got mail" but claims he was ordered to be in the photo and felt his job was in jeopardy if he said no. (I'm not so sure).

The harasssing picture sent was the actual photo of the 7 giving the bird. It wasn't doctored in any way nor was any other photo sent. The only other thing along with it (to their home address) was asking the wives of these "men" if they were proud of their husband and if they were proud the father of their children thought this was good conflict resolution to teach their kids. Word is the union wasn't behind it at all but an ex-flexer not even with OneSky. It up to you to determine if that's harassment and worthy of the napalm response from management evidenced in the company wide "outrage."

So in a nutshell, Kenn Ricci is describing the actions of his own managers as pornography and harassment. However, instead of dealing with reality, he is trying to figure out a way to blame the IBT for his own ineffectual mismanagement.

In other words, same old same old.

Well, who took the photo?
I am sure the guys in the photo knew who it was since they were posing for him.

Who let it out, if it was suppose to be private? Was the photographer fired?
If it wasn't suppose to be private what are they crying about?

Just like teenagers who take photos of themselves then are upset when their parents see them on the internet.

The guy who took the pic is the Swedish Meatball. That's right, MS. And he took a selfie flipping off the truck. I believe he posted it to his Facebook page and that's how it came to light. He better have been playing both ends against the middle and voted for the Union. He's going to need someone to represent him when they fire him to cover this up!

seems theres someone in this little circle of trust that can't be trusted. who leaked the photo to the masses in the first place? "No honor among thieves". This type of behavior is completely against 2N core values. So lets see what action he is taking about that!! Offering 10K to catch the fictional Mad Mailer..what a Joke 10K. another insult. gave a marching band 5 million...So glad I no longer have to deal with this BS.. But I will be watching the vote and wish the best to my 1108 Brothers. Some of the finest pilots I ever worked with. The DECERT CLOWNS not so much!!! back to my Rum and Coke..

He should contact his union steward when he gets called into CGF to help save his job.

This whole investigation should start with him to see if a company cell phone was used in distribution of the offensive material. At least we know who started this whole mess and who is to blame for all of the bad PR and embarrassment to the company. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was fired first.

Wow, I've been following this thread for entertainment. I punched out after a decade. I can tell everyone that Flex/Flops is becoming an embarrassment to this profession. It is true that even the majors are taking notice. I would not want this company on my resume if i was in search of a job. Lots of classy unprofessional behaviour! If the IBT is voted out the remaining pilots are going to be in a world of hurt. The bottom 70% will be a revolving door! Every thread on here is just embarrassing...
