We still go piss on a couple of scabs graves,not to proud of it but that’s what scabs deserve .
Maybe someone will return the favor for you when you pass!
Maybe so,but it won’t be because I was a scab.
One thing I can say about working in the Airline Industry for 40+ years now, When I was in a union it felt like there was always an Us against them constantly... Once I went to where there was no union, I have always gotten along with the Bosses and work together with them... I ultimately made more money (especially after Union Dues) and enjoy work much better in a Non-Union Environment. I cannot speak for others, but that is the way it is for me... One take away from Unions is they support the Slackers an lazy people to where the rest of us ended up having to cover for them... Now, we all work together and happily in my last job and my current job! Best move I ever made and don't have to do more than my fair share due to a slack off worker. I will get flamed and down voted for this, but it is simply the facts.
No blowtorch here for you. Our association had a really great pilot negotiator and we all benefited……right up until the company made him VP of Flight Ops. Now he never forgot his roots but it was different type of negotiation tactic from then on. I personally like a company with an employee share plan where the company matches the employee. You tend to look at the whole employment/ compensation picture a little differently when you own a piece of it.
Southwest has lived a charmed life. When they have an incident their PR department does a great job sugar coating whatever happened. Their behind the scenes dealing with the FAA and Boeing really need to come to the surface. Their downwind takeoffs and landings are well known to those of us lined up to takeoff and land into the wind. And of course, they are they only airline that thinks a 737-200 and a 737-800Max are the same airplane.
