What does code summer mean?


Do not answer if you are a member of United AFA and REALLY know the answer. This thread is for the speculators!

My guess is that Summer means do not strike, everything is fine. I say this because nobody is striking.

The fact that they have a "trademark" on the acronym CHAOS kind of tells me what they're all about... and it surely doesn't seem to be the good of the members. How about the people on that GUTS list just quit, instead of taking down the whole airline with no regards for those who NEED that job to feed their kids.

This whole website looks like something that would be put together before a rollercoaster opens at an amusement park... and this is supposed to be a professional bargaining group?

Ladies and gentlemen, I have a feeling the CHAOS is on:


"We continue to pursue legal and legislative solutions to preserve our pension," said Davidowitch. "But United management should now be on notice: today's termination of our pension plan sets the stage for CHAOS strikes this SUMMER. We don't want to strike, but we will if that's the only way to protect our retirement security and preserve the career that has attracted the talent integral to United's success."

My guess is that code "summer" means that there is a list of cities and/or flights that subject to a strike. I would assume that when things were heating up earlier in the year, there was code "spring". The difference may be due to spring and summer UA schedules.

I'm just curious. It's now after 12:00 pm Central Time. Has AFA actually conducted any strikes, yet?
