Quoting KUGN (Reply 3): That will continue happening as long as unions keep blackmailing the airlines. There may be a day when no C checks are done in US.
Quoting N328KF (Reply 9): This is why unions need to get out of the airline industry.
It is not the unions. It is the high price of labor in the US. If unions like the ones in the US existed in China, United would still hire mechanics in China because of the low labor costs there. Unions, however, are part of the problem but not the cause.
I still agree with you, though, that unions are not very good for the airline industry

The high price of labor in the US is due to the unions. You don't see every airline sending their a/c out of the country, and can afford to do the heavy checks in house or in country because either a.) Their mechanics are not unionized or b.) Their mechanics are not overpaid.
