GoJet was a way for Trans States to subvert the TSA
pilots seniority list, and pay pilots less money. The hard work of the TSA
pilots generated the profits that bought those CRJ-700s. But instead of getting the benefits of those aircraft (quicker upgrade), TSA
pilots got shafted by greedy pilots who were willing to take substandard wages and screw over TSA
's pilots in exchange for quickly getting PIC time.
A similar event took place at Mesa when they first created Freedom. Freedom was a separate seniority list, and was thought of in a very similar light to GoJet. These are known as the Freedom "A" pilots. Mesa today has such a crappy contract because their pilots had to take concessions in order to get management to put the Freedom operation back on the Mesa seniority list.
The definition of a scab has usually been one who crosses a picket line. Neither Freedom or GoJet pilots did this, but they did show a willingness to further their careers by stepping on the backs of others. So while technically not scabs, Freedom "A" and GoJet pilots are not thought of fondly by many regional pilots.
It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.
