Spoon- If your intent is to stir the pot and try to create discord and breed class envy, skip it.
As some of my fellow management colleagues above have succintly stated, a management employee is an at-will employee. He/she can be sacked for no reason at any time. There is no union with it's infinite number of grievance procedures, challenges and levels of discpline. One and done, if that's the way the chips fall.
Furthermore, as PMK stated, most mgmt employees work well in excess of 40+ hours a week, and if they travel, that is more time away from home. There is no overtime. There is no holiday pay, especially for operational management employees.
Additionally, as someone whose job was a 9/11 casualty, I can tell you that unlike a line union employee who has recall rights if furloughed within a seniority system, that doesn't pertain to management. And I know for a fact that UA
mgmt folks have taken pay cuts, with CO
having been frozen for the past 3 years. I can't speak to the other major carriers as to their pay status. Moreover, most of those jobs that were cut after 9/11 never came back. Hence, many management employees have taken on more responsibility at ALL
levels of the company, and are wearing several hats. If you have any perception whatsoever that management or non-union employees don't carry their "fair share" (the buzzword of the class-envy crowd), then I'll kindly tell you that your perception is grossly incorrect.
