JC5280, is exactly right. It is the AFA leadership not the flight attendants who are talking. Just as its Randy Canale and not the CS
and Ramp employees talking.
Frankly I think more and more CSRs are sick and tired of having the Union take our money in dues every month and represent retirees NOT US crrent employees. And I have said so to our commitee person.
At this point there is a fifty-fifty mix of people who voted in this Union and those like me hired right after the vote who never got the chance to voice thier opinion I was required to join.
I think that Tilton and crew have done a magnificent job keeping UA
running with the mess they found from Goodwin. F/A's are being recalled from furlough and the AFA is bitchin'.
FYI look for the Financial Times, thier article on the 6000 jobs being cut noted that the jobs will be lost to more efficent operations and there is no time tale for the job cuts. Meaning according to the article that Some will probably be lost to retirees that are not replaced, some will be due to fleet reductions, and some will probably be due to automation in reservations and check-in at the airport. AS
Ua goes more web based in reservations and more kiosks and automated processes come on line Res and CSR's will not be replaced as they go from stations.
A little less Hooah, and a little more Dooah.
