I'm thinking its because guarantees are getting cut back and there is a very militant pro union group that think a union will solve all of their problems, which it won't but that's what they think. Every airline has such a group though most airlines are already unionized. They selected Teamsters most likely because the flight attendants went with Teamsters.
Why the teamsters and not ALPA? ALPA seems to have a much better record lately than the teamsters in representing pilots. Just ask the RAH pilots....and the GoJet contract is one of the lowest paying ones in industry
I dont get this at all.
