PILOT UNION NEEDED AT EMIRATES

Would it help bring unity to such a divided diverse group? A real union is not legal, but some sort of representation would be useful in many areas to improve overall job satifaction.

That's the type of BS no one in both CX or Emirates needs to hear. I'm no fan of 50% of the decisions the HKAOA has made, especially the current path we are going down, but a Union, especially in a country with next to no Labour Laws, is a necessity.

Why don't you go and talk to AAR about that. He's in his office today. Let us know what he says.

He says pop down to Costa at 1500 if you're interested and you can have a nice chat over a coffee about it. Bring your own biscuits...

The best option is the option that provides the most options. It sure as sh!t is not ek. The sooner you jokers stop kidding yourselves and realize you are selling your health to soul suckers, the sooner you realize the sham for what it is. I've been telling myself the past three or four years: "It can't possibly get any worse. Things have to improve." And surprise surprise they keep finding new ways to squeeze the life out of what used to be an enjoyable roster. It's a liberating feeling to finally see this place for what it is and what it isn't. It's even more exhilarating to know there is a finish line ahead. I hope those who haven't fully assimilated get to experience that liberation and exhilaration.

Unions exist to help....themselves. My first/previous airline was ALPA, and never accomplished anything good. Just took our money every month.

Na, calling you on that! 1500?! Far too late in the day. If you'd said 11:00 I'd have believed you

He meant the year 1500. You've got about 60 Earth years to go.
