Huh ? If the union screws you then you need to run for office so you can do what ? Screw over the area rep that screwed you ? How does that change the fact that you worked a schedule for a year that your seniority should have kept you from working so the area rep could work what he wanted? If I’m well informed and well spoken I can climb the ladder. What if I’m not ? What if I’m just a normal Joe who wants his union to not actively break the rules for their pawn benefit ? In your words I may need to do some boot licking to accomplish that. That is how democracy works? There may be some truth to that but it’s a sad statement. And to expect Obama to make us whole was foolish and unrealistic? When the republicans imposed the work rules zero democrats voted with them and a number of republicans voted to not impose them. So when Democrats controlled the White House and Congress it was foolish to believe they would undo the injustice done to us?
You’ll never get back pay or more pay or better benefits just because you thought you got screwed over. That’s just nonsense.
Ya the "if you don't like it run against them" attitude is dumb. I shouldn't have to be part of the good ole boy network or win the facility popularity contest to get adequate representation as a dues paying member.
I agree you shouldn’t have to, but speaking out with no plan and just complaining about what went wrong is useless. Actually doing some work to help make it better in the future prevents it from happening again. Help make the good ole boy system end. Is that overly optimistic? Probably

We are gonna build the crystal palace. It's gonna be a big beautiful combined control facility. Folks you are gonna love it. People are saying it's really gonna happen. Oh? The snowflakes don't like it? Guess what the tower just got ten feet shorter!
Give me a crystal phallus and you have my vote.

Exactly, and they will never take a poll because they already know the answer
Don’t know if it’s like this in other places, but I know the majority (not all, but definitely the majority) of NATCA reps at my facility are people who either hate or are afraid of working traffic, and their main goal is to climb the union ladder. We have at least a half dozen “controllers” who sit in an office M-F 0700-1300 on “NATCA detail.” All as we’re critically short staffed. The whole thing is a scam.

You’re not a real NATCA big dog until you get yourself assigned to a Telework agreement and have work from home detail a few days a week with no supervision at all. While the area you supposedly represent is 6 under the numbers most days with mandatory holdover going out.

And if you think that’s an issue, you must just hate the union and don’t understand the issues!

They’re definitely busy trying get “manned aircraft” removed from the dictionary.
