It's all in the election threads if you wanna go read through them. This website is a phenomenal resource, it is especially useful for those looking to get hired or transfer. That being said, it's not like it helps us do our job better or we're required to use it. Most controllers don't, it doesn't mean they're hiding it means they're doing something elseI'd be interested to hear about the "circles" -- I really haven't felt I've gotten a clear understanding of "WHY" we want to privatize. I hear the push for it during shutdowns, but as Foogy notes, that's not a "reason" to privatize so much as it is a reason to push the legislatures/pres to get their acts together. I don't understand what actual, immediate and direct benefit it will be to us. (Noting that it "works great" elsewhere is also not a solid reason)
While I agree the union should be focusing on its members, we as the members should use situational awareness, and again I ask why WE are the only tiny group of 15K people seeking to exit the government. I mention what detriment us leaving could have on other agencies only to point it out.
If the only actual reason we are seeking privatization is these shutdowns (and given that it's brought up pretty much only during shutdowns, that's what I'm led to believe)--- I feel our membership is willing to take on way too much risk for a seemingly hidden reward.
This makes sense. So who are these people who voted? Where are they hiding? You're here, a couple others. That's it?
