So last night, the company made another offer...and my union trashed right there at the table...for the second time. The second offer we had from the company...they did the same thing. With no chance for the people to look at it or to vote on it. And the second off bumped the ratification bonus from $2000 to $2500, and this third offer bumped that up to another $1000...so we could have got a decent offer, and $3500 for just signing the contract and get back to work. $3500...80/20 insurance, and back to work....nothing wrong with that at all. Nothing. Of course my insurance would be $29 a week, for me and the wife...and thats damn affordable. I'm tired of this shit. Over 153 people have crossed from 3400 people in the union, and now I'm sure another 500 will cross now that they have seen this BS that the union leaders have pulled. How can they have the authority to junk 2 offers with out the full union even seeing them, or voting on them? This is getting old...and I'm getting tired of it. If I do cross...it's not going to effect me too much...I can live with the union guys hating me, not talking to me at work, or calling me names...but theres also the head strong dummies that will find out where you live, and poke holes in tires, break windshields, burn down houses....etc... I can't not live with threats to me or my family, or property... I'm standing on my last leg....if any other crap happens or if something good doesn't come to light real soon...then I might just cross...and become one of the hated employee's.... On another note...the wife is really set to have me just move to GA, open a little FBO (feild base of operation) for small and medium planes. She's already looking at houses down there, and her freinds are going down there next month to look for a job and houses... All I need to do is get my FAA IA licence, and start an LLC, have it under the wifes name...and open a shop.
