    Any time I see the word "Union" I feel like sending military troops into their headquarters.

    They'll simply dissolve and the better pilots will get jobs with other carriers and the remainder will try to get absorbed into the new Envoy.

    Isn't there some way they could make it performance based pay? Is that too much to ask or is there really no way to differentiate a better pilot from an average pilot (hopefully, there are no bad pilots)? If not, they have to hire a lot of intrinsically motivated people.

    Performance based pay would sound like an alien concept to any given union.

    This is bad for all involved, including us! The lesson learned here is that hand shake agreements mean absolutely nothing. Get it in writing and SIGNED!

    Or elect someone like Reagan to the WH. He knew what to do in similar situations.

    Ha! That was bad for all involved too! Espcially the flying public. That's what they're already doing...making promises to get support and then getting amnesia once they get what they want. If an employer renigged on an agreement and then asked for even more concessions who here wouldn't be upset?? If AA raised the price on my held ticket and said I have to pay $100 more I'd be upset. Same difference.
