Strength In Numbers
In the "us versus them" world of being a pilot for a Delta Air
Lines subisidiary, the past few months haven't been easy -- as the
bankrupt carrier has battled with all of its feeder operations in
an effort to cut costs. Well, those pilots can rest a little easier
today... because the "us" side of that equation appears to have
gotten a lot stronger.
Last week, leaders for Comair, Atlantic Southeast Airlines, Mesa
Air Group, and Chautauqua Airlines agreed to join forces, to
present a united front in negotiations with the Atlanta-based
airline... to, as one Comair pilot put it, remove Delta's ability
to stir resentment between the regional feeders -- the old "divide
and conquer" strategy.
Both the Air Lines Pilot Union and the International Brotherhood
of Teamsters are involved in the agreement, the latter representing
pilots at Chatauqua.
Time will tell how well the joint bargaining effort will work...
but it's hard to deny that there's strength in numbers.
