More secret negotiations

Have you heard anything new about the US Airways merger?  No?  Neither have we.  While the rumors are flying around fast and furious, our beloved leaders at the APFA are now taking part in secret, closed door negotiations about a merger.  Several media reports have stated that our flight attendant leadership has joined the pilots in merger talks.

Isn't it good to know that our leaders are off in back rooms making secret deals?

What we need is transparent leadership, not back room dealing.  Laura Glading is as much of a "good old boy" as anyone in the executive suite at American.  We know what Laura's interests are: a bigger paycheck, more members and a larger throne to sit on.

But what does Laura know about our interests?  If she knows anything, she certainly isn't saying it.  In fact, the lack of communication about what is going on behind closed doors is incredibly disturbing.  There's no accountability and no transparency.

If we wanted that, we'd go into politics!

Open the door, Laura.  And let us have a voice in important decisions about our future.

APFA not earning our dues

As usual, our talented leaders at the APFA have given themselves raises.  But what happens when they don't do their job and earn their fat salaries?  The natives get restless.  This screenshot is from a Facebook group discussion by APFA members about a prefunding refund of employee contributions.

So what exactly IS the APFA doing?  What a mess.  Our dues money at work!

Then again, I'm sure Laura needed a new Prada bag.

Laura Glading refuses to take criticism

That's really the only way I can understand what she and the APFA have been trying to do recently, which is to shut me down.  In the best imitation of a dictator, Laura has ordered her cronies to find out who I am and come after me to shut me up. Obviously I am hitting close to home with these posts if she is so scared to have a critical voice out there.

Last week they cried to Twitter and had my account shut down, even though Twitter allows parody accounts, which mine obviously was.  Laura must have promised them free drinks for life on any American flight.

Last time I checked we lived in a Democracy, where all voices mattered.  APFA is supposed to be a democratic union, but more often than not Laura runs it like a mob, sicking her thugs on anyone who dares disagree with her.

Well Laura, I'm still here.  And still blogging.  And more and more American flight attendants are finding this blog every day. Good luck shutting me down.  You'll need it.

Recall Laura Glading!
