Next week the Airline big wheels are headed to ANC for a get-together. The rumor is that ANC will be reducing due to Pac-Rim freight reductions. The Pilots flight scheldules are due soon and they are the first to know trip parings which in turn dictates how the airline is run. The mechanics, in turn, have a contract which expired in 2005 have not had a raise and the company is not bargaining in good faith. Why does UPS make employees go for years without an increase in wages or benefits but give the Grade 20's a 200% bonus for the last 2 years. The DFW, CAE, and DEC shutdowns are just the beginning for UPSers.
