"I almost fainted when I saw the agreement, but those "greedy pilots" are going to vote it down. Go to ipa.org. for update. Now back to the "greedy mechanic", we are asking for a fair contract, thats it, whether it seems outragous to you or not" I understand a fair contract and I understand your desire to be the best compensated in the industry. My understanding is this offer would have accomplished both. Looking at the details I'm not at all sure why anyone would refuse it. It appears to be very generous. It seems a little outrageous to ask for so much more at a time when the airline industry is reeling.
