Do u ever wonder y would any crew in their right mind would want to be unionists? It's not like being unionist one would get paid (except for the president and general secretary). In the case of Alan (president) his union allowance is much lesser than the meal allowances and incentive flying allowances that he sacrifices. These unionists have to give up some of their flights and time to serve the members...and all for free. What do they get in return? Answers are curses,accusations of being favoured by management,eyeing for fast promotions etc. In the process fighting for the union leadership,the crew becomes bitter enemies eg. Between Alan's camp and Eddie's. So what the heck?
