Keep arogancy out of the cockpit and keep your customers happy and informed.
Dude, there is a press release out from the unions today that as from May 1st, strikes are a real possibility at Brussels Airlines, so please don't come to act as if you aren't warned well before and were taken hostage on the spot.
The reason the unions have decided to go public with this today is because they absolutely want to avoid having to go on strike and truly hope that just like you, the top management is fully able to understand that a stike will be a disaster for Brussels Airlines and will thus rather agree to the fair and balanced demands that have been made...
Over the coming days, we will see just how concerned the management really is with the wellbeing of their thousands of passangers and staff like they always pretend in the media (e.g.: recent strike at BRU).
Let's see who will be the arrogant one:
-) the unions demanding the firing of the person responsible for the refreshingly new human resource policy of destroying professional carriers of those pilots leaving because they are not happy,
-) the management holding on to the person in question willing-nillingly and thus in effect pardoning his methods as 'just another tool to keep things going', which in this particular case 'accidentally got a bit out of hand'...
I think that it would be proof of great arrogance form the management to defy a general strike for the sake of holding on to a person who has obviously done something more than simply not done, even in the eyes of the CEO...
Unless the CEO speaks with 2 mouths and the intimidation tactics used by the person in question have become 'new company human resource policy after all, in which case it would seem logic the management stands by him... and the unions definitely should go on strike!
