If it's the airline business, they're given massive bonuses and accolades. Michelle Burns is still employed and Kolshack is on what, his third airline in as many years?If a captain runs his ship aground in the Navy, he loses his command immediately and is off the ship within an hour.
If there's anyone that the UAL MEC hates more than Tilton, it's Kolshack. Those MEC and LEC updates that they send out about that guy are just classic. "Kolshack is not, was not, and never shall be a UAL Captain." Beautiful!He's part of the cadre that hired Kolshack. I mean, with all that previous warning, how can you respect a guy like Tilton?
In my opinion, the current UAL MEC is the best MEC that ALPA has seen since the Rick Dubinski UAL MEC, circa 2000. Captain Wallach is of the same strategic mind as Dubinski, and that's exactly what is needed. Sometimes only hardball politics will do.Jtrain and PCL - please pass along my approval to the UALPA MEC - I am sure they are waiting for it.
