 AIN Online November 2002: Pilots asked to take sides in Freedom Airlines fight   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Mesa Air Group’s designs for a new non-union subsidiary to fly its planned fleet of 64- and 84-seat jets continues to face stiff resistance from the powers that be within the Air Line Pilots Association, starting with none other than ALPA president Duane Woerth.
He called work rules and benefits “comparable.” Mesa Air Group CEO Jonathan Ornstein has offered captains willing to transfer from one of its existing subsidiaries a one-year leave of absence from Mesa or Air Midwest, with an option to renew for another year, and a two-year leave of absence for first officers.
Since then ALPA has charged Mesa management with refusing to set dates for negotiations, refusing to respond to union proposals and failing to issue proposals of its own, all in an effort to delay a new agreement until it established the non-union subsidiary as a vehicle to subvert ALPA’s bargaining power.
