Volunteering for ALPA

My god am I tired of hearing this. "They're paying FOs at Delta what I'm making in the left seat!" "Yep. Have you applied?" "Well, I haven't kept up with my logbook since I upgraded...but I guarantee you if I was a female I'd have gotten called!"
I can guarantee, with certainty, that's not the reason. Teeeee'rust me.

Double more so.

I work for a really cheap ass airline. Why would I help Frontier or jetBlue push in the alley before me?

If you want to volunteer, why wouldn't you volunteer at Skywest? Whatever work ALPA needs done, probably needs doing at Skywest/SAPA too.
Good question. I contacted most of our committees and was told that they don't use volunteers or need any help. I haven't looked at CIRP yet, thanks for bringing that up. As for helping ALPA at other airlines...that isn't my wish at all. I was under the impression that ALPA national utilizes volunteers for a variety of purposes and that they don't favor one carrier over another...it's that feeling of pan-airline unity that I enjoy.
