Misc. Mondays: Jet Blue Votes Against Union

I don’t normally report on individual union organizing campaigns or elections, but this one is worth relaying to you because the overwhelming majority of airlines are unionized.  This 10-year old airline has had minor attempts from unions trying to organize it, but none as severe as last week’s secret ballot election.  Jet Blue has about 2,000 pilots and only 33% of them voted in favor of the union.  You can read the official press release from Jet Blue here.
