We have been asked for a recommended amount to donate. We are requesting an initial one-time donation of $150-200. Then,...
after filing, we expect to ask for a smaller monthly contribution to sustain longer term litigation. Doing it this way lets us do two things: 1) get started quicker and in smaller steps, and 2) give us a better idea of a more reasonable amount to suggest for a monthly contribution based on how many pilots donated during the first phase. This second phase will put your contributions on autopilot and provide consistent and reliable financial support for our mutual cause.
“By your agreement to donate funds to LCPAF, you understand that:
1. Such donation is inherently speculative in nature, and there is no guarantee that sufficient donations can be generated from our base of affected Legacy Continental pilots or others to allow LCPAF, on behalf of the Legacy Continental pilots, to fund the anticipated retainer and other necessary expenses that will be required to protect the rights and interests of the Legacy Continental Pilots.
2. Even if sufficient funds are donated to LCPAF to fund the costs of the anticipated litigation, there is no guarantee that such litigation will result in a reversal of the award of the ALPA arbitrator, or otherwise positively impact the seniority or status of the legacy pilots.
3. The act of donation does not make a person a party to any possible litigation. A separate process for that is TBD.
