    Sound off

    The FAA is using illegal/racist practices to hire new Air Traffic Controllers. Class action lawsuit started.

     
    o What REALLY Caused The FAA To Institute A Policy Against CTI Students?



    Was it a researched and validated change made to benefit the public as a whole? No. No research or validation. The FAA didn’t even know (see the TELECON transcript) that the barrier analysis, meant to be a cornerstone of the “reason” for the policy change does not support their results oriented allegations.



    Was it legitimate barriers to fair and open participation? No. No real barriers (see the barrier analysis report). The FAA’s own “studies” and consultants (please see the information on these folks- it’s startling) can give no plausible reason for the change.



    Racial politics and quotas? Correct. The National Black Coalition Federal Aviation Employees (“NBCFAE”) did not like the fact that CTI students, because of their perceived race, were in a preferred hiring pool. This is despite the barrier analysis report’s determination that CTI students were diverse.
