He is a hypocrite!

The man has recently ordered the union busting of the Netjet pilot union when they start negotiating next March for a new contract. Things are going to really get ugly for the clients at Netjets next year.

Rumor has it he has started the same tactic against the nurses union that represent Berkshire Hathaway's hosiptals!

The above comment is either from a former NetJest exec of the park city zip code or perhaps former marquis free jet execs trying to generate business for themselves. Pathetic. If we're lucky warren will buy us and make us a NetJets company.

I am a Netjets pilot and feel lucky and privileged to work at Netjets. Negotiations are lalways ugly but we all hope it will process very fast so that we can get back to safely transporting our passengers. By the way, Netjets made a $200 million profit in a very tough year, 2012... Warm regards..
