Re: Cargo TA

I think they will too, but! I would put nothing passed AC management. I don't know the details well enough but I would imagine the ALPA agreement protects pilots in this scenario. Ac management won’t have a say. It’s Labor law. Seniority will be negotiated via both unions. Where do the rules differ...

Re: Cargo TA

Here you go again. You found a rationalization as to why FEDEX and UPS pilots are not Cargo pilots. FedEx and UPS pilots fly cargo, there is no denying that, but FedEx and UPS are more than just cargo airlines; they provide the full, end-to-end cargo delivery from pick-up, flight and delivery at th...

Re: Cargo TA

Just got a call from a friend of mine who flies for Delta. He couldn’t believe it passed. Our union is officially the laughing stock of the industry now. Congratulations ACPA! At least you’re #1 at something I guess?

Re: Cargo TA

Looks like this forum has been taken over by Pilots on Furlough, who think they have all the answers. Quite funny actually, we saw this after TA1 when a bunch of children stood at the back of the meeting and heckled the presenters. A couple of those clowns managed to get into elected positions and ...

Re: Cargo TA

Anyone who votes yes is a retard. Full stop. Well so far I've seen my YUL LEC chair support yes YVR Councilor beg to vote yes YVR LEC Chair says this is a 90% pay raise for a furlough Our YWG chair who is the head of the negotiations committee obviously supports his work. He essentially votes twice...

Re: Cargo TA

Wow so much emotion and as usual so much finger pointing at each other. The focus should be on the Company’s insistence on inserting a concessionary clause from CCAA that was negotiated out of the contract in 2011. Get mad at them not ACPA. We ARE mad at the company. But MORE angry that our spinele...

Re: Cargo TA

I hear you, makes no sense to me. The first fin is coming back on Sunday from MZJ to YYZ so this thing is happening no matter what. You should spend some time to reach out and tell the word to your friends. Turnout is around 30% so there is still time to reverse it. Most of my friends are furloughe...

Re: Cargo TA

From what I hear around me, I feel it will pass. Sad but it is what it is, people are scared to loose that flying. At this point, the company will probably come back with a 50% pay cut to compete with swoop and flair. Like they say, secure the flying now and fix it later....can't wait. "Secure...

Re: Cargo TA

The whole notion that "we need to capture this flying" is what really irked me on the webinar. Where the hell is it gonna go if not to us? There is language in the contract to this very effect. I guess when we have an MEC that doesn't UPHOLD the contract, this is what we can expect? If thi...

Re: Cargo TA

Can someone explain to me why our contract exists? There is clear language in our contract covering the setup of a Cargo division, and the ramifications if the Corp decides to use an outside source. Its ALL there. Our MEC has chosen to ignore the very language that was agreed to by the Corp and our...

Re: Cargo TA

Why would anyone in their right mind vote yes to this? How is ACPA gonna "sell it" this time?

They should be embarrased for even putting something like this forward to the membership. What a joke.

Re: Cargo TA

If it's the same flying, in the same airplanes, WHY is it being done at a cheaper rate? Who gives a shit if there's people or cargo in the back? And cargo flying often has WORSE scheduling and work conditions, if anything it should pay more. Who in their right mind would bid to go over there? Am I m...

Re: Cargo TA

I see this being a good thing IF it's at MAINLINE pay rates and work rules. 12 days off is bullshit, and how long until you have a 3 day layover somewhere and "those are your days off?" I doubt it will bring anyone back from furlough (like me) either. Also, will you be able to bid into and...

Yeah, you cling to that thought Pelmet. Did you read a single word that I wrote? Masks and quarantine and social dist...
