Re: Profit Sharing this April ?

Why would it be based on a percentage of your salary? Did they lower paid pilot make the company less profit? If anything they made them more by costing them less.

You are not allowed to fly on the ragged edge. Too risky. Better to hit the ground.

Personally I would not fly an aircraft with such a system. Too risky.

My apologies for incorrectly referring to the aircraft model as 737-800 Max rather than 737 Max 8.

Re: 737 max

Company has what 500 MAX pilot out of 4000? So worst case scenario all those position were eliminated you would need around seniority 3500 to have a spot still. This will not happen though. There are too many empty position to fill up.

I hope it doesn't come out in the world news that Air Canada pilot are fighting for the right to smoke marijuana. The reputation has taken enough hit already.

Re: First few years pay

I don't know how we got in this situation where pilot only get paid if the airline is profitable. It is not real salary.

Re: Cannabis Policy ???

No making something illegal for only part of the population is the definition of discrimination.
I also laugh at AC policy to strictly all social drug but alcohol. I wonder how many smoking a cigarette or drinking a coffee realize they violate that policy.

If their own employee have to pay for accommodation I do not think they are going to pay for people that do not even work for them.

Re: Swoop Blacklist

Does the blacklist apply also to the short term contract pilot? They are paying $1200 usd per day so above Westjet pay.

When you apply at Swoop you are applying at Westjet. And you don't even need to argue that. Westjet pilot and ALPA will do that for you.

Re: Swoop interview process

In person interview with one pilot and one HR. Typical tell me about a time question. You do a technical exam on a ipad that was not too hard.
