Re: One List

Due to a desire to change jobs back in late 2019, I thought I might start applying at WJ. The Onelist thing had fallen through. Seemed like a good place to work. Then all of a sudden, Onelist. Instead of anybody coming into WJ mainline from the outside starting at the bottom, which seemed fair, all...

Re: MOA2

Frankly I don’t believe the Encore MEC should have had the right to negotiate the terms of employment for those positions. I’m assuming most, if not all of those who negotiated those terms had their layoff notices already or would soon to be receiving them. This was a greasy play by the company to ...

Re: MOA2

This $625 compensation that only goes to a select group of Encore employees, can you explain what compensation the laid off WJ pilots who bump into Encore get? Why don’t they get $625? They are not coming as beggars, with cap in hand. They agreed to sell out the seniority of their fellow bargaining...

Re: MOA2

I agree with Stratopaused ... the Encore MEC did exactly what any MEC should do right now...try and protect jobs. In fact its what the mainline MEC should be trying to do as well .. what the hell is the point of laying off 1700 pilots, when you could have easily cut that number in half or a third b...

Look what is happening around you?? Are you blind. Airlines are crumbling around the world. What kind of deal did you expect? You think you can get water from a stone?

Re: One list

Voting yes to this is a no brainer as it makes the pilots unified and content vs a divisive group. [/u] Industry leading really. It only strengthens us and the company. WJ has to wait for the encore TA to wrap up is my guess and glad the WJ MEC has stopped playing games to get this rolled out. Not ...

Re: MOA2

If mainline pilots do not like the WAWCON at Encore and the MOA2, they are not forced into a position at Encore. So take the layoff and go on EI. Simple as that. The Encore MEC fought and kept 150 more Encore positions available which are all going to Mainline pilots IF they want them. Nobody is for...

Re: One List is Back!!

Hi FlyAlberta! I get it might not be exact dollars but my understanding is it’s $28,800 over 24 months. This keeps you topped up until you hit step 3 pay after 2 years. Still a fantastic uplift vs starting back at starting WJ wage sorry to mislead by saying “no pay cut”. I guess I should have said ...

Re: One List

It’s a huge win for everyone at Encore and the Westjet pilot group as a whole. We are now unified and rowing in the same direction moving forward as one group. The negativity towards this PTA is unfounded. There is no way encore and westjet pilots were better off without it. The argument that it is ...

Re: ONEX deal foreign ownership problems

I imagine WJ and ONEX were well aware of the foreign ownership laws prior to agreeing to this purchase. A company like ONEX would have done its due diligence knowing full well there would be a red flag raised by a competitor or the government if this deal violated foreign ownership laws. AC just try...

Re: Landing on hotter day

Hi Rotorspeed, Changes in temperature will not give you more or less ground effect. What you will experience on hotter days that will affect your aircrafts landing performance is an increase in true airspeed. This will result in longer landing distances and in some cases on very hot days, noticeably...
