Re: GGN YYZ 1900 to Cease Operation

Transition to Air Canada? Right. :lol: Not so hard to believe. In the past year or so there has been about 10-20 in the PIT courses coming right from a 1900. Majority from Georgian, few from EVAS and some from other operators of the plane. Wish the crews there best of luck, hope this works out for ...

Re: PML Portal

Is it all bad news for B scale? Doesn’t sound like there’s a PML, low wages, and slower upgrades with the LOA? I think AVCan readers need to remember most people on here that talk about the current PML not working are either not at Express or didn't make it through the process. One would have to as...

What info could you possibly be looking for about hiring when this website is covered in Air Georgian hiring ads? Click on one and it gives all their hiring requirements. Pretty sure they're hiring all positions right now.
Pool interviews for FO on 1900 and CRJ and hiring DEC CRJ only.

Re: Union at Sky

If the biggest plus of your company is that it makes it easier to work somewhere else, you might be doing something wrong as a company. I would think the opposite. They're doing something very right by using something that costs them nothing as a form of compensation. Depends. If people leave quick...

What’s really interesting is that the antagonistic avifiskAlly has shut his pie hole now that real positive outcomes are emerging from these negotiations
I just think it's a long game and it is far from over. The deal will be the deal but from what I see so far the company has done pretty well.

Except that the AC pilot union supports the blacklist! And the odds are pretty good that one of the people reviewing your job application to AC is a union member or leader.

Re: Bargaining idea

I always wondered this. What is the “classic airline”? The classic airline was (from what I understand) an attempt by the company to spin off the DH8 classics into its own airline (kinda like rouge and swoop). In an attempt to make it another division with cheaper labour. What ended up happening wa...

But It’s going to sound an awful lot like Russian figure skating judging if he vetos a candidate with time on type or heavy jet experience vs someone off the street with Q or 1900 time, all else the same.

Re: Bargaining idea

This is all playing out to Air Canada’s master plan perfectly. This whole contract was a union bust and they are playing both sides like fiddles. The strongest thing any union can have is solidarity in its membership. The greatest loss in the 2015 contract was the loss of solidarity in the separati...

Pretty simple really. No list required. If the listed Swoop DOH is prior to a WJ CBA then you’re a SCAB plain and simple. We don’t need a list to know who they are.
So. And what? Who cares.
