Re: could of been the whiskey-could of been the beer

security gets an erection if they think they can bust a pilot for drinking - a word to the wise! Are you part of the old boys club, defending the pilots ?

Re: Updates on one - list.

From ALPA to mainline pilots : This is the plan going forward: the MEC has approved the renegotiation of the transfer protocol for pilots between the WestJet Group of companies. The MEC has further decided to maintain the status quo by keeping Encore pilots' reserved positions on the WestJet Pilot S...

Updates on one - list.

Don’t lose hope yet Boys n Girls.

3rd party phone polling starting up soon for the mainline pilots to see what went wrong. I don’t think ALPA would be spending the money on the 3rd party calls if it was all just for show. Keep positive . 👍

Re: One list

The real information comes from our peers and general knowledge of the industry. We all know Encore has 60% flow (50% until recently), and that WJ has continued to post for external pilots since 2014. Outside hiring has continued, and will continue. Management has informed us that, for the foreseea...

Re: One list

Everybody stays as is and going forward make two lists. If Encore is going to start hiring 500 hr instructors who will be more senior than the OTS hire with Jet time and experience at mainline it will not end well. So shouldn't we be doing whatever we can to make Encore desirable for more experienc...

Re: Which Canadian Airlines expect their Flight Deck Crew to also be Cabin Groomers?

2 months and 4 days of no grooming. Feels nice to have finally shed that hat. I’m no longer morally or in principle tied to it, and I feel better at work with more time to focus on the proper job of a pilot. Mentally it’s also nice knowing WJ management is no longer able to take advantage of my free...

Re: SWOOP - A New Hires Future

The company wouldn't have been able to play pilots against eachother if the OTS guys hadn't signed on knowing they were skirting a labour dispute. So you're saying that ALPA wanted to prevent anyone else from taking what they perceived as "well-paying" jobs for them, so that the company is forced t...

Re: Which Canadian Airlines expect their Flight Deck Crew to also be Cabin Groomers?

This Rank practice needs to be put to sleep.
Gawd I hope no other airline attempts to demean its front end crews with this policy. Sooner we put an end to it the sooner our profession starts having some pride again.
