Actually the comment is quite naive and displays AvifiskAlly doesn’t understand the certification process.Impact wrote: ↑Sun Feb 18, 2018 4:14 pmNailed it!AvifiskAlly wrote: ↑Sun Feb 18, 2018 9:44 amFanblade wrote: ↑Sun Feb 18, 2018 9:04 am
You have misconstrued the point. The Swoop flying contractually belongs to the WJ pilot group. End of story. Until it is negotiated otherwise, or there is a strike lockout, it remains fact.
Seeking to take what belongs to someone else is the moral question.
If you apply to Swoop, and are willing to take the job, you are volunteering to help WJ management pressure it’s pilots into pay and working condition cuts.
Then you have the audacity to complain about wages???????????????
Flying belongs to no group. WJ pilots have earned Nothing yet. Don’t even have a contract yet. Give the rest of us some credit for not getting involved in your own self righteous crusade to line your own pocket.
Airtids post is correct.
The WJ contract is currently frozen. It can only be altered through arbitration/negotiation or Strike/lockout. Since this is a first contract the only options are negotiation/arbitration.
Negotiation is preferred as the jurisprudence for arbitration on a first contract provides very little likelihood for change. (with the exception of introducing a grievance process)
If either side wants changes they will have to negotiate. It s clear WJ management wants wages and working condition changes at swoop. Those changes must be negotiated or the current contract applies.
The WJ pilots themselves want changes. Those also need to be negotiated.
There are really only two likely out comes.
1) They sit down and negotiate an agreement that both can work with.
2) Go to arbitration and live with the status quo for two more years.
If WJ management decides to go Rogue and unilaterally impose Swoop wages and working conditions? ( I really doubt it) Buyer beware. There would be a high probability it would be struck down through arbitration, leaving those who took the jobs in an uncertain position.
