Re: Nolinor Aviation Starts New Airline

Any efficiencies they though they may have will be blown outta the water operating into PVR or CUN. I can't imagine these old girls will be to good at 4000', 40 miles back during the approach.

Re: Where is our union?

I agree FL320. Our Unions/Reps here are crap. It blows my mind that the only communications that we get from ALPA are reminders that pilot assistance is available. How about we are planning a rally to show support and that we are struggling, how about a notice of this is what we are working on. I do...

Wasaya

With Covid, Wasaya did a large amount of layoffs. Last week they posted a job ad for Captains and FO's for the Hawker, does that mean that all laid off pilots were called back??

So essentially GGN declares bankruptcy, while starting a #'d company. #'d company purchases all assest's at pennies on the dollar while the title GGN goes down in flames.

Nothing in our CBA stating 120 months, not sure where you got that from. In the CBA you can take a personal leave up to 6 months.

Re: WS/WO Layoff Mitigation Agreement

Unless it is stated in a labour agreement, than it is 12 months. Pilots are protected as your CBA states 120 months. My understanding for this is the law, right now, states that anyone on a LOA for 6 months is then required to be paid a severance from the company. Asking for a let on this is to allo...

Re: WS/WO Layoff Mitigation Agreement

Depends on how the LOU for the CEWS is written.

Also, it's 75% of salary to a maximum of $847 per week, therefore if you make anything over 70K you'll only get the $847.

Re: WS/WO Layoff Mitigation Agreement

No, If you are laid off you collect the CERB. If you are still in the employ of the company you get the CEWS. Quite a few differences in this like maintaining little things like your jumpseat access to full benefits. Why are they laying off 450 on May 1 if CEWS is until June 6th (with talk about it ...
