Re: Cargo TA

Jimmy Hoffa: Have a look at the Q1 (end of March) MD&A - the fleet plan showed 2 x A330's being added, 3 x A220's and one Rouge A320; next quarter the MD&A fleet plan shows the planned 5 x mainline B767's and 14 EMB's leaving AND 25 Rouge 767's and 6 x A319's leaving. There is simply no den...

Re: Cargo TA

And just so it’s clear, you can have all the cargo available and all the planes available and pay zero dollars for fuel or services, but those airplanes and that cargo doesn’t move unless pilots make it move. We need to remember that. -Jimmy You can have all of the cargo available but there is not ...

Re: Cargo TA

When nothing else changes to the current set of WAWCON and the entire "economically competitive product" relies on nothing more than a 10% savings of Pilot wages, roughly $67/hr as others have explained, then how is this in any way good for that same business person that wishes to stay in...

Re: Cargo TA

I can't speak for Johnny767 but I can answer the question why a permanent change versus a temporary change. While COVID has created an change in the cargo market such that a dedicated cargo division is viable (unlike 5 years ago), the economics of cargo do not change once COVID is over. In fact, I ...

Re: COVID MOA 2

It's not open ended. Even if the MEC doesn't change between now and March, and I'm pretty sure it will... those currently in power won't renew an MOA if there is a clear advantage for AT flying of some sort under the AC name. I dislike many of them on the MEC but even they won't stoop that low. You...

Re: COVID MOA 2

Unlimited expansion of rouge... (transat?) or anything else they decide. Further expansion of code shares. When the company knows they already exceed the scope limits, why are we even thinking of the idea of rouge expansion? I get the initial hesitation but codeshares are long term ventures that li...

Re: CEWS

Wider society isn’t ‘feeling a little pain.’ It’s essentially the same as the provisions in the CBA. Haves vs have nots. I know tons of people still receiving full pay working from home. This outnumbers the people I know who have lost any percentage of income. I will admit my socioeconomic circle i...

Re: CEWS

There is a reason that pilot CBA’s have provisions for reductions, reduction in force, and layoff. It is because it is a (sad) reality of the airline business. We dodged it for 10 years. That was a great run. Unprecedented. But the last ones hired in each hiring cycle have unfortunately always been...

It's time to open the country and get everyone back to work. I'm getting tired of watching the PM repeat the same message day after day with the only new info being "Who won the Trudeau Jackpot Lottery today?". His spending is looking more like vote purchasing than economic stimulus, and ...

Re: WestJet Group Hiring Freeze

I doubt that the Westjet group is going to create 300+ initial training courses on a Q400 as part of their layoff plan regardless of what is in the one list agreement. Defeats the purpose of managing cash flow. It all comes down to math. Without being able to put specifics to numbers... What is the...

Re: Layoffs

That layoff MOU is a bit of a mess. It doesn't cover much about people on training courses, whether or not an IFR renewal is being offered to furlowed folk and the vacation clause is fuzzy. The language isn't clear in a lot of areas, the most glaring of which are the repatriatization of the Rouge f...

Re: First few years pay

Is it true that overtime is paid at the flat hourly rate while under flat pay or is it 1.5 times higher after 85 hours? My buddy in his first year says he doesn't get time-and-a-half for overtime, but I'm skeptical because I've heard otherwise. You are guaranteed 75 hours pay per month as a new hir...

Re: New TA?

Why are the DBs currently underfunded, my guess partly to do with the level of funding prior to a market correction. I get that it puts the risk on the participants but it does fix some of the short comings of DB plans. Could we agree, this is the next best thing to a DB plan, which are all but goi...

Re: New TA?

I think the sarcasm I read from you was actually confused. The number of DB guys who seemingly have zero understanding of the MEPP and speak so highly of the DC plan is exhausting. I thought you inferred that the existing DC plan was excellent (not the MEPP that we gained). I heard so many times fr...
