Re: More WJ layoffs

I don't think WJ is paying for the the Miami training, could be wrong, but I think it's on Boeing's dime. Why is there such a rush to pump approx. 1000 pilots for 13 tails?

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 all...

Re: WS/WO Layoff Mitigation Agreement

ummm, sacrifice? Ya right. There was no choice to made, it was made for everyone. If there was a vote, then maybe. Don't forget some of the most senior also are spouting off how they will take OT while fellow pilots are on the street.

Re: WS/WO Layoff Mitigation Agreement

You have to ask yourself which way was cheaper for the company? The current PSB with 1700 layoffs or this new scheme and new PSB bid. Whichever one was the cheaper option came at the expense of the pilots.

Re: MOA2

The cuts were deep. Did very many Encore guys get to stay? I hope this is short lived and we’re back to normal soon. Good luck everyone and stay safe.

Nothing is for sure until they’re are actually Jet guys in the Dash sim. I think they’re are more games to be played yet.

Re: MOA2

No one is expecting 737 wages in the Dash. Don’t be stupid. If you can’t see changing the playing field so late in the game, and making the conditions so unattractive is not bargaining in good faith, well I can’t debate with you. The unintended consequence of protecting your own will be the death of...

Re: MOA2

This MOA is going to high light unintended consequences. Moving the goal posts at the 11th hour. Fair enough to look out for your own. We’ll see how the majority feels when the dust settles.

tbaylx, you're the plague in aviation. You should be called Tbaylx-19. Ef-u and your lack of current knowledge of what's going on here. You went from flying one ugly plane to an even uglier one.

Re: WestJet Group Hiring Freeze

My understand re: the PTA, is we can bid to Encore, but you won't be recalled to Encore or Swoop. Pretty sure mainline guys are happy with the PTA, and Encore, not so much.
