Re: Air Canada Acquisition of Air Transat Approved by Minister

“I think the Europeans are the last hope now to save the Air Canada pilots.”

Curious what you meant by that ?

Re: Write the MEC

Sorry guys we’re adults, the company negotiated with our union and they brought it to us. That’s how a democracy works. Life is too short to continue down this path of always complaining of everything the company does. I voted no and the majority won ........ simple, I accept the results. Move on bo...

Re: Cargo TA

Just found out that all three members of Pilots for Change that won successfully in the last election, supported this cargo LOU.
No transparency, no backbone, just follow in line.

Their new logo .......“Pilots looking for $ change”

You’re welcome.

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

BTD,

Can you explain how scope will be affected come Oct 01/20 with a positive acceptance of the MOA#2?

Thanks, sometimes people get lost in their emotions and type what they assume might happen at the worst possible time.

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

So we get an increase from 55 to 63 hours as a minimum per month. The fixed rate pilots are paid 75 hours and rightly so, we left them to eat “click ham” for the last six months. I’m almost leaning towards yes just for these guys/gals. No more than the 600 pilots on the street and rescinding the 87 ...

I made some inquiries, seems nobody wants to talk about it to me.
Just with an annoying text, “things are in motion ...don’t stick my nose where it doesn’t belong.”

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

I do remember a few weeks ago in the YYZ crew room a pilot showing my F/O a website regarding change designed by a junior group of frustrated pilots.

I only got “ heresay” so cant comment any further.

Anyone else heard of this?

Re: WestJet Group Hiring Freeze

I’ve heard plans of returning with only 39-737’s and 22-Q400’s. What are the plans for the 787’s and the 767’s? Initially parking or any being returned ?
Good luck to all, hope for a quick return.

With regards to the profit share, I spoke with a union rep who seems to not be up to speed with respect to whether we will be receiving it this April. My wife who’s a FA mentioned she read somewhere that they’ll still receive theirs. On the 737, this might be my one and only time to complete my man ...
