Re: Duty of Fair Representation: LOU (One List)

Here is the actual wording of Section 37 of the Canada Labour Code (CLC): Duty of fair representation 37 A trade union or representative of a trade union that is the bargaining agent for a bargaining unit shall not act in a manner that is arbitrary, discriminatory or in bad faith in the representat...

Re: Duty of Fair Representation: LOU (One List)

That's something you hear in North Korea! In reality though, not only that statement does not represent a democratic process, it is not factually or legally correct either. The "fiduciary duty" of ALPA to ALL its members is to represent them equally and fairly and to do them "no harm". Members of W...

Re: Duty of Fair Representation: LOU (One List)

I believe that this OTS pilot had a reasonable expectation that ALPA would follow its established policies. You mean this policy? In cases where one or more parties to the merger has flight deck crew members with grandfather or similar special seniority rights that are limited as to job classificat...

Re: ALPA Archives: 1956 Seniority Policy Origin

John, please explain how I'm wrong. I cited the actual ALPA policies that would apply, not documents from 1956 and 1967 that have been superceded, but you've simply dismissed them. Your only assertion is that I'm in denial. Please tell me how the policy I quoted is not applicable to the argument tha...

Re: ALPA Archives: 1956 Seniority Policy Origin

Hi Diadem , I have never once said that the Merger Policy was the ultimate guide to forming a seniority list. The Merger Policy is not where ALPA's guidance is found regarding seniority list construction. Here are some quotes from you: Well, is it one seniority list, subject to ALPA Merger Policy r...

Re: Duty of Fair Representation: LOU (One List)

One of the BOD policies they must comply with is seniority list construction based on Date of Hire. If you check Kaplan's order of June 2, 2018, you will see that people are added to the WestJet Pilot Seniority List by their Date of Hire at WestJet. ALPA is complying with the policy at WJ.

Re: How's morale with uncertainty of the one list?

I think what you suggest just isn't reasonable. If the issue of seniority was settled prior to the June 8, 2018 order by Kaplan, where Swoop pilots where placed on the WPSL by DOH, and pilots (including those from Encore) hired at WJ subsequent to that date were placed on the WPSL by DOH, then I do...

Re: Bombardier considers move away from Downsview

Rather than just focus on the negatives of Bombardier, on the flip side, what are the implications for Longview/Viking? Are they likely to continue building Q400s, or will they only provide support and let the fleets dwindle away? Is there a chance they'll start making modernized versions of the Cla...

Hey WeedPro, you completely skipped over my post from yesterday. I'd like you to address how WestJet and Swoop can be separate companies with a combined seniority list, but Encore is a separate company that must therefore have a separate seniority list.

I'll bite, WeedPro. I work for a company with ALPA representation, so I'm pretty familiar with their bylaws.
