Re: TC Medical Processing Times

Curious to know if anyone has any insight in how long it is taking TC to process medicals. Prior to Covid there was a significant backlog of files to review. At present if one has had their medical suspended and is ready to return, how long is the wait? My medical was suspended in November 2019. Th...

Re: Porter Airlines shifts restart of flights date to June 29

October 31st now. Starting to wonder if any airlines or airports are going to make it through this without CCAA. Canadian Governments need to start opening up all interprovincial travel and selected international safe travel corridors if they aren't going to provide any sort of airline aid like the...

Re: Best guess when recalls could happen

Agreed. If you have an offer in hand take it. At minimum I think lay offs are at going to be 2 years and depending on how things are restructured you never know it could be longer for some.

Re: Duty of Fair Representation (DFR)

I am no lawyer either however here is a definition of DFR from federal labour law: https://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/L-2/page-9.html. Notice it says “employees”. Is a furloughed pilot still an employee? In any case, it’s a suggestion that might be worth pursuing. Once furloughed you are no l...

Re: Equipment bid

I don't think there are any indications of any pilot recalls in the short term. When you consider the vast majority of those 50% remaining are not being utilized that is an indication that if things don't change there will be more to come. The JAZ MEC priority has been to keep the CEWS program in pl...

What were the hour requirements to go to Jazz or Porter 10 years ago? Anyone remember?
15 Years ago you needed anywhere between 3500 and 5000 hours.

Re: Best guess when recalls could happen

Take the job if you have an offer. Recall would be at least 18 to 24 months in my opinion. Close to 800 surplus at AC looking out towards the next 24 months. CR figures along with IATA at least 3 years to recover. Attrition at Jazz is now through retirements and those are not in huge numbers.

Search for whatever collective agreement you would like. Whatever you see today may not be representative of what you may end up with in a few years.

Re: As a passenger, what happens if your Canadian airline goes broke?

Make sure you have purchased the ticket(s) with a credit card. Keep record of all transactions. Should the carrier go broke before you have commenced travel, you can file a claim with your credit card company for the "undelivered purchase". You can check what happened when Canada 3000 went...

Re: Who's gotten a lay off?

Any word on what's happening with Jazz? Lay offs certain to happen at Jazz. Once AC decides what they need but given what has already been announced. I would say all transborder flying that Jazz does on behalf of AC is gone. As AC is cutting back on domestic requirements there will likewise be a re...

I suspect this deal will pass but unlike previous TA votes it is not going to be a slam dunk. There has been in my opinion a sense of urgency in getting the message out, especially to the "B Scale" (or as our MEC prefers to say, post 2015) pilots about the consequences of not voting yes. T...

Re: 17 year TA?

There is no rush... we have an existing agreement to 2025. True this deal would provide immediate short term improvement. The B scale is effectively bridged at 6 years... so if the intent is to maintain Jazz as a revolving door portal to AC, then compensation will always be low. The problem I have w...
