Re: Will it pass?

Vote closes Jan 31 at 12:00 ET. Expect to hear the result later in the day, certainly after the markets have closed. I am certain you will know the result before you go to bed that night.

Re: Will it pass?

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. The topic h...

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...

Re: Things are brewing in the kitchen.

Didn't they recently bring in legislation that protects employees during contract flipping? Depending on how the legislation is worded, I'd imagine pay protection, seniority based on doh, and everybody gets a position they can hold with their seniority. So worst case for ggn pilots would be bumped ...

Re: 17 year TA?

I highly doubt there is a TA being proposed that would run 17 years, that would be nothing short of insane and should be reason enough to vote it down.

At the very least it is worth a c...

If your objective is to move up the seniority list quickly and secure a left seat, then YUL is likely the best place to go and of all the bases probably the cheapest to live in.

Re: Rumor about %30 pay increase

I doubt the JAZZ MEC will sanction any change unless there is a benefit to the entire group. What would benefit the group would be elimination of the B scale and introduce a 2 year VSP. Extending the DB plan to those on the DC plan is not likely.

If they cared how we look they wouldn't supply MC hammer suit pants (thankfully this is changing now, although maybe a bit too much to the other extreme).
