Re: SWOOP OTS Captains punted from left seat...

Check your procedures gentleman. The only time a pilot at WS is required to groom is when they are travelling under the employee standby promise which is the umbrella for the "assume you'll groom." NOWHERE in our COM / FOM etc does it require any grooming. It is also why our MEC has expected exactl...

And btw many people complain about JS but he's only seeking to maximize what he can within the rules currently setup. 100% counter to the narrative that he's the problem.........

Re: SWOOP OTS Captains punted from left seat...

So you are saying it’s ironic for Encore pilots to have an opinion on a thread like this? Are you implying that Encore pilots lowered the bar? Last I checked we had nothing to do with our current pay standards. There are many of us here fighting to get better WAWCON. I believe the majority of Encor...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

How so? Personally, a red pass is required for safety. Anyone can get a job at wj, get their wj id day 1 and hop in a jumpseat. If I can’t show my family where I work, I’m not showing a stranger.

Re: They were going to lock everyone out and shut the doors?

I still find it very hard to believe that CB and/or the bod would "shut down" the airline. A very successful profitable airline shut down and closing shop over this? In my opinion Westjet has played alpa good. But I am also glad to see this come to an end. Everyone can move on and keep the airline(...

Re: They were going to lock everyone out and shut the doors?

I mentioned this when the strike vote happened but a strike vote is not a just a negotiation tool, as was repeated here a few times. It has real and immediate consequences to the company. WestJet was losing millions in bookings under the threat of a strike. Did the pilot group really think that Wes...

Re: Exit Polls Showing Over 90% Strike Mandate Support

Apparently the 787 will be revealed tomorrow...good timing with the pilot picket tomorrow as well. Good timing? It's a great way to build resentment against the pilot group sure. That feeling is growing outside of the FA and pilot ranks. Take that to the bank. Leaders in the company? Not anymore.

Re: WestJet Pilots and Flight Attendants Race to Unionize

Once upon a time the pilots at WestJet were smart people. They certainly haven't lost their influence. The FA's are following their lead.

The wall has been built regardless of the outcome. Us vs them.

Re: WJ Pilot CIRB complaint

WestJet has changed a lot over the years. I'm not saying it's all rainbows and unicorns but these self serving union drives by FA's and pilots is going to push WJ further away from what it was and closer to the stereotypical dysfunctional airline. Sad.
