Re: Gloom & Doom Q2 outlook...are you kidding?

Will be interesting is to see how they "register" these planes....

The ones being repainted are keeping their WJ civil registration which is still owned by "WestJet" after a quick search online and there is no operating certificate under a name of Swoop.

Re: Gloom & Doom Q2 outlook...are you kidding?

If it's a slam dunk then ALPA would have applied for common employer on day 1. The CIRB has clearly ruled before that it's not enough for the two companies to be owned by the same parent to trigger common employer. It's not as black and white as you make it out and a common employer ruling is unlik...

Re: WJ Scab List

What's the point in even conversing with certain aliases anymore when they can't/won't answer direct questions, their position is a rare one (even the most anti-alpa pilots have come around in the past few weeks) and finally, when they display signature traits of Trump level narcissism.

Re: WJPilotFacts.com

Cams memo (last year) also said Swoop would be good for our career growth.

And from the company could mean from a union busting firm. As long as they paid for it, it’s theirs.

A Hint is to start by telling the truth in the weekly reports and you might win a few of us back
Can you back that statement up with proof/facts?

I’d say the company (to date) has been much more dishonest then the mec.

P.S. ALPA member or not, you'll be paying the union dues once a contract is in place. So you are only harming yourself by not being involved in the process in a constructive manner. Rushed or not, we will need to vote on it after.
