Re: The next PML wave

FWIW, the conditions laid out for Jazz PMA by Air Canada and Jazz are not set in stone.

Air Canada has already changed the hiring process for the Jazz PMA; so to say they must hire a certain number of Jazz pilots is hopeful at best!

Re: The next PML wave

FWIW, we signed our contract with the conditions listed for the PMA. This list was signed by Air Canada. Now a year later, the PMA conditions have changed!

Should ALPA step in? Probably!

Is it the easiest way to get an interview at AC? Absolutely!

Re: Fleet growth 5 new Qs, 5 new 705 within the next two ye

Unfortunately, Jazz is no longer a lifetime career option. This was confirmed from Jazz during the roadshow telling us that our pilots are too expensive to be competitive with other Regionals for AC. I still don't know why the payscale for FOs goes to 15 years (from 12 yrs) and Capt to 20 yrs (from ...

Re: Fleet growth 5 new Qs, 5 new 705 within the next two ye

If the Jazz pilots said NO to the TA, it doesn't mean strike! The TA proposed by ALPA was 90% good. The problem is that the 10% that was shit, wasn't worth voting NO. Lots of carrots dangled in front of the group. Actually, it was more like leverage, or a guilt trip. "If you vote NO, we will lose th...

What does the Captain side look like? It's another "not a B scale" situation. I believe before the new contract you would be paid based on your years of service, now you start at year 1 captain pay once you upgrade even if you've been at Jazz for 10 years. Does that apply to all new upgrades? Or on...

Amazing the kind of growth you can have when you lower 1st year pay to sub-encore level PROC_HDG This isn't where they are saving.

Re: In the Pool.

Adapt or die...that is a good one. We didn't "adopt", because, salaries for 100% of the pre-contract pilots got a 2% pay raise. Only new hires salary was slashed! It will take more then 10 years to lower the salary budget to a point to be competitive! Why wasn't the "New Business Model" that Jazz in...

Re: In the Pool.

The most junior Captain awarded a Captain seat was hired April 2011 and won't be trained until March 2016!

The majority of pilots upgrading now we're hired in 2006.

Still a long wait...and when the PML list is exhausted, riga mortise will set in just as it was before the PML was introduced!

I'm not sure where people are getting the idea of less pay from. I can see shorter days and more days because of it as the downside. If airlines, however, need an extra x% pilots to do the same work, and it's across the board at every airline, then supply/demand has swung in pilots favour. So don't...
