Re: Westjet Mainline FO ad.

You could be right, but that would be in contravention of the CBA (draft): 3-1. PILOT SENIORITY LIST 3-1.01. The Company shall maintain an updated Pilot Seniority List (PSL). The PSL shall be published quarterly (Jan 1, Apr 1, Jul 1, Oct 1) with a copy to the Association. The PSL shall be posted el...

Re: Manitoba Govt Air Services to be Privatised

It does make for interesting speculation...does the contract go to EIC cos of the ties between Filmon and the current government? Aboriginal money/interest would make great political optics, and going with the existing Babcock group could make sense given their presence in aeromedical operations wor...

I believe ALPA gets the sign-up instructions tonight to review, approve and distribute. I’ll hold no envy for Jazz HR next week, it will be a shit show. Maybe you ha...

Re: TA Passed.

The seniority system needs to be overhauled so that something akin to date of ATPL or something like that be recognize. It will have the side-benefit of having younger/less experience pilots "choosing" non-705 gigs where they would build experience knowing that if they joined the 705 too early, the...

I don't have a dog in this fight, but I tend to agree with BOTL. Give the guys/gals pay protection, perhaps, until they are back to where they were, but seniority? I don't think so.

Re: Are we entering another recession?

Falling house prices might not necessarily be a bad thing in over heated markets like the GTA and Vancouver. Can't speak for Toronto, but for those of us with an 'average' income in the Lower Mainland, prices will have to drop ~40% to bring them back to 'affordable' - and that's a huge kick to the ...
