Re: GGN ALPA and CUPE NEGOTIATION HELL

We all know Ggn management is evil. Adapt or die. They are accountable to shareholders and if they don't give to the employee group.... They will be replaced. That will be a day I happily cheers to. Go forth Ggn pilots, you have all of Alpa behind you. The 61000 members have been where you are at o...

Re: Tired of the Canadian Aviation Industry

This is only 3k above the previous salary for the past five years. The big jump is 1500 TT no jet. For a wide body. It was 4000 TT 1000 Jet. So really just a lowering of requirements. How many CDN air carriers are offering $70k or more to a new-hire FO? As mentioned, cargojet has been doing it for ...

Re: Tired of the Canadian Aviation Industry

Are you current on a type that is in demand? If so, apply early as the recruitment process can take six months or more. When you say "warmer places than Canada" make sure you can tolerate it when it feels like mid 50s C. Budget $15000-17000 USD per kid per year for school. Rent will well exceed you...

We only have 6 Encore FO's coming over at the moment. The others applying either were frozen in their first year at encore or didn't meet the experience requirements. IF that remains the case for September we'll likely have to go OTS again for FO's. Hi tbaylx, Let's say you go OTS in september and ...
