Re: ONEX plans

Droptanks, I agree that those pilots that were holding a lot of 18$ shares have a windfall at 31$. However, that may be a fleeting one time event. If Onex, decides to play hardball on salaries, what are the options for WJ pilots? Widebody expansion, which the optimistic are heavily relying on,canno...

Quarterly loss

As reporeted at the CBC.... WestJet Airlines Ltd. reported a rare loss of $20.8 million in the second quarter as it was beset by a labour dispute with its pilots, higher fuel prices and increased competition. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/westjet-losses-2nd-quarter-calgary-labour-dispute-1....

Re: ULP from CUPE

I’m loathe to start another thread on CUPE so I’ll just append this gem here. CUPE, in its collectivist wisdom chose to announce a card count mere days ahead of the signing of an MOA for the FAs that would have improved several areas for them. Now, with the card count in place, and should it be suc...

Re: ULP from CUPE

A common question being asked of the randomly selected FAs is if WJ interfered. The common response is "yes".

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

It looks to me like the pilots accepted the best possible scenario with a very real possibility of the airline being shut down out of spite by CB and his hand-picked board (so I've heard). CB hates listening so.much that he was willing to direct the company to cause great losses to the shareholders ...

They didn't learn. Maybe if they weren't paying millions in legal fees per quarter the profit would be higher.

Re: Strike vote

That is most definitely a threat to use the company's policy against a fellow employee. If John isn't reported then that's on you all. Him and his rubbish threats are going to damage someone else's career. Stop him before he does what he is very capable and likely to do.
