Re: Updates on one - list.

Again I’ll say I agree it should have been a yes vote the first time again so I don’t get angry responses. I just think it sets a bad precedent for the MEC to go out and go against a voted in result of its members, regardless what the results of the polling were. My understanding of the polling it ...

Re: Updates on one - list.

Why would an MEC, whose responsibility is to represent its members be able to do this without another vote. At the end of the day there was a vote among its members that resulted in a No and until that is rectified, I believe it would be a huge issue for them to go against the wishes of its members...

Re: Updates on one - list.

From ALPA to mainline pilots : This is the plan going forward: the MEC has approved the renegotiation of the transfer protocol for pilots between the WestJet Group of companies. The MEC has further decided to maintain the status quo by keeping Encore pilots' reserved positions on the WestJet Pilot ...

Re: Encore with under 1000 Hours?

If you have any time... go straight to mainline. Most captains at Encore basically have more hours than ALL the OTS COMBINED! Well one of the recent classes I heard they all had around 4000 hours with some up to 5000+. Let’s use an average on the low end for that group..say 3500 hours. Are you sayi...

Re: Getting a mortgage as a Pilot

Yeah that's the problem I'm coming up against. The annoying thing is that I certainly can afford the repayments, I'm paying more now in rent, it's just that to qualify they use a much higher rate than you actually get once you have the mortgage. Thanks for the info though. Unfortunately that’s the ...

The difference in the type of house I can get based on just the base pay or the base pay plus per diems is huge. I'm struggling to get a mortgage tho...

Here’s the thing about that long post above. The company can put RJ’s at Encore tomorrow. It’s entirely their right as stated in our scope clause. It’s also not up to Encore Pilots to “accept” the aircraft. It would simply happen and you would have to fly them. Just that simple so insinuating that ...

Re: Any chance we just lost our AC flow?

Everyone outside Jazz hope so! Doubtful though.
Dumb enough to sign a 17 year deal, should have to endure all 17 years. Sell out future pilots to chase a carrot, would be deserved if that carrot was to get yanked.
