Re: Aircraft sliding off the runway in YXE?

Slid off before take-off, so presumably this happened at something close to taxi speed? RWY 15/33 is still NOTAM'd closed due to disabled aircraft . It's considered impolite to refer to an aircraft's disability in a way that makes it seem a negative characteristic. The current preferred terminology...

Apparently Ian is a guy who recently moved back to Thunder Bay, where he used to live when he flew MU2's, and now commutes to YYZ.

That and he recently was trashing me on a layover lol.

Re: The Lure of a Combined Bargaining Unit

However, it also indicated that if the plaintiffs proved that the union had acted to sacrifice the jobs of certain members in an attempt to increase the size of the bargaining unit and thereby increase its own strength, a breach of the union's duty of fair representation "would probably be shown", ...

Re: Why does anyone want to work at WestJet?

When I see threads like this all I can think is "welcome to the real world" Why is it that most pilots and likely age reflected as well think a union will magically launch everyone into nirvana. It's a long and slow drawn out process. Depending on economy there might even be concessions at some poi...

A bit old, this reference from the 1982 McGill Law Journal, but I think the quoted passages add some colour to the discussion of the duty that a union owes its members. A duty, I suggest, that ALPA has not achieved in regards to some of its members in the WJ bargaining unit. ALPA_DFR_Superseniority_...

And for Swoop pilots, any ability they had to file a DFR complaint against ALPA as a result of the Kaplan Award announced on September 30, 2018 that saw them lose their status, would have extinguished on December 29, 2018 at midnight.

Careful! ALPA carried out polling and pre-negotiations surveys in 2017/2018, but there was generally no release of the results of these surveys, and no indication that ALPA would not be negotiating a seniority list uniformly ordered by DOH. Although the MEC communicated on December 21, 2018 that the...
