Re: A "NEW" One List?

The one list wasfor flow to be hired at Mainline. No bumping positions up or down. Too expensive for the company, not gonna be an option.

Re: One list

How can there be a one list for two separate companies. Unions are paid to protect their members. A one list does not do that. It's awful how this has all gone down but I just don't see how this could ever survive without at least the common employer status. Not everyone who voted no cared about th...

Re: One list

Sorry to all the Encore folks. Look on the bright side at least you still have a guaranteed job at mainline with flow and the top up pay which helps big time on the first two years. All in all its still not that bad when you think about it from that perspective. Your career progression is still inta...

Re: One list

You didn't read my post close enough. One you organize and unionize everything is RENEGOTIATED. The one list does not exist until union members vote.
I'm sure you can understand now.

Re: One list

I get it you want flow and seniority and top up pay too. Thats great that you want all thoses things. You were able to negotiate all thoses things in your latest contract except seniority. Once you organize all that you once had needed to be negotiated again. Now Mainline has their own contract and ...

Re: Minimum Control Speed

No more like recovering at first sign of a stall which usually occurs at 65kts. It
can be either an audible warning or a buffet.

Re: The Flight Test Pressure mounts.

If you could get your hands on a book called flight test notes, that's what I always used
for Comm and Priv, and found it worked really well in prep for the big day. Being well
prepared makes the flight test just a show for the examiner.

Re: should I take algonquin program (ofc)???

Go check out Ottawa Aviation Services, they are next to OFC. Going over
there you may notice newer and more choice of aircraft. You may even save
yourself 20 grand if you train there. Aviation diploma is virtually useless.
