Re: ATPL Application process tips

So I've send my application and paid the fees on april 21st. Got my ATPL on June 11th. Everything has been done in PDF format, I've never sent any paper at all and never walked in a TC office. How many pages of your log book did you have to send in? Last I heard you send in everything. I've sent my...

Re: Encore Recalls

So everyone could potentially bid all positions?

Seems lot of people would choose mainline rather that Encore, meaning all 737 OTS that got in since 2018-ish would now be at Encore ?

Well, you can directly ask you Alpa Rep.

Re: WS/WO Layoff Mitigation Agreement

The program ends on August 29th.
But it has been under-utilized. So if the government can extend it it would be a huge relief to those still waiting to be recalled

Re: CEWS

Do you think the guy getting reduced 320 CA to 737 FO at 55 hours isn't taking a big pay cut? More like 50+%? I am talking about those 10 to 15% Top Captain. Everyone is taking big hits. Everyone has obligations. Are you sure that guy has been earning 200K for the last 10 years? I am still talking ...

Re: CEWS

We all got into this knowing the score. We cannot allow the WAGCON to permanently erode to temporarily save junior jobs. We already have a 30% pay cut due to our hours cut saving hundreds of jobs. Eventually we have to worry about the quality of the remaining jobs. I’m sure you know the difference ...

Re: CEWS

As far as I know-Yes. I’m on the Surplus list. I mean CEWS would be nice and all, but I understand AC’s point of view. I thought Management was just playing hard ball with the Government. Only a couple days left before they have to give us our notice... I wish they would hurry up and do it already....

Re: Will Westjet survive?

WestJet (in its current form) will not survive. WestJet is faced with a massive payout to those who are set to be moved from LOA to layoff in September. A group layoff (50 or more) entitles those being laid off with 16 weeks notice or payment in lieu. The first batch (about 5000) will be laid off S...
