Re: Jazz Payscale Updated 2019

“It still blows my mind that people don't understand how tax works.“ It is entirely possible that yycjetdriver knows exactly how tax works, however like the YYC chairman he prefers to spew bullish!t to further his own smear campaign of the JAZ MEC. Hell its even possible that yycjetdriver IS the Cha...

Re: Deal or No Deal?

You will have a far better chance of getting hired under the PML contained in the new contract than the current one. Current PFO rate somewhere between 20-50%. New contract will be max 10% PFO. Don’t believe me? Go to a roadshow and/or open house, view the roadshow video when it comes out on the 23r...

Re: Deal or No Deal?

Hey outlaw what’s your plan when Calin tells you to shove your no vote up your ass and proceeds to wind Jazz down to 2025? What about the 1500 pilots and families that the MEC has to look out for? The MEC does not roll the dice with it’s members’ careers. Maybe if you are financially secure or don’t...

Re: Deal or No Deal?

This is kind of like a pay it forward type of thing. Do onto others as you’d have done onto you etc. The Jaz MEC is trying to set a standard of respect for fellow Alpa pilots at the Express brand who are(through no fault of their own) aboard a sinking ship. To my fellow Jazz pilots, if Jazz fell on ...

Re: Are we entering another recession?

The only mitigating factor this time is the retirements that will sustain pilot hiring even if every airline in Canada were to completely stop growing due to a recession

Adamus is the current President of Alpa’s Canada Board. As such he represents the interests of the 5500 pilots across the 12 Alpa airlines in Canada. Some of these airlines fly smaller aircraft than Jazz and some fly larger. Some have unique challenges flying in remote northern operations. Acpa and ...

Re: Pass fees

Ok you must not be a commuter and/or rarely use your passes. Otherwise you would be feeling the pinch of pass travel being used as a revenue generating machine by mothercorp.
Passes at WestJet, Transat and virtually all US carriers are a fraction of what they are in Canada

+1 Stay away from Sky Regional. Things are really bad right now. The 10 yr CPA extension is such a joke. If a company was good, 13 captain's wouldn't quit in one week.
Just curious what you mean by the 10 year CPA extension being a “joke”. I would have thought that would be good news?

Re: Rumor about %30 pay increase

I have flown with several pilots now who have been pFO'd on PML 2.0 and a couple who were similarly rejected on PML1.0. All have been excellent people and excellent pilots some even with degrees. Meanwhile I have watched some absolute douchebags get hired by AC. It makes for a very quiet cockpit and...

I didn't realize that AC did so much Cargo lift in the first place, but Obviously they were doing enough to be a divisive let in your collective agreement. As far a strengthening Article 1, does that refer to scope? Were there any changes to the long term plans for the 25 remaining E190?
