Re: Air Canada Pool

Before the recession, there were over 100 "poolies" waiting for the call. They picked the top candidates for their last ground school and the rest got a PFO letter.

You should be happy to have been on the list for the past 2 yrs.

Re: 2 CPAs for the price of ....poverty

Sorry but I disagree about the comparison between AC and Jazz contracts. The similarities end with the creation of 2 companies. I'm too tired to go on! This contract was a plate of sh*t with a 4 oz piece of Fillet Mignon on it. If you felt you would go hungry at Jazz, you'll vote yes to eating the F...

Re: Jazz and a new Air Canada regional airline.

[ IMO, the Classics do the hardest work in the company! True. But they do not generate the revenue for AC to offset the current Jazz overhead. Other operators will submit bids to AC with entry level crew costs and lower employee benefit expense. And AC will accept the lower bid.o. There will be hun...

Re: Jazz and a new Air Canada regional airline.

My thoughts: Yes, it is a downhill slide. However I would not expected anything else. Even Westjet started a regional division with an eye on lowering its increasing costs. Lets look towards what new chapter Ultra-Low Cost Carriers like Canada Jetlines and Jet Naked bring to the table. Terrible ana...

Re: 2 CPAs for the price of ....poverty

I once again say. The only thing to blame for this new contract is the cost pressures placed on Jazz and ALPA by Air Canada. Separate OC or lose all the classics to another airline. Accept the deal and go to Air Canada or face the axe in 2020. That's it that's all. It's a lot simpler than all the c...

Re: 2 CPAs for the price of ....poverty

I'm so tired of hearing that Jazz Pilots are the highest paid regional....Air Canada Pilots fly the same routes as Jazz with similar jets; example YUL-YHZ-YYT. Ill compare again, a Jazz Captain with 17 YOS makes $120/hr vs the lowest paid 1st year Captain making $142/hr. So please stop saying Jazz p...

Re: 2 CPAs for the price of ....poverty

The message I got from the negotiating team was there wouldn't be much of a future for any employee group at Jazz beyond 2020 without the new CPA and pilot CBA. If AC cannot afford to pay what it costs to fly an airplane, then they shouldn't be flying planes! A simple comparison to show the dispari...

Re: 2 CPAs for the price of ....poverty

I also have to admit I am embarrassed to be voting for this TA; however, when the company tells you that we need to rid of the senior pilots because they are over paid, it doesn't paint a pretty picture for me at the top of the payscale in 10 years come renewal. There is no longer a long term career...

Re: 2 CPAs for the price of ....poverty

Don't be short sighted...the addition of Q400s to the fleet is a nice touch, but you and I both know that that Aircraft is mission handicapped, in other words it can not do long sectors like YUL YWG or YOW YYT etc and is capped at FL250. This means that the additional expansion will be in the form ...

Re: New CPA and flowthrough to Air Canada?

I said before I will not discuss the TA until after the ratification vote. There is a lot more to the TA than wages. What I will say is that AC did not want ANY of the 100/300's to stay at JAZZ, the fact that we are keeping the 300's is in itself quite remarkable. If it went the other way there wou...
