Re: Westjet mainline commuting

I dare say that will change pretty quick. As more westjet pilots flood into those positions, that will be a priority. Its also in managements best interest to turn this into a lifestyle job to help attract and retain pilots. Quite honestly I’m not trying to stir the pot. But, do you think it’s poss...

Re: Flair Gone...

Tbaylx -Do you realize that part of your purpose besides and attack on labour under the WS parent company is to quash operations like Flair in their tracks?

Please elaborate on how competition in the ULCC market is good.

Re: The End of the WPDL Confirmed

Some interesting and divergent points of view out there. I have read them all and appreciate the discussion.

No Swabs in my jump-seat.

Re: The End of the WPDL Confirmed

Actually unity was inspired by the chairman of the board through his mandate to screw over every single pilot whether they voted for the union or not. Thank you for bringing almost all of us together Clive. My jump is closed to the original Swoopsters. I’ll take my lumps from Weed Pro and Eyebrow. I...

Re: The End of the WPDL Confirmed

Happy to hear that we'll be getting some experienced guys as new captains. We can use the help and it will make the training and the upgrades much easier if we have guys that know the operation and the 737. Hahahaha.....you are getting FO's that have never held a 705 capt seat as initial upgrades a...

Re: The End of the WPDL Confirmed

Totally uncool/unprofessional that somebody flipped the bird. Emotions get in the way of brains sometimes - with that in mind the reaction is understandable. Hopefully things don't escalate any more. Self-serving choices get in the way of common morals sometimes - with that in mind don't act all sur...

Re: The End of the WPDL Confirmed

Lots of talented people to keep you company Tbaylx. The original OTS pilots who undercut us will be outnumbered by the fall. Your island ...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

Oh well. I accept my fate under arbitration - not much choice there. I support the actions of the MEC thus far. I don’t like how the likes of Tbaylx come across as innocent bystanders and/or positive contributors to life under the WestJet parent company. You want harmony in the workplace Tbaylx??? H...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

A legal lockout requires the same notice a job action does. It sets yet another clock for bargaining. That rule was not respected by the Corp.

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

"That is quite a list, jjj. Nothing of import was sacrificed to get the Swoop flying under one list. Rather, WJ successfully outplayed the union by threatening a lock out, and other measures. That is the reason why the outstanding issues have gone to arbitration." Yes the company outplayed the union...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

On the same note now that the Swoop positions are being offered to Westjet pilots at Swoop terms and conditions, will no one at Westjet will bid them because it's bringing down the industry and undercutting other 737 operators with bottom feeding wages and anyone there more than a year or two is ma...

Re: They were going to lock everyone out and shut the doors?

Say what you will about CB, but having known him since well before WJ was a glint in anyone’s eye, I’ll 100% guarantee he wasn’t blowing smoke. For better or for worse, he completely dominates the board. What he wants, he gets. That is precisely what is wrong with this place. A multi-billion dollar...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

Many Captains have been pissing on that policy for years. So have the CSAs. They’re just happy it gets filled one way or another.
