Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

??? If you mean accepting a lower pay for the same aircraft in the fleet, ACPA did for Rouge. No, as in decline flying because wages offered were lower. ACPA did not give up Rouge flying because it was less. ACPA pilots fly rouge aircraft. Ok, are you saying WestJet never offered Swoop flying to it...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

Glad you’ve seen the sight. You want harmony in the workplace - start with some acceptance of your role in this fiasco and drop the innocent bystander routine. Don’t have a bone in this fight? You’re wrong. Let’s get something clear bro - your management is my management. When you wrap your head aro...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

Tbaylx,

As a member in good standing with the Union you'll have access to the ALPA/WJA private forum. It is governed by strict terms of use and there isn't any anonymity. Plenty of good reading in there on the topic. Enjoy the reading.

Cheers.

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

Tbaylx, Since you're likely going to be around for awhile then let me acquaint you with the doublespeak that comes from the top. "Nope, the only thing they’ve said is that they won’t negotiate with one group at the expense of the other..." That is precisely what they have done at the expense of our ...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

Tbaylx acknowledges there was an unresolved dispute for a claim on Swoop flying and the company's attempt to bypass a labour group was path clear of conscience into shiny (slightly used WestJet) pink jets - got it. At least you're being honest T. Hey eyebrow737 - this is the guy whom you feel the ne...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

Tbaylx, Disagree with what exactly? I have yet to read a single cohesive argument from you. Do you disagree with the labour minister? Do you disagree that you understood the scope of this issue before taking the job? Slow day for me which is why I’m all over this today. Case of wine to anyone that c...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

Anything else Tbaylx? Feel free to correct or fill in any relevant gaps in any of my recent posts. Believe me I would much prefer a world where all pilots employed by the WestJet parent company may have liberal access to my jump seat without prejudice. I'm all ears and happy to test my opinion if yo...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

Eyebrow is on an altruistic mission to defend the helpless innocent Swoopsters from “bullies” like me. Therefore pilots like Tbaylx should be granted access to my jump seat because I have no justifiable reason otherwise. My opinion aside shall we review the opinions of others. Tbaylx asserts he has ...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

Eyebrow, I'll not make any judgements of your character and please don't bother trying to pigeon hole mine. For your consideration - there is a possibility you are filling a vacuum of information with an emotional reaction and personal bias. I have a hard time believing that anybody in this day and ...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

I don’t believe there is any correlation between a red pass and safety. A red pass is a confirmation of identity. The holder of the pass matches the fingerprints and that person’s job grants certain access. Take a look around an airport - a red pass isn’t difficult to obtain. I do however play the r...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

My grudge is with the company for obvious reasons. As far as the Swoop guys are considered and I've already tried debating with the leader of the pack around here. No point in beating that dead horse anymore for obvious reasons. I also have a personal policy about wasting energy on people with close...

Wait until Tincan wants my jump seat from YHZ to YYC.

He’ll have a much lighter tone methinks.

Re: Time to Stand Firm

flyinhigh,

Let's be clear. WestJet pilots are not taking anything from anyone. They are retaining flying that we do already.

You are correct that we will have a spot for the successful OTS Swoop pilots that pass screening. The rejects will have to go back from whence they came.

Weedpro, My dad used to drink a lot - there were a few crazy consequences with that. That was over 20 years ago. I can hold onto a grudge or regard him for the helluva great dad he turned out to be.
