Re: MOA2

but you'll be eliminating the bump-down language that was a sticking point with the PTA in the first place. You'll prevent anyone who hasn't officially moved to Encore from bumping, resulting in their layoffs, and allow the company to recall 100% of Encore pilots without bringing back a single West...

Re: #Swoopprez Out!

As long as there is cargo to move around the globe I'd rather think the 737 will take the hit. Definitely sounds like a good time to be at Encore. Good time to be at Encore? How so? Yea... How so? Because unless you are within the first half of people that got hire at Westjet, you'll probably end u...

It's the international growth (787's) of WJ that's probably going to take a hit for a couple of years. The low cost part is probably going to see good growth figures.

Re: WestJet Group Hiring Freeze

They can cut pretty much 10-15% of bottom of the list with no immediate training required because the majority are FO. And since they will probably be cutting routes and lower the number of flights for let say the yyz-yul turn and probably others « business routes » nobody will see any difference. O...

Re: WestJet Group Hiring Freeze

AC had $5.889b in cash, cash equivalents and short term investments at Dec 31 2019. At an average run rate of $47.893m a day, that's 123 days of cash available. WS had an average run rate of $13m a day with cash of about $1.6b, or coincidentally, 123 days of cash available. Both may have credit fac...

AKA temporary part time job.
I guess more people could get through this situation with a part time schedule than being laid off.

Yes but it will most likely be a 3-6 months in right seat so you will have an initial course unless you already have a Q400 PPC.

Re: 2020 Hiring

Yes, would be nice to have everything indexed. Onex - doesnt care. Its obvious. They have communicated zero to us. Westjet mgmt still runs the show and following the strategic plan for WB growth. Well, I guess if they want to grow and become the so wanted Global Airline they will need to retain pil...

Re: 2020 Hiring

I understand your POV, but a couple of your statements are false. There is incentive- REIP $14,400/year for 2 years if you flow to Westjet. Also - you accrue senirorty on the list, not YOS, but senoeiry ahead of any OTS hires. If you work at Jazz those two incentives dont exist. Also- the union is ...

Today one GS started.
You can expect one GS every 2 weeks indefinitely.
They wil give you around 5-6 weeks notice either to be pooled or directly offered a GS.

Re: Hiring process - next steps

The way they use the pool is different from jazz. Once the pool is full they will remove the ad and give Gs to the people waiting. As soon as the pool is empty or they gave everyone a date they will open another ad for the next pool. This is why when you are pooled it is written : “pooled for the ne...

Re: One List

So what do you propose? There’s going to be 2 class a month for Encore beginning January, I think they are hiring as much as they can. Maybe the best way to address this would be to close Encore and merge the pilots to mainline, with a common FO pay and a 20% raise for Q captain. What would be the c...

Re: 2020 Hiring

Nice to know, thank you for the heads up.
Do you have any numbers for Encore ? Hire expectation, transfer from YYZ to YYC, upgrade time and flow for 2020?

Again thank you for taking the time!

Re: One List
