Companies Laying off.

Post by flyinhigh »

As there is much discussion ongoing about layoffs and going to be literally couple thousand pilots out of work, I thought it would be good for everyone looking for work to have an easy spot to go and see which companies are conducting layoffs to save the individual time from applying to said company.

Therefore, no discussions just company names.

Only put companies that have announced layoffs, not rumours of layoffs. As it changes obviously they can be added to the list.

I'll start with,

Sunwing,
Porter,
Thunder, and
Wasaya.

If they're about to suspend all flights, how will pilots not be laid off?

Only on this god damn forum would there be an argument after the OP specifically laid out what they were looking to accomplish.

How could they not be laid off? Simple, management decides not to lay them off.

Will they do it later? Who knows.

How about you read the Original Post, and carry on.

Jesus.

Air Transat pilots apparently voted at 97% for a 20% pay reduction for April.

Wondering if that would save All of the pilots there. Anyone working there? As well there was a Groundschool that started early march wonder if the new hires got sent home.

Every pilot at 65h until May and no layoffs.
New hires will continue the GS and get their PPC.

No flight restriction for cargo. We are still permitted to fly U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean. Apparently we are considered an essential service like the trucking industry. So far nearly full schedule except overseas. What will happen when this is all over and if the economy tanks is another good guess.

Sky Regional Airlines just announced voluntary layoffs. I can only assume once the voluntary layoffs are done mandatory layoffs starting from the bottom of seniority up will begin. These layoffs are expected from 90 days and obviously this is an estimate. The source is an internal email. Expect Jazz to follow suit with an update.

Are other EIC operators affected as well? What about their Bearskin operations?

As an AvCanada discussion grows longer:
-the probability of 'entitlement' being mentioned, approaches 1
-one will be accused of using bad airmanship
