  1. Never did the ALPA MEC ever promise such a thing. It's funny how some people try to blur the past Yes, there is a big rift. The corp is not implementing the new agreement to its fullest. They are dragging their feet. I'm just glad that ALPA and our MEC are overlooking things now. The oversight and transparency is a breath of fresh air from the last association.
  2. Very well said. The pilots were not "schooled" by the corp. We gained in areas and didn't in others. All in all once the corp implements the improvements in the new scheduling and duty rules (Kaplan award) the pilots should see more efficient schedules. I believe eve the last agreement by the last association managed about $18 million over the course of the deal. A slight difference in the new deal we just received.
  3. Not sure if it's public. If you know a WS pilot have then read section 1-1.04 regarding scope Does not get much clearer than that. The "proposed contract" put forth by the corp was included at the back of our CA for us to see what the company was trying to do. Information purposes only.
  4. You're incorrect. That proposal was from the corp. The Kaplan award specifically states no WB at swoop.
  5. No WB to swoop as per the arbitrated award from Kaplan.
  6. He has published a portion of the arbitration. The entire CA will be out mid January.
  7. The Minister of Labour made it clear there would be no lockout.
  8. You have no idea of what's going on, do you?
  9. Only 8 days off a month. All while sleeping in their own bed and their own time zone every day.
  10. Was it their only flight? What time zone did they begin their day in? Where are these pilots based? Time zone would probably have played a role in this.
  11. (I define customers as those who pay our wages as opposed to guests who should be entertained at our expense…. But I digress.…) should not be embarrassed in front of others if there is an issue I agree. I also think a guest can be someone who signs the "guest registry" after they pay for their hotel room. I have guests that stay in my house and guests that ride in my plane. But I digress..... Dave
  12. "Who wants to watch Dr. Phil, Oprah and all that garbage?". Well, there is always the NHL playoffs to kill some time on a flight across the Country.
  13. You are right, I wasn't with him at the time of departure. Rest of the circumstances/reasons? Not sure what you mean. There were none. A recip. pilot listed jump. That was about it. Yes, the pilot was aware someone was requesting jump. With NO other jumpseat requests. I did not paint everyone with the same brush. If you read my post you will see that. Mentioning Reno? It does not sensationalize anything.
  14. This is why I was hesitant to post this. Someone will always try to defend the actions of others. The WS pilot flew down on horizon on passes with no issues. And yes, the AC pilot knew he was looking for jump on the way home to YYZ. I also know these passes are not a right but a privilege. It just doesn't seem right that a very small % of people can cause such problems. This guy had witnessed some horrible things and just wanted to get home. Sorry about the second hand info, but he was not going to bring it up on here. It's as close to first hand as you are going to get.
  15. To the Captain of a flight Saturday morning Sept 17, SFO-YYZ, who denied a Westjet pilot a ride in the back of your aircraft, thanks for such a classless act!!!! This pilot had been at the Reno air races the day prior and was witness to the horrible accident. All he wanted to do was get home to his family. By being denied a seat, this pilot had to go through YYC and therefore missed his connection back home. Another night away from his family was required in YYC. All this because of someones dislike for Westjet. I thought this kind of BS was done with, I guess not. And for those wondering, there was lots of space available in the cabin with no other pilots listed standby.
