Encore Pilots Have Numbers to Unionize

Recommended Posts

All the moves I outlined were in a unionized company, not sure what the change to a union will accomplish , when it comes to moves etc., other than to establish a Seniority ranking and of course the ability to bid away from a move.

Saretsky, has a even bigger problem then a union, WestJet pilots are starting to vote with their feet.  AC has hired at least 10 WJ pilots in the last month and a half,  5 on the last course alone.  At that rate of a attrition, how long before Saretsky cries UNCLE.  Air Canada is hiring big time, between retirements and growth, anyone hired in the next year are going to be in command seats within three to five years.  That's not recruiting BS, that's facts!  With the recent internal statement that they are done with the PML for the time being, where does one recruit pilots.  If the last October PIT course are any indication,. WJ better improve things and quick, or they may find themselves in a RYAN Air situation by late winter early spring.

Not sure where you get your information from but only two pilots have left WJ this year to go to AC,  out of over 1500 pilots, or are you talking about Encore?

Not true.  I just looked through the bios for the 2 AC newhire courses in October.  There were 5 WJ mainline pilots and another 4 from Encore.  That was just for October.
