First post. Whut up?


Does anyone have any info on why the company is being allowed to break the current contract by having 14 red arrow days for March?

This is absurd!

Do they apply time-and-a-half pay for picking up on one of those days?

I agree. This is total, complete bull********************. I've been trying to trade trips for a week with no success.

Wait til the summer schedule kicks in. What a wonderful time to be a reserve.

By looking at the reserve list, it looks like quite a few will be in rgt or doing pc's in March.

I know the mec is aware of the situation, yet we haven't heard anything yet. I would be happy if they would demand a voucher or two for a paid day off if the company continues this mess. And with that many reserves in training, it will most likely be difficult to fix the problem.

Where does it say in the contract that the company can't have that many red arrow days?

First, I am not sure that they have to let you "SWAP."

Next, you are the Union. If your claim has merit, have YOU filed a grievance? Didn't think so!

In the time you spent to post on F.I., you could have filled out and filed a grievance--online. Supposedly, it is now electronic, so you could take the same amount of time and seek a remedy for YOUR complaint!

The real story is that the Union(YOU) is not turning a blind eye, but the Union(YOU) would rather complain where nothing is going to happen intead of taking action that MAY resolve the issue.

Or like most, are you waiting for someone else to solve your problems?

From what I have been told, the red arrow days are placed there until the conversion process has taken place and the reserve lines are built and assigned. That explains why they were reduced.

In addition, according to S.H. and a scheduler, after the furlough, alot of pilots are in training which has created a temporary shortage in some positions. It should be better next month(sounds lame but the truth.)

The CR2 F.O.'s are probably affected the most.
