I can end this once and for all. If the situation was reversed, do you think MDA would let CHQ guys come in with "super-seniority"?
mullet said:Is MDA doing contract flying for CHQ? Is CHQ doing flying for US Airways Group? Are the MDA pilots former US Air folks? Get a clue.
surplus1 said:Who cares, They are separate airlines with separate seniority lists. The fact that CHQ or Republic have a contract with US Air does NOT give any USAir pilot or MDA pilot any right to anything at CHQ or REP and especially not to super seniority
I think it is you who needs to "get a clue".
[No, I don't work for CHQ or REP]
OldManPilot said:That info is true... Plus those at MDA that have now passed on REP will NOT recieve a second chance. The CHQ J4J language does not allow for second chance", Its a take it or leave it deal. Remaining positions at REP will be filled by pilots on the CHQ seniority list!
mullet said:The fact that CHQ and Republic having a contract with US Air does
give any US Air pilot or MDA pilot the right to something at CHQ or REP and gives them super senority. J4J already exists at CHQ. Unfortunately if you fly for US air express nowadays you have to make the deal with the devil. If you still want their flying, you will still have to give up things up. Making comments that we should think about it being the other way around is dumb. It is US AIR group flying now, not REP. Ease up there hardliner. I dont fly for CHQ REP or MDA.
FR8mastr said:I think some are not remembering the 1 big fact here CHQ is not giving up anything! They are GETTING 170's out the ying yang plus they are GETTING 190's as well. All the MDA pilots want is to keep flying the same AC they are in now until and only until they can get back to Airways. Then CHQ will be GETTING the remaing 25 170's as the mda folks evacuate them. As per the LOA91. So as it stands now the pilot as yet to be hired at CHQ will wait for upgrade a year longer. Not too bad as he probably at this point does not even have his commercial ticket yet.

Before the terms of "super senority, butts on the street, I dont owe anybody anything, they made the wrong choice and taking our jobs"
These are the questions you should be asking
1. If a CHQ pilot gets transfered/new hired to the REP certificate, will they have to go through REP indoc and some form of training?
2. Sign new 2 year $15,000 training contract for the new company?
3. If I go to REP do I have to resign my CHQ position?
4. .... can I bid back to CHQ? Seat lock?
5. .... and fail the training, am I able to go back to CHQ?
(Slim to none but still can happen of failing training)
6. .... what is my date of hire? Pay and vacation issues.
You are starting employment at another 121 certificate
7. .... does my accrued vacation go with me to REP?
8. .... does my accrued sick bank go with me?
9. What happens to my DOH for the travel pass?
10. Will I have some type of representation from the Teamsters if I go to REP?
Does REP even have a working agreement, it is a new certificate?
CHQ pilots should have these answers from management.
Just because it is in the CHQ contract, dont assume.
