Default Scope or Scope Clause

Scope or Scope Clauses are provisions in the pilot labor contracts that limit the number and/or seating capacity of regional jets that can be operated by an airline.

This contract language purportedly helps mainline pilots limit the outsourcing of their jobs to smaller, lower cost regional airlines.

Scope defines the boundries or Range of the Contract. It is the opinion of many Pilots that this is the most important section in the contract. It offers a layer of Job protection and encourages management to grow the Airline from within...........not outsource jobs to other lower cost subsidiaries. It could prevent (and hopefully will) US Airlines/ Cargo carriers from outsourceing International flying to Foreign Airlines, i.e saving more American jobs.

It determines (defines) who can fly the routes governed by the contract..............
E.g. It can prevent United pilots from Flying a Northwest Aircraft (just and example) or vice versa.

It can prevent......let's say Skywest (using DELTA Connection ) from operating 737's.

FedEx has a more serious problem................While the Pilots of United, NW, Delta, American, USAirways are concerned with the regional jets infringeing on their territory............we are concerned with ACMI carriers using 747's, MD-11s infringing on ours!!

SCOPE is important..............What good is a Grand retirment Plan and a decent hourly rate................if you aren't the one doing the flying?
