Not that anyone really uses this page anymore, outside the FB group. But for those who don't PBS LOA passed and along with it much needed contract improvements.

I figured someone would post. Glad to see we ratified the PBS agreement today, huge positive reinforcement I would say, 92-percent of pilots who voted were a yes. Nice to lock in the improvements to an already great contract... my favorites:

-4.25 min day for line holders
-Commuter Hotels
-Rainmaker pay software

Was it a unanimous MEC yes vote too? :)

Oddly enough I believe there was at least one dinosaur (maybe two) of the reps (STL based) who voted the trial period and language down prior to it being sent out to the pilot group. Thank goodness common sense and better logic won out. About time some more positive changes happen around here.

4.25 = huge. Best in the industry for 50 seaters. Lots of other good stuff in there as well. Looking forward to putting this behind us and working towards improving the contract between now and in less than a year when section 6 opener is put forth.

So, we are saying that the STL CA rep is out of touch with reality? No! Say it ain't so!

Exciting stuff, prospective pilots are breaking down the doors at the STC right now with resumes raised. There's a line out the door obstructing the food trucks.

92 percent passed. Just goes to show you how out of touch the STL CA rep is from reality....

Anyone care to elaborate on additional improvements?
If not, I'll just wait for aerocrew to update when they get the info.

Thanks!
