I have a question. I don't know much about unions. As a new hire, if the union decides that a strike is necessary, are you protected? I wondered if you are on "probation" your first year and the mgmt can fire you for any reason.

Thanks for your time and answers.

You are not protected by the company; but, you are FULLY protected by the union. If the company fires you; we will not come back to work until the probationary crewmembers are reinstated and made whole. Period.

Don't worry, by the time we get released by the NMB, you will no longer be on probation...

However, that assumes the NMB would ever release us in the first place (not likely until we've jumped through many many hoops).

However number two (!!), with this very successful strike authorization vote, the moment the company violates "status quo" the Union can call for a variety of actions, up to and including a strike -- okay, so you may not be off probation.

So, clear as mud?!!

I'll be honest, I would love to be through initial and OE before all this goes down. While I hope it all goes for the better I want to have that protection in case.

"Protection" has nothing to do with Initial and IOE. It is based SOLELY on being off probation (ie. One year of employment).

Though I don't work for Atlas I've worked for two companies with union rep. from the Teamsters. To sum it up, the union has always been adamant that, "no one goes back to work, until everyone goes back to work!"

I was at Comair during the strike. Several pilots were fired, at various times, months before the walkout. All returned with the striking pilots once the contract was voted in by the majority.

Hey guys new to the thread, sent my Resume and PAQ in a few days ago. I have 3 friends I know flying for the company that were forwarding my Resume as well to HR...I'm sure the "competitive hiring mins" are all over the place but anyone here a former Regional FO with a little over 2000 total, 1000 hours 121 and get a call?

Also anyone taken the Technical assessment recently able to give a more recent take on the questions?

Thanks!
