Huh? I’m UAL and make 282 an hour on the 737. I believe the 757-200 pays the same but the -300 pays more (as does the 767-300) and the 767-400 even more. Blended rate would be over 300 an hour I’d guess.

Nah, I was referring to our CA rate under 3.5 years sitting local RA. $282 is great, but are you a CA on the 737 under 3.5 years?

Ok. Let me make sure I understand you both. Are you actually saying that you're okay with pay rates for the same equipment that are well below the top industry rates because we have more pilots being paid at those rates? Or because a junior pilot can hold one of the seats paying those rates?

If you had the highest narrowbody pay at the leading edge of pattern bargaining, and everybody else patterned off your contract to exceed your rate (which I believe is what happened with DAL1, SWA1, UPS, DAL2, SWA2, UAL “me too”, and AA 8% “industry standard” raise) is lagging them at the end of that bargaining cycle really something worth being ashamed of?

Even worse, a widebody FO is going to make more than a NB Captain -- especially 777FO and as of late a MD11FO.

I'm sure the company would be glad to pay us $15 more an hour than any other 757 rate if we are willing to give up the pension. Lets dig deeper. Look at the pattern as future contracts were negotiated off of our late 2014 ratified rates.

10 year Capt pay rate

AA- $287
UA- $279
FDX- $265

Now ask how long and at what longevity does one need to be at to hold those rates even pre covid-19 at UA, DL, and AA. As for UPS they went to a "it all pays the same model".

"An operations like theirs [UPS]" ..."much more equally weighted weight body to narrow body"

You don't know what you're talking about and you're trying to justify pay wages below industry standard! An operation that is almost exactly like FedEx's. How is it any different? It isn't.

New flash, FDX has a 30% ratio of NB to total jets and UPS has a 27% ratio. FDX has more NBs by only a 3% difference!

Delta and other airlines had Captains on MD88/90s ($248/hour) with less than two years on property! Yes, pre-COVID19 but that doesn't matter. Nobody compares compensation based on what years of longevity it takes by individual company! I don't know what the most junior 757 CAs were at the legacies but they weren't far off from the 2-year MD88/90 CAs.

Bingo! I couldn't have said it better Adlerdriver. Noworkallplay, are you management? Seriously, you continue to talk down this profession and our worth.

FACT: FedEx's 757 pays below industry standard pay rates and total compensation as compared to our nearest competitor UPS and to DAL UAL AA when profit sharing and cash over the top is included.

That's fine. I never wanted to fly boxes, especially at night. It's not glamorous, and my wife might leave me. But now that I'm about to lose my job for a few months at Legacy Airlines, I need a new job and I'm willing to make some sacrifices now. Why hasn't FedEx called me yet?

You are absolutely correct BoilerUp. Its what will happen again when we negotiate next year (UPS is counting on us I hear in a letter written to UPS pilots by Bob T during the extension vote). I don’t understand how some dont see how pattern bargaining helps the industry as a whole.

Thats absolutely not what I was saying. I was saying the hourly rate is lagging because of pattern bargaining. We had the top of the heap rate. Then others patterned off of it. News flash Pay is not just pay rates.

We will be top of the stack on pay rates and entire compensation again this next contract in 2021. Honestly if you look at total compensation we are in line with everyone on 757 pay currently except maybe UPS since they have 1 pay rate.

You are correct our 757 pay rate is lagging but was top of the heap in 2015. Thats pattern bargaining young fella. If you take total compensation retirement, vacation, etc that gap disappears except compared to UPS since they have 1 pay rate. I honestly hope we get one pay rate next contract. You completely missed the point toolbox. Take a look at everyone’s contract when we TA’d our 2015 CBA then get back to me.

I was saying the same thing as Boiler indicated. Also there were no sub 3.5 year CAs at any of the legacies unless they were management.
