Talks of a new CBA are highly exaggerated...amendable date is exactly two years away. Negotiations can (per our current CBA) can start 270 days prior to the amendable date.

As for what we want?...why not shoot for the moon?...I am not one to leave a dime or even a penny on the table. It is high time for a very successful company to respect the professionals around the world that move the airplanes.

Sounds good...I agree: Shoot for the moon. I was just wondering if there was anything that seems to be the consensus of what people want improved. I heard that maybe improving the length of trips was one thing you guys were shooting for, but I'm not sure.

Either way I think Atlas seems great. I feel very privileged to have an opportunity.

Go to user preferences in your account and change the number of posts per page for your view. That will make for a lot less scrolling in your searches.

It is too early to concede anything since the actual negotiations are about eighteen months away.

One thing that you're gonna hear from all the guys at Atlas is that our company is all about flexibility...well, that flexibility that the company wants in scheduling our flying lines, and the changes that are generated at a moment's notice, come at a price. So far, Atlas has NOT paid a high enough price (meaning, hourly rates, line/trip/bidding guarantees/protections, retirement, etc etc) for this pilot's liking.

That said, it is a good job...it is fun to have layovers in exotic places (sometimes too exotic, if you know what I mean) with great guys (normally!!).

But the excitement of a 747 type rating, or even a 767 rating, can only last for a few minutes (well, a few months) if you are not valued, you are not appreciated as a professional...and that is what we are after (aren't we all?!!), and one way to show me that you care, is...

Show me the money...this ain't no hobby!!

Good luck.

I have been attempting to update my resume with Atlas, can't tell if I'm having any success. Can someone please tell me how a job seeker can determine if anyone in HR at Atlas is actually viewing what's emailed in? They've never responded to my email enquiries.

Thanks

First and most importantly: days off. How many days off do typically get in between trips? How many days off do you average per month?
There is no "typical". It ranges from 1 day to approximately 60 days (two guys I flew with had, basically, 60 days off in a row last summer, by combining their vacation and their bidding). I, and my original sim partner, have had about 30 days off in a row before. The contract minimum between days off is I think 5. But, a lot of guys, like me, have waived the minimum days off in between, because it can affect what line you are awarded (if you work to a few days from the end of the month, and want a line that starts on the 1st, you will not get it if there are less than 5? days off...I want bidding flexibility, so I waive the days off).

We have 13/14 days off, depending on the length of the month. Sometimes you end up with less days off, sometimes more.

Nothing. There is no communications from the union regarding the new contract. There are elections coming up for new officers.

No way to know. If you're sending it to the email address on the website it should be working. I would be careful not to bug them too much about just applying. Just update every few months, go to job fairs if you can to try to get more recognition.

No. I live in GRB. I have lived in 15 states, mostly in the Midwest.

My wife is Canadian, and my kids have dual citizenship/passports. My wife and kids could actually get Polish citizenship if my wife worked really hard at it, then they my kids would have tri citizenship/3 passports. My older kid goes to school at U. of Toronto and is now a resident of Ontario.

I have lived overseas, but only have the US passport....have never lived in Canada although I have traveled there a lot.

I know of one of our FOs who lives in YYZ...there are probably others living in Canada, but I don't know about them.
