With the system we have you only need log on a couple times a day for a minute or two to see what is available. Makes life easier and I prefer it to what the flight attendants have. If your a junior pilot in category you might prefer a first come first served system but I don't think the majority would.
Then why do we allow 23k to throw seniority out the window? If I can hold a trip that checks out early in the day, why does a reroute check out at midnight?

Heyas T,

I think there is one more. Anyone know if the above was for above wing or below wing?

Sounds like the AFA is going to press-to-test.

Of course they (AFA) will... they are desperate now. They lost DAL and are about to lose the Airtran FAs... I heard that UAL will go with the CAL union... AFA won't exist in a year probably. It sounds like this was for the under wing group.

Because the company would go right back into bankruptcy if we didn't.

The IAM has two additional unionization efforts underway at Delta. On Nov. 22, votes will be tabulated for about 700 maintenance "stock and stores" employees. On Dec. 7, votes will be tabulated for about 16,000 passenger service agents.
In a memo to employees, Gil West, Delta senior vice president for airport customer service, said the carrier is "ready to begin the process of aligning pay, benefits and work rules, and producing a single seniority list," but must wait to see if the IAM files a complaint about the election procedure with the National Mediation Board.
Following the announcement of the results, Delta shares were up nearly 4%, leading the airline sector. Shares were trading at $13.73, up 52 cents.

As far as SWA please tell me how SWA got the pay rates they have today? Also tell me when they achieved those rates how they compared to the rest of the industry.
They got those rates by thinking WWAD?(What Would ALPA do)

MOU 15 is out

Pay is changing!!

Monthly Pay

A pilot’s pay for a particular month of work has long consisted of an end of month (EOM) payment that is paid on the last business day of that month, and a consolidation payment on the last business day prior to the 16th of the following month. The EOM payment is a fixed amount that is based solely upon the pilot’s years of longevity, and ranges from $1250 to $3000. The following mid-month consolidation payment consists of the pilot’s total earnings for the previous month less the amount of the EOM payment.

By way of contrast, a pre-merger NWA pilot received half of his monthly guarantee (34 hours for regular pilots and 37:30 for reserve pilots) as his EOM payment. This method provided a more even distribution of a pilot’s earnings between the two paychecks, while allowing for the fact that pilots typically accrue different amounts of pay from month to month.

The Company has agreed to change the method by which a pilot’s EOM payment is determined from the current flat amount that is based on a pilot’s longevity to an hourly basis that is paid at the pilot’s pay rate. It is estimated that this change will take approximately six months to implement. In the interim, the flat amount of pay that a pilot receives in his EOM payment will be increased.

Effective January 31, 2011, the EOM payment for a pilot with a given number of years of longevity will increase on average by 60 percent to the amounts shown in the following table:

Years of Longevity

EOM Partial Payment

Less Than 2
$2100.00

2
$2200.00

3
$2200.00

4
$2300.00

5
$2500.00

6
$2800.00

7
$3000.00

8
$3300.00

9
$3800.00

10
$4200.00

11
$4700.00

12 or more
$5000.00

Effective no later than June 30, 2011, a pilot’s EOM payment will consist of one-half of the reserve guarantee (currently 35 hours) at his composite hourly rate as of the last day of the bid period. This will provide an automatic mechanism for a pilot’s EOM payment to adjust with his hourly pay rate.

This is great news. I much prefer 2 balanced checks.

Thanks to those who brought this up at LEC meetings, & thanks to our ALPA guys who got this done.
