The Pilot Shortage is good news for Atlas pilots.
Negotiations still are not going well with no end in sight. Looks like it will be years before Atlas gets any reasonable contract.

Can the pilots strike?

Seems like the only option now since the company keeps dragging their feet.

No. Under the RLA until the negotiations are declared at an impasse it just drags on. As long as something comes out of the meetings every few months it is considered progress.

747s are crewed with about 25 pilots per airframe...

That's ridiculous. So they can drag this out indefinitely.

Not counting this week, how long have you been in the airline business especially under the RLA? News Flash, the NMB has done this for 40 years.

Republic, Kalitta, and the old Endeavour pilot groups were in negotiations for about 8 years.

Thank our politicians who are pro mgmt and hate unions and labor.

I have 4 years 121 experience. No union though.

Are you a pompous ass always, or just on APC?

If you are going to play the game you gotta know the rules.

Especially at Atlas where the company is suing the pilots for allegedly violating them.

In fact, all the keyboard warriors would do well to familiarize themselves with them, because postings on APC and other boards have been introduced by airline managements in an attempt to show that unions were behaving illegally.

Rumor is that Southern sent home an entire new hire class of 5 because they would have never passed training, so be careful for what you wish for.......
