Also, why does the union really care how the company gets employees as long as they meet FAA mins? They'll be getting dues From them regardless, right?
Because we have to fly with them.

FAA mins are just that. Mins. Is that all the company as a major airline aspires to?

I believe it's more to do with the 1,000's of other pilots that are beyond "qualified" and knocking on the door over and over again....

Not sure that it has to do with 0-1500 hours.

I know at least 8 people that want to work for us... One of them has 737,767 CA time. And he's sub 30... Not one bite. (Keep, he will leave for DAL, UAL, AAL comments) this more has to do with the qualified applicants that's should be hired..

Does the union have the ability deny anyone in the other pathways from being hired on as a pilot?

Not sure but I hope so. This program stinks to high heaven and if you don't think you'll be alienated right off you're kidding yourself. 1500 hour mins are the minimum allowed and like I said before I will not babysit your ass. And I don't mean you as in you but anyone wanting to skip the experience.

Nope, they have zero say in how/who gets hired.

I doubt the union has the ability to stop this. I agree on the smelliness of the program though.
I wonder if the program participants, assuming they are new to aviation have thought of, or are aware of the potential alienation. Hopefully the word will get out and they'll rethink their choice before it's too late.

Well no but newspaper ads and getting out to the public that these pilots will have no experience no instrument skills never been above 5000 ft no jet time, sighting the German wings pilot as an example etc etc etc.....it will be shut down

The experience can be an issue; another can be that this guys could initially accept lower QOL or pay conditions, and because of that look at B6 as a stepping stone instead of trying to make this a final destination. That would effect our pay and QOL.
