Like all things... the devil is in the details. From what I'm hearing there will be huge gains for all Pinnacle and Colgan pilots and minor tweaks and improvements overall for the Mesaba pilots. The biggest gain Mesaba pilots will see is for the jet FOs, who will see their pay scale finally split off from the current blended FO pay rate. All around, it sounds like a very fair deal for all involved. Next up? The seniority list integration of the 3 airlines! Get the popcorn ready. This should be interesting.

I am very eager to see whats in this T/A, but releases on all sides indicate hapiness with the T/A. The one thing I wonder is Air Wisconsin has begun contract negotiations with their ALPA chapter, and the talking points that the company has been using as a negotiating ploy is pilot costs are too much. With everything else going on at ZW, what kind of leverage does this particular T/A give the ZW pilots going forward?

I can't see this joint contract HURTING the ZW pilots. There are a lot of details that need to be compiled and the JNC refining the final language, so as soon as they wrap that up, there will be a summary released. However, I caution, summaries are great, but the actual language is incredibly important. And it's not all about pay, but the many work rules that are in place to support that pay.

Why Air Wisconsin?

Avconsultant - because the issue was raised how this joint contract would affect the ZW pilots.

And to further clarify... A TA has been reached in principle between the joint negotiating committee and the company. It still has to go to the individual airline union representation and then if it passes there, it will go to the pilots for vote. No timeline as of yet announced, but I doubt any pilot will be voting on this until mid January at the earliest.
