Everyone is hoping for retro pay, but that seems unlikely as none of the other groups got it. Also I am personally hoping for the classification seniority to be eliminated. As well as maybe a 5% raise.
I doubt ALPA will be cross fleeting until the Maintenance information systems are aligned, S-co is on Sceptre Legacy system and still use a paper log book, S-UA is still on the Legacy Unimatic/ AMIS (Aircraft Mant. Info System) system and have an all electronic log book where paper is of VERY minimum use. Sceptre will be advancing the Electronic log book Later this year and should be all electronic by 2014. It makes pilot discrepancies and Deferred Maintenance items and the majority of the Maintenance information visible to both Flight crews and maintenance. so the pilot would have the ability to see what We see and we Know what they see as any Pilot gripes are input and visible to Maintenance prior to flight arriva.
This allows the disposition can be planned in advance and Parts ordered if Needed for greater information to ops. for airplane availability.
In most cases, we in maintenance can tell station Operations whether we will be taking a delay and why.
Both Ops and Dispatch can see the airplane status REAL TIME where we can discuss the situation and plan accordingly. Even up to the possibly needing a plane change before arrival of the inbound flight. .
It also allows us ALL to see trends and repeat problems for every Airplane.
I've not yet met a Captain that did not like the electronic Log Book. But just like anything? Garbage In? garbage out!.
It works because the Crews are required to give us a good Gripe and we'll give them a decent Maintenance Release.
No Unposted log books, every plane has every Gripe or re-check addressed and an issued Maintenance release accomplished Prior to push back.
Or the flight stays until it IS released.
(note: The FAA can also see the log inputs real time as well)
There are VERY few "Ah HA" !! moments on the S-Ua side of the house
