I was wondering if someone could answer a few questions for me.

Have any of the 53 pilots that were fired been re-hired?
Does it look like they will ever be re-hired?
Have any of the fired found new employment?
How many pilots have been hired since the hiring ban from your union?
How many internal pilots received upgrades as a result of the departure of the 53?

Go to PPRUNE.

Not a pilot, but guess:

- None have been rehired
- Personal opinion, some will be reinstated, but not all
- One has got another job
- Lots hired
- Lots upgraded

I found it interesting when I heard Canadian pilots being interviewed by Cathay Pacific given what was happening there. I am also interested in finding out what has developed recently, and what is expected to happen with pilots at Cathay.

well, the 53 worked out to be a small percentage of the whole pilot workgroup, but a very high percentage of the union committee. I don't know, you work it out!!

I think it is a reasonable assumption to make that because of the union's industrial action, management 'lost confidence' in them - thus it is not surprising that a high percentage of the union committee were among them.

If the Cathay pilots want sympathy, don't come to me. If you book CX and end up on say Air China, you wouldn't be very happy either. As far as I'm concerned, this is a result of the pilots' action and not management.

After all, secondary school teachers in New Zealand are fighting for a pay rise to about NZ$35000 base salary. Don't expect me to feel sorry for pilots who earn considerably more than this as well as fringe benefits.

Sorry, but that's the way it is.  Smile

How will new hires be treated by the union?
In my opinion a large number of them benefited from the 53 leaving and although I don't know for sure, I don't suppose any turned down an upgrade.
