Well it’s getting near to the busy season why don’t we all just say no when the phone rings and maybe owners will finally realize they aren’t in charge and it’s hard to take jobs with no pilots and engineers. But I’m sure there’s always gonna be that clown that’s a yes man and ruin it for us all. This industry isn’t gonna change unless we all get together and stand beside one another rather than trying to be better than the guy/gal beside you.
I'm almost certain some companies hire Human Resource personnel for the sole purpose of the companies benefit with labour laws. Not for the benefit of the employee.
They know the law, and know the cost risks of a labour dispute claim, and usually know they will lose the fight, but will drag it on as long as possible in the hopes you drown in debt before they do and give up.
There is very little repercussions for them when caught breaking the rules.
No shortage of undervalued drivers in 2019. I lasted 3 days at a large operator that elects not to pay for training in Ontario.
55 hours of online training and a week in the classroom in our industry is expected for free.
The previous 30+ pilots didn't seem too concerned about it.... i guess we'll have to wait for the vietnam vets to retire.
Better conditions at Tim Hortons.....
"Time spent by an employee in training that is required by the employer or by law is counted as work time. For example, where the training is required because the employee is a new employee or where it is required as a condition of continued employment in a position, the training time is considered to be work time."
