  1. https://www.canada.ca/en/services/jobs/workplace/federal-labour-standards/filing-complaint.html This will cost you nothing and is not much effort. I know a person that filed a claim and got what was owed. Might take a while. Just make sure it is federal and not provincial, as we are federally regulated. Good luck, and get what you are owed. We spend enough time away from family and friends to not get compensated for our time. A good company won’t care if you made a claim against your last employer. If they do, you probably don’t want to work for them.

  2. If you worked for it, then you are owed it. Remember, for every dime you make for the company, the boss makes a dollar. Your time, effort and labour is not a charity for a profit-making entity. If they refuse to give what is legally, but above all, ethically owed, don't be afraid to approach a labour lawyer, even on a pro-bono basis. If you are treated disrespectfully, don't be afraid to burn a bridge, and educate others about their ways, so as others don't cross a charred bridge. It is based on principle and morality. Don't think it will hinder your future chances of employment. Think of it a

  3. I remember a loooooong time back...a fella got stiffed by his boss, so he left. Two days later, the boss phones and asks "where is my logbook"? Fella says "I have no idea... but I'm guessing it is probably sitting right beside a pile of cash". Next day, fella got paid... and two days after that Greyhound found the logbook. P.F.M.

  4. Employers that don’t pay can also find themselves with a reputation. The person I know that made a claim was asked to come back a few years later. That employer has a poor reputation and hard time finding employees. If you make a claim, you don’t get paid what was not owed to you. If the employer can’t figure out the federal labour code and the exceptions applicable to our industry, that is their own fault. If a new employer will not hire you because you made a claim, then you did yourself a favor. Most owners, CP’s, and ops managers already know the reputation

  7. Disagree.... I know a lot of @$$ holes (myself included 😆) that keep finding work because grudge or not, when the boss needs a pilot in the seat? All sins are forgiven. I have seen this for over 30 years.

  9. I'm writing a history presentation for the upcoming Vertical Flight Society (www.vtol.org) Forum 78 in May 2022 on the early history of Aerospatiale (Sud Aviation) and MBB Helicopters in North America and would like to interview helicopter industry pioneers who can help with my research. If you have first hand knowledge as a OEM employee, salesman, pilot, aircraft maintenance engineer, MRO, instructor, regulator, operator, owner, customer etc., please contact me at kennethswartz "at" me.com Here is an overview of the story I'm trying to research over the next two months.

  10. I remember Dave very well, when he was the engineer for Northern Helicopters in Norman Wells and Gerry Nel was the pilot. That would have been the late 60s or very early 70s.I was the base engineer for Okanagan and Jan Rustad was the base pilot. Oh what fun we had with Ron Jackson of Alpine and all the crews that used to pass through going up or down the river. The greatest gang of people I have ever worked with. Gerry

  12. Operators know when less and less ppl apply and pilots know when they never get any callbacks 😂

  13. The operators will never know who doesn’t apply because of their reputation and the pilots will never know what jobs they apply for and don’t get because of their reputation….

  14. Sounds like the cop at a highway accident...nothing to see here ...move along.. been the same forever and probably will be forever...when you have been around for awhile you start counting the outfits that you might work for...used to be about two handfulls...10...now...probably down to one hand.

  16. Open, looking at the diagram with the red marks, to me it looks like an error in the last 2 gears, #13 at the bottom of the figure 8 belt should be and looks to be counterclockwise so #14 should be clockwise and # 15 counter clockwise causing it to open.

  19. I failed to quote the person I intended so it was misinterpreted. Obviously, you don’t generally work on helicopters while they’re still flying. Although, I’ve need pilots take off with an engineer on the skids on two separate occasions. Might need a bit more pay for that kind of dedication.

  20. The above posts say it all, DND has no oversight by the Canadian Taxpayers in any way. Parliament is supposed to have oversight over DND on behalf of the taxpayer, HA, HA. I personally call our supposed representatives (MPs) The Blame Club. DND is allocated a budget and then all the chiefs of staff get together and figure out who gets what to spend and to whom. Normally a Procurement is sent to the procurement department with a Scope of Work, that is usually wrong and is followed by numerous amendments. Once the type of requirement is identified and an RFP is issued, to repla

  22. OK... that's it.... I think we have reached the usefulness of this thread and I am closing it... if admin, who is higher on the chain than me want's to re-open it, have at it... but as far as I am concerned, we're done... let's expend the same energy in supporting the family of our brother from Black Tusk... That's way more important...

  23. I know the 99% isnt the true number, but thats not what I'm going to query you about. Why do you think it is such a favorable number? why do you think "99%" survive? do you think that any of the steps taken to this date have improved or maintained the survivability? where do you think the world would be if this virus was left to itself with no attempt to slow it down? Should we try that? do you think that's a good idea? there's many steps and variables....please feel free to open your mind to them.

  24. Hi GrayHorizons, I’m sorry to hear about your mother. I hope she sees the other side of cancer as a survivor. I agree with everything in your post but I would add one thing. Should your mother require a hospital stay(god forbid) I would hope that everyone would do their civic duty to get vaccinated. That way, your mother, along with all the other people unfortunate enough to have to use our health case system, have a bed and staff to help her. We are a community, we should be thinking of our neighbours. This pandemic has shown me how selfish and broken we all are. I

  25. Asking to be paid for something they require shouldn’t be seen as complaining nor should someone shut up about it if they aren’t being paid for it.
