Employers despise unions. They do not want anything or anyone to interfer

with the way their companies are run.

When union talk begins, it is evidence that dissatisfaction amongst employees has been growing for quite some time. Considering how difficult it can be to get a group of people, especially a group like helicopter pilots, to head in a common direction, the forces promoting unionization are great.

Several companies in the States have recently unionized. Anyone who frequents this site surely also visits Just Helicopters and probably knows how vicious the union debates are. It is only a matter of time before Canadian helicopter pilots are unionized also.

Most pilots have some allegiance to the companies for whom they work. It is to their benefit to promote the company's welfare because that promotes their welfare also. The only other thing that a smart employee will put before his employer's welfare is the welfare of his family. When the family's welfare begins to suffer, trouble brews.

Money is prime component of this, but familys also need their fathers and husbands. Wages and time spent away from home are issues behind union formation.

Pilots and engineers are where the rubber meets the road in the helicopter business and these people demand their fair share of the revenue pie. They also demand to be treated fairly. The fact that unions are forming in this country is evidence that this is not happening.

This is unfortunate because unions mean confrontation. It is too bad that every pilot and engineer in Canada can't raise $10,000 or so and then we could buy Canadian Helicopters. If there are 5000 pilots and engineers that would be fifty million which would at least be a good start.
