Tee4 Posted September 18, 2014 Report Share Posted September 18, 2014 Here's a question. From how it's been explained to me, the Canadian government doesn't consider pilots to be "working" (for the purpose of hours worked for the year, averaging, etc) unless we are actively flying. So all the time where we are refueling, flight planning, briefing customers, waiting in the field, inspecting aircraft, etc, we are not actually "working". This is why we aren't paid overtime, despite working 14 hour days throughout the year, while maintenance are considered to be working. Perhaps if we were considered to be working for the whole time we are actually working, there might be better conditions? Unless I'm way off the mark and my employer is telling me the wrong thing. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
