My questions relate to what will occur on the 1st July and I note your negotiators are not back to the table until July (at the earliest). What may or may not be in your final agreement is fun to speculate, but irrelevant to what may appear on the next YVR (and SYD) based rosters, published on the 15th June.
You stated that it is against your COS to PX on the Freighter. That is the also the position of the Exco and it would appear, by implication, to be the position of the company. Therefore, this becomes a matter of COS enforcement, not change. In this light, why has the company yet to determine a policy for the Canadians and Aussies?
Could it be that the company is waiting to tally up the numbers of pilots that consent to PX on the Freighter, and if numbers are insufficient to publish a roster, particularly the DAC-HAN-HKG trip, they will utilize the YVR and SYD based pilots on such trips. This rather distasteful action will be shrouded in phrases such as "on-shoring" and " maintainance of accepted practice".
So the question to you, or more specifically all of your 747 colleagues, should this occur, what are you going to do? Will you all fly your rosters to "curry favour" with your employers in the hope of rewards at the negotiating table?
Perhaps these are not questions for this forum, but they are certainly questions that need to put to Nick B. well before the 15th June!!
