Initially, the PPU will only be recruiting pilots from Virgin Atlantic Airways but intends to open it's ranks to pilots from other UK based airlines, especially those where there is no current representation or where there is dissatisfaction with the incumbent union or association.
Isn't BALPA and IPA enough? I know that some, rightly or wrongly, see BALPA as a BA union and do not wish to join, so isn't that why the IPA was formed? OK as a Virgin pilots' association but the other two are going to be a bit miffed when the poaching begins.
My God all these Unions - it's enough to send.... Wiggy ...... into a right wing tail spin!
Priceless, absolutely priceless - just because I don't agree with you a lot of the time doesn't make me right of centre.
FWIW I spent time in a previous life at a very left of centre academic institution and saw first hand the havoc caused by some the nasty manipulative behaviour carried out by some of the of the Far Left. I saw some very similar behaviour in a recent dispute.....right, back to reading the Guardian.
Don't bother, it was this purile, inane drivel full of lies and innuendo that got the BASSA forum shut down.
He was an insufferable bore/arrogant ar$e when he was in the company, he just wants to remain so now he's been kicked out. What are we today? Pilot? manager? CEO? All the things you wish you'd been.
Of course there was NEVER fratinisation between the Cabin crew was there? Neither has there ever been fratinisation in the office environment, it's only when it happens between CC and a Pilot it becomes soooooooooo important.
you might even end the evening a more educated person!
What a laugh.
