I have to agree with WhoFlungDung. Most of the EBA's have resulted in good payrises as well as many improvements in conditions. The Certified Agreement is a very thick book with good reason - every time a manager tried to "screw pilots", it would be negotiated at the next EBA which would normally result in a clause being inserted in the CA to prevent a repeat.

The new team are genuine blokes who will look after the interests of junior pilots (probably more than senior ones because any changes will have the greatest effect on them) and in the case on QLink and Jetstar pilots, they have the freedom and responsibility to determine their own paths but have the industrial expertise (& connections) of AIPA to give them more clout in their negotiations. From what I've heard (& read), this is a lot better than what the AFAP is offering to the QLink & Jetstar pilots.
