Have a friend in rostering and i wanted to checkout what you said

This is their reply

Bit short on facts are we?

Crap rosters,??? 15 pilots have worked over 800 hrs in the last 12 months out of 500, most have done 650-700, Pilots threatened strike action if the company didnt bring in a computer system, request driven system, They Union put all the yellow book rules into the system so it stops Crew getting what they want maybe you feel you should have 20 days off a period?, Now the Union want a different system,5/3 5/3 with 20 privileged days a year ( those are extra), Is this the 4th different method in 6 years? Yes terrible Company with terrible T/C 700 hrs a year 21% into my pension retire with 450k and 130k pension as some have just done, Terrible life


Based on all of that, i will ignore the selfserving rumours on here and apply when it opens, currently work 850+ and am happy to do it, keeps food on the table
