The report from UK Reuters about EASA conducting an investigation into zero-hour contracts & safety aspects is nonsense. If pilots allow that to be the remit they have shot themselves in the foot. EASA will not find any correlation between the two. The zero-hour construction is one issue; the so-called self-employed is completely another. One might have safety issues, doubtful, the other is a legal question of true status. The two issues are not apples & apples. The priority is to sort out the self-employed issue. Once that is done the zero-hour issue will be swept up as well. ECA needs to change the focus of EASA and not allow AEA to control the target of the investigation. They know the answer before the process and then can claim they've done due diligence and proved all is OK.
