I thought this was going to be about a Qantas flight doing an NDB at RAAF Pearce?
Don't mind me...

Take the back pay carrot out of the equation and Iíd say it would have been 90% NO.
There are LOTS of pilots leaving the SH award and a nice chunk of backpay would have been nice. Self interest normally wins.

Backpay will probably stay on the table for future versions of the agreement anyway.

I agree, but it is usually used as ďsign upĒ pressure point for the first round..

True, but the further you get through a training year the less people with a ticket out of SH are still there to vote.
I donít actually think a large portion of guys heading to LH would vote like that but either way itís a shrinking number every bid period.

I would imagine with the consistent number of people going through the training system every bid period there is a similar number of eligible voters who are leaving short haul. Itís not as if they train them all at the start of the training year.

As the yearís training is allocated in 1 hit prior to the start of the training/financial year youíd have a number of pilots who know they are leaving that year and may want the E.A. sorted before they leave.
Every month that goes by the number of pilots who know they are leaving later that year decreases until all have commenced training. The pipeline doesnít get replenished until June the following year.
