As a starting point, i'd be asking for the same conditions as JQ + back pay.

About an initial 10% rise in base pay, then about a 3% rise for each year in service. Initial A320 Captain base about $220k. Some boosts to day off payments and allowances.

Better than the previous agreement, but not comparable with what's on offer with other carriers at the moment.

Absolute garbage compared to others around. It does however make what NJS recently agreed to an embarrassment to them.

Is it true they want airport standby for the pilots?

Can’t think of a bigger shit-pineapple.

Network pilots will be paid 8% more than NJS A220 pilots for flying an aircraft 25% bigger. Less than JQ for the same aircraft. May not be NJS pilots feeling the embarrassment..

F/O
Dash 8 or equivalent $140k
F100 & E190 $170k
A320 or Equivalent $190k
This is a piss take right? I mean, that's what the pay should be, but that would take pilots with nuts (or female equivalent) taking a stand.

Not yet. I don’t know when the vote is. I’ve been told that airport reserve is what the company wants and that an in-principle agreement has been met with whichever union represents them. Can someone else confirm?

Fantastic. So now make sure you vote it down so you get what YOU want. How the heck could anyone agree to that nonsense?

"Some boost to days off payments"

What is "some"..50 bucks?

Airport reserve? Like presenting at an airport in case someone goes sick at the airport? Princesses. Do your job, negotiate for improvement in return.

Airport reserve? You can't be serious 🤣
Why would anyone agree to that shit? Okay maybe I'd do it if I got 4 hours hard credit plus the additional trip credit if I was called out. A room at the airport that had a couch, kitchen bunk bed etc. Also going to need home transport to and from work.... But I'm guessing that you get none of that.

No it is not a piss take and for any pilot to vote for any less than this is a moron!
It is about time pilots woke up to what other professions and blue collar workers are being paid.
I used to earn $155,000 P/A working 2 weeks on 2 weeks off to operate a drill rig! Yea it requires some training and skill but not to level required of a pilot...

Airport Reserve?
Don't laugh too hard, but apparently VARA do it in Perth for certain FIFO operations.
Anyway, yup, **** that!

I hope you’re not a maggot driver. I wouldn’t sit all day a an airport for less than 10hrs credit (and I’ll bet most would say that’s not enough). Seriously cannot think of anything worse. Not trying to be dramatic here but airport reserve sounds like the absolute worst lifestyle sacrifice you could give up.

4hrs for a reserve at home.
