I don't know what else to do because I have contacted all my referees and everything seems to be ok but then... Some of my referees told me that they have replied and easyJet has not received the letters!

Then you get the referees to send everything again, but this time tell them to send everything as recorded delivery!

If your referees complain about the recorded delivery cost, you can always offer to reimburse your referees so that they don't lose out financially.

I am LGW based, personally I don't care about the ethics of easyJet as a company. All I care about are (in no particular order)
  • Having fun
  • Liking the people I fly with
  • Getting home to my own bed at night

Incidentally I have been with easyJet at LGW for over 3 years now, still love it now as much as I did when I first joined. What exactly is it that you are not enjoying at this time? - You might find that the thing you don't like is exactly the same with the other airlines out there

Who has abused you blondechick? You asked a question, I have answered your question. You are reading too much into my reply where I have stated that I don't care about the ethics of the company. I have backed up my answer with what I care about.

I have also gone on to ask you what it is you are not liking so that hopefully we can work together to find an answer for you.

But, you have misread my reply! If you actually knew who I was, you would know that I am a caring SCCM at LGW and not someone who bullies crew!

Now we are getting somewhere. You have had some sickness and are getting hastle from the office - I have actually had this out with one of the OPM's a few months ago about how the company handles sickness, and I told that particular OPM exactly what I thought of the companies sickness handling.

Has the company followed the correct procedure with you regarding sickness? i.e. a wellbeing chat followed then by a disciplinary or are you one of the crew who has had a letter from an OPM stating that you are facing a disciplinary hearing which might lead to you being dismissed, when they have not carried out a wellbeing chat?

Also, are you in the union?

Yeah am in the union.

had to offloaded bout 3 weeks ago and am flying sick cuz if i have another period of sickness then am having annother dissapliary meeting. Ive had 2 that have gone back to welbeing chats but how many times can that keep happening and you know what happens if you get a dissapliary on file you cant go for senior for atleast a year which i think is rediculous!

Well you need to get this sorted out ASAP. Is your OPM for your group approachable? If not, you can always speak to one of the others.

You also need to speak to your union rep, you have MW and LE as reps who will be assisting you in the event of a disciplinary, so it might be worth having a chat with them next time they are in.

You say you are flying whilst sick now - is the sickness a cold or something more than that? Have you been to see your doctor? If your doctor signs you off for being sick then the company can not touch you. Also if your doctor signs you off as sick, the company doctor can not over rule this (and the OPM's can not question the sick note as they have no medical training whatsoever other than that what we as crew have).

Sickness is the one thing that I think easyJet handles appaulingly, it is about time that Andy Harrison looked into the way that crew are treated when ill and relax the sickness regulations to a humane level!

I am in Group 1 and I have actually found the the Group 1 OPM is someone who will listen when you have a complaint. I believe that he genuinely wants to improve things for crew at LGW.

I am guessing you are Group 2 as you say you go back tomorrow, what are the initials of your OPM, or failing answering that with the initials are they nice or not?

Have all your periods of sickness been in the last 6 months? They only count for 6 months and it is a rolling 6 months. Any wellbeing or disciplinary chats can not refer to things from more than 6 months ago as they are technically off of your record once 6 months has passed.

dont know there second name but b is nice and everything but i just dont like talking to them you know what i mean i had a disaplinary not long ago probally bout 2 months ago. i had sick line and everything for being off 6 days but they still pulled me in i think if you have a sick line from your doctor you shouldnt be pulled in for one! just my thoughts.

Ive probally flown with you!

sorry for earlier

I agree that they should not call you in when you have been signed off by a doctor (well call you in yes, but not give a disciplinary, just purely a chat to make sure you are fit to fly). Perhaps you should say to LE that you feel the company is wrong with the way they handle crew that have been signed off. Maybe the union will take that up with the company and get a better sickness policy.

I agree that the company should come down hard on the crew that take the pi$$ and go sick just so that they can go out for a drink on a Friday or a Saturday night. Also if any crew are regularly off sick on a Wednesday (after crew night) come down on them. But genuinely sick crew should be looked after and not made to feel scared of going sick when they really are not fit to fly.

I think I might know who you are, and if you are who I think you are then yes we have flown several times
