Shouldn’t the AOA be getting legal advice for its members?

Shouldn’t the AOA be getting legal advice for its members?

1. COS 18 is silent about pilots and cabin crew having to spend days in quarantine at the behest of the company, even if the mandate to do so comes from the CHP. Since refusing a duty is a contractual breach, it is also incumbent that compensation should be paid for duties the ambit of which exceed the contract between the parties.

2. If pilots are getting infected whilst working for the company and it is demonstrable that the company has not taken sufficient steps to protect its workforce (unmasked cleaners, drivers abroad, whether or not under the control of the company) then there is a breach of the duty of care owed by an employer to his employees.

Two basic propositions. I’m no lawyer but common sense dictates these should be investigated. That’s what a union is for.

So who here believes the AOA be doing this, urgently?

Even the topic of this post is hilarious

If you think that the AOA will come to anyone’s rescue, you seriously haven’t been around for long.

AOA - no way

When we have pilots Volunteering to do closed loop flying doesn't that signal how little support the union has from its members, but hey keep blaming the AOA for all our troubles....

the COS18 IS NOT A CONTRACT... everything is open to company´s interpretation and will. Take it to an attorney, they will concur.

The same legal team that helpfully determined that “sign or be fired 18” WAS NOT coercion? They’re as straight as a banana.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ! O m g that is the stupidest yet funniest thing anyone had ever suggested. And your still playing Bebe what? What for? You either take things into your own hands or continue waiting for others to wipe your arse for you.... In case you haven't noticed no one, and I mean absolutely NO ONE WILL wipe your arse! No managers, no union, in the end it's just you who acts for you.
