First of all this is not a typical roster, you will do 3 sectors most of the nights and have about 2-3 hours in the hub.
Usually it doesn't make sense to go to an apartment nearby.

If you are not having an apartment in Leipzig, then you will have a part time contract.

I donít know anyone who would go away from the hub on any of those duties. The days are in nice hotels (those are all good stops) and the time in the hub goes by. There are more rest facilities being built.

That said better to walk away now than get here and hate it!

HI

Got today a mail from HR about the T and C. So basically if you have to commute more than 4h you get a 10/12 roster and pay. BUT ad hoc roster ( no block roster)!!!

How many days off you get after the days on?
For a full timer how many days on you have a month?

This is pretty much what EAM and I have been saying. 10/12 is 83%. Ad hoc roster is another phrase for flexible and random and per EAM the block roster may come later. There may be times of long blocks and short breaks but the total days free of duty are contractual and they do achieve it.

To try to nail this down. A full timer has 162 days pa free of duty which is 42 days leave and 120 days off. This is contractual, so average 10 pm plus leave. 10/12 you lose 7 days leave so 35 leave. Gain 60 part time. Days off is 10pm for 10 months is 100. End up with 35 leave and 160 off spread through the year. This my understanding and I’ve been playing part time games since 2008.

Hope this helps

Tx.

i calculated that in case you have later on a block schedule, the 83% contract would be an equivalent of 8on 6 off.

on your last day, in this case the 8th, you finish late or early?

I reckon you are commuting as well, back to UK? Is it for you doable? Flexible enough? Or does it give you a headache?
In case of commuting i guess one is using the last off day to come to base. (So 1 day less off)

Do you have a flat as well or you just stay in a hotel in LEJ?

A very constructive thread here! (Y)

There is no 8/6 roster. I think EAM is right on this that a block roster 9/5 would then attract a full time roster - ask at interview.

Iím EMA based so drive 1 hour at start and finish of work blocks

Whatís DHL Air UKís take on a (no-deal) brexit? I would not like to join now to find out they are not allowed to run a LEJ-CIA in a few months time on a G-reg. Let alone being paid in GBP whilst living on the continent. Have been out of DHL for a few years now but I do wonder what management has to say...

(Some of) The airplanes can ofcourse move to D or EI reg. But how about the crews?

Yes, we can see that. You can be paid in Euros at a fixed rate since September last year and if you want to know the plans about post Brexit, quite easy.....

..... ask someone at the UK parliament what their idea about Brexit is.

The management is very optimistic that we will continue like it is for at least 1 year and by then we should have an idea on how the future between EU and the UK will be and what the necessary steps are.
