New recruits have following clause in their contract: they have to show a proof of residency (within 1 hour of LUX airport) latest 3 weeks after joining Cargolux.

...so that means no possibility to commute...
too bad! I have just taken my atpl and I was so close to apply...!!

HURZ 22nd Nov 2010 21:32

do you really think this is legal under euopean law.... come on:ugh:
you just tell the big guys that youīll move and have a mailbox during the first year until your trial period is over.... and then.....

Tophat320 24th Nov 2010 07:44

Is that really true? I am speachless about that.
If you are hired now itīs a disadvantage against all the people they are allowed to commute.
If you decide for Cargolux you know that the job wont be easy, long trips and a long time away from your family and now they want you to move within the first three weeks. They want you to leave your whole social environment and to take your family with you, my wife have to quit her really good job and what if you fail your rating or if they fire you after your one year trial?
I canīt believe that, but in this case I think the only way is to remove my application - Cargolux seems not to be the good company I thought!

LBR 24th Nov 2010 12:47

Hmm, doesn't take much to make you speechless...
I could imagine that Cargolux prefers to have its pilots to live close to Luxembourg to prevent the situation where people have a long tiring commute before the start of their duty.
A substantial number of people in Cargolux do commute but I have the impression most of them travel towards Luxembourg the day before their trip and stay in the Ibis or Etappe at walking distance from the office or have a shared apartment in the vicinity.
This way they can start their duty well rested.

LBR 24th Nov 2010 14:10

Never said you will get a proof of residency from a hotel, just explaining what commuters often do.
The other option, sharing an apartment with some colleagues, could give you this proof of residency.
There are some colleagues renting out rooms for this purpose.

Tophat320 24th Nov 2010 14:16

LBR, no problem to start duty well rested - but therefore is no adress neccesary within 1 hour of LUX.
As you already said: You can go to a hotel to sleep, but they donīt want that you guarantee that you are well rested, they want an adress! That means you have to move, and thats a negative factor!

rwy24center 24th Nov 2010 16:55

@tophat
you prefer to spread your negativism instead of reading and understanding the comments of HURZ and LBR.
nobody forces you to join clx.
clx is not (good) for everybody.

Tophat320 24th Nov 2010 20:39

RWY24C:
I think it is really negative to move after 3 weeks without any guarantee to pass your rating or that your contract is continued after your trial.
I think thatīs a real big problem.
And if other have the right to commute it is not right to initiate a two-class society!

Some CV Pilots held a protest gathering at the Airport yesterday. Apparently 300 have signed a petition claiming the company are putting business before safety. This reported in the local media. Any CV drivers on here like to comment ?

Very fair point!

Just do what most do and what LBR & HURZ also stated: get a crash pad near LUX together with some colleagues to make it affordable and keep the company happy. You need something anyway for before and after a long haul flight. After the (excessively long IMHO) one year trial period you can always decide if you really want to move your family to LUX permanently.

Good luck!

Hi girls and boys,
please can anyone confirm that you need to have an eu-passport to work in CV or is there any other way to bypass that (for us non eu)...???:ooh:

It`s a very hot topic at the moment and I don`t think, that anyone of
us likes to post a statement.
Read the lux newspaper for the latest development.

As for the EU passport requirement:
you can hold any passport as long as you have a JAR-FCL licence.

Good evening gentlemen,

may I kindly ask you to confirm you DO NOT need a EU passport or work permit to work in Cargolux. Only a JAR ATPL?

Also if it's possible to check because I would really appreciate
fresh info.

Thank you very much

Have a nice evening

Hello everyone,

I am not 100% sure, but I think you DO need a european passport to work at Cargolux, or at least the right to live and work in Europe unrestricted.

I will try and find out for sure though, and put the answer up on here asap.

Pow-wow

buduci kolega 5th Dec 2010 16:58

Much appreciated.
Please check, if you have relevant authority to ask, is it enough to have a work permit of a EU country, Schengen also.

Regards

Hello again everyone,

I spoke to the Human Resources Department and they said it needs to be a European passport now.
