Why do you guys have more than one union? It's simply not allowed in the USA. You have one bargaining agent who is certified by the government to act on your behalf. That prevents the workgroup from being whipsawed by management.

I don't say that our system is better but I can see the pitfalls in yours. And I say this from the perspective of being under a union that was very detrimental to myself and the other 1400 pilots in my base.

The solution would be for everyone to be in the Transport & General Workers Union.

All aviation workers.

Trouble is they are a bit expensive at 16 a month. Who could afford it?

Or, how about the PPU is an independent UK trade union accredited by the Central Arbitration Committee? Insults do not further the debate now, do they?

Pilots are their own worst enemy! The management have it so easy!!

Can ASLEF take over all pilot negotiations yet? Hiw have they managed such unity over the years?!

Can anyone please tell me if members of the PPU were able to claim HMRC Tax Relief on their membership fees?

Unhappy PPU subs Tax relief.

I was going to suggest you called the PPU but unfortunately ....................... You probably know that already.

PPU does not currently appear (or no longer appears) on the HMRC list of professional bodies for subs tax relief.


I am informed that only the 'insurance element' was allowable, whatever that means.

Good luck.

No TU as an entity has any Power whatsoever.
All TUs gain their negotiating power from their members.

Folk often forget that.
