Following on, I have been given a Spanish seasonal base with line training to be conducted somewhere else beforehand.

And finally, yes: MXP can happen for new entrants. One of us got it.

The rest of my cohort I know of got LIS (3), FAO (2), AGP (1), ALC (5) and PMI (1) Few lucky gits managed AMS (1), MXP (1) or VCE (1).

I hope this info might help

Which preference did you indicate? Are you permanently employed?

Anyone know the prospects of getting BER base as a RHS new join? Also what the waiting list might be for transfer?
cheers

Good morning Duca,

I asked for Italian bases. Unfortunately they were already filled up so I got ALC instead.

The deal is fine and clear. easyJet is doing it the proper way: no self employed, no shortcuts, no shady conditions etc; and of course it includes all social contributions, benefits etc. Anyway, itís a 75% contract (9 months on, 3 off) but with a renumeration package of about 92%, including contributions (effectively a salary) during time off.

Yes, it is a permanent contract. Meaning I will return to work after the 3 months off. But my plan is to bid for a new base after line check. I personally donít mind the 75% contract - Iím quite happy with that but I am not the biggest fan of ALC. In fact I would have been much happier with AGP.

All right man thanks. Do you know if they use some sort of criteria to assign bases?

https://www.wolterskluwer.com/es-es/...mo-gestionarlo
You will not receive 92% of your salary but 6k before you will be made unemployed, which they call it 'unemployment support allowance'.
This is what I understood after talking to a SEPLA rep and defined in my contract: ďpermanent seasonal contact 9 on / 3 offĒ.

I also understand and know for a fact that everyone (I know of) with that contract has been re-called back; with regards to the 92%, it works out roughly that: 6k gross from EJU plus state/regional allowance. All together working out roughly that (I had the contract checked. Plus itís online available on BOE).

Not brilliant, sure: of course I would have preferred a 100% contract in one of my 3 choices. But Iím happy enough for now. As I said before, my plan is to join a base transfer list on completion of line check.

The chances for BER base as a RHS new joiner are very low, as quite a few FO's are waiting to return to BER, who where forced to leave the base during the redundancy waves of the last years.

FO: 30,210 + above. Roughly 40k all in

The atmosphere is largely fine, vast majority of crew are a pleasure to fly with. We have lost a fair few bodies recently to legacy airlines and the sand pit, as a result everyone is feeling the strain of summer and working high hours, combined with the constant disruption it can be quite fatiguing. If you take a full time base the autumn and winter is generally very pleasant with enough hours to keep you busy but not so much so that you can't recover from the summer onslaught. Training is first class.
Do you perhaps have an idea of the salary of a new cadet Second Officer with easyJet U.K.?

Is the FO salary still below the market in the UK? Or have they increased the package to compete with Jet 2?

Currently itís still well below jet2. Pay talks are in process at the moment, but large numbers of FOís leaving for BA, particularly from LGW and LTN. Northern bases are seeing a number of FOís leave for J2. Some also going to EK.

Looks ever increasingly that easyJet UK will strike at some point this year. BALPA rejected a 12.5% pay rise for this April, with another 2.25% from Oct 24 and then CPI+1% from Apr 25. With the company seeking a government mediator over negotiations.

We need to strike after years of being treated with thinly veiled distain. I hope other pilots actually have the balls to go through with a strike however and donít just roll over. This pay deal is being typical drawn over a ridiculous amount of time whilst the CEO bangs on about netting 1 billion this year. All after his CFO admitted in an interview heís was glad to have secured a below inflation pay deal post Covid and referred to all crew as cost buckets. Thatís fine. Donít give us whatís fair, in a cost of living crisis when you want your massive profits, then weíll strike. Goodbye pocket lining!
