16 Results for Category Pilot Groups

The results are in: WestJet pilots have voted to join ALPA!

 This monumental vote wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and dedication of the WestJet Organizing Committee (OC). This team of more than 125 pilots worked tirelessly to unify their pilot group under a positive message which was pro-WestJet, pro-pilot, and pro-ALPA.

Over the past six years, Mesa Airlines has added more than 70 planes, touting their arrivals to the media and their employees. Meanwhile, the pilots continue to wait for a new contract, one that will bring them up to the industry average in total compensation. Currently, first officers make less than half of some of their peers at other airlines flying similar routes on similar aircraft. The shortfalls continue up through the seniority. Mesa pilots haven’t had a raise in pay since 2008.

More than 14,000 of ALPA’s members currently fly for regional airlines, and many of these pilots seek to continue their career by moving to a mainline carrier. This is why ALPA developed its Interview Workshop—to help our pilots prepare for the entire hiring process when their time comes. By partnering with the leading interview preparation consultants in the industry, we are able to offer interview prep workshops to our members at no cost.
