United Pilots Side-Step Furloughs, Ratify Letter of Agreement

Pilot Furloughs Cancelled, 13000 Pilots Stay Employed

Our friends flying for United Airlines tell us that they "worked hard for this one." What they're talking about is their approval of a Pandemic Recovery Letter of Agreement (LOA) with United Airlines management. The agreement keeps all 13,000 United pilots employed and cancels the 2,850 previously announced furloughs. “Our members understood that in order to protect pilot jobs, we needed to approve this agreement,” said Capt. Todd Insler, United ALPA Master Executive Council chairman. “We’re spreading the existing flying among our pilot group while locking in permanent contractual gains. I am proud of our pilots for showing the unity and resolve needed in the face of uncertainty.”

Garret Graves (LA-06) have introduced the Human Factors Improvements to Aircraft Certification Act, bipartisan legislation to prioritize the consideration of human factors in the aircraft certification process and support pilots and flight crews as aviation technology advances. “Airplanes are changing rapidly, and the federal government is not keeping pace with those changes. Integrating human factors throughout the aircraft design and certification process will help address systemic issues with increasingly automated aviation systems,” said Larsen.

ALPA Canada Tries to Rally Support For Aviation Industry

Awaits Further Details But Sees Some Reason For Cautious Optimism

It's all about the mooney... As Canada’s aviation sector continues to struggle from the effects of COVID-19, the most recent throne speech shed some light on potentially meaningful government assistance to directly support the aviation industry and protect the jobs of its workers.
