BALPA meets with Jet2 to discuss a way forward on scheduling and rostering
Today, BALPA reps and officers attended collective conciliation with Jet2 management concerning the company’s refusal to talk to BALPA on matters of scheduling and rostering.
Acas facilitated the meeting held in Leeds, where Jet2 is based. Although no agreement was reached today, the parties hope to draw a line under recent events and move into the New Year working constructively together.
BALPA Scheduling Specialist Ian White commented:
“BALPA work closely with most UK airlines in a joint approach to the vital areas of Crew Scheduling and Fatigue management, this joint approach is not only beneficial to the company’s Pilots but also to the operators, in identifying potential scheduling issues and making positive changes before any major issues arise. We will continue to pursue a Joint approach to Scheduling in line with best practice in the rest of the industry.”
