Once again, be thankful at asa there is a tpa in place.
We're the same way. The pay I'm talking about receiving if we're REQUIRED to check in is my hourly rate IN ADDITION TO per diem. I'm sick and tired of the company thinking/telling me I'm not working one hour prior to "go time". MAKE me check in and it's like punching a clock.....start paying me my hourly rate at the time of check in or my show time, whichever occurs later. That pay would stop when we set the brake after the first leg or after a DHD if that's the first leg.Originally Posted by Southerner
Kind of a thread drift, but the truly FAIR way to pay a pilot would be to have THREE rates. A base hourly rate that starts at show time each day, a flight rate that starts at brake release and stops at brake set, and per diem for overnights. Per diem for 4 hour sits is horse$hit, and per diem for getting the flight ready is, too. The base rate could be maybe a third of the flight rate. Yeah, it would be complicated, but it would be fair.
8 hrs of flight pay every work day. Period
200% goes up 16 hrs min for showing up. Period
