At the end of last week, representatives from the IPA head office travelled to Scotland to meet members with issues within their employment. Two further meetings with two different pilot groups are scheduled for the coming weeks. We react to our members needs. We are also pro-active in identifying when our members might need our help. If we are required to travel, we will. If you require representation, we will. If you want to meet us at our office, that’s fine too. We work for the benefit of pilots across all UK airlines and companies employing pilots.
Our members consist of airline pilots who have been with us since the start of their careers, and those who have left other unions because they have failed to deliver. Others join having never been a pilot union member but clearly see the benefits that being a member of the IPA can bring.
Recent successes for the IPA include settling a dispute regarding capability, ensuring that the pilot was treated proportionately and fairly throughout the process, lodging tribunal proceedings for pilots whose employer went into administration without prior warning and dealing with the administrator and secretary of state for work and pensions to ensure that those affected are properly compensated, lodging claims in respect of various discrimination claims with a successful outcome, and dealing with cross jurisdictional proceedings to establish the correct employer for the purposes of redundancy. We have also recently met with the minister for aviation to discuss concerns about the future of the aviation industry.
Please get in touch with our specialists to discuss joining our pilot association - we'd love to hear from you.
