Compass Airlines (Minneapolis/St. Paul) (American Eagle and Delta Connection) has issued this statement about increasing the First Officer first-year pay in order to attract new pilots:
Compass Airlines is pleased to announce that the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) for its pilot group has been amended to increase first year, First Officer pay to $35.81 per flight hour. An additional highlight of the amended CBA is the provision of four paid hotel stays per month for commuting pilots. The amendment also gives Compass the flexibility to quickly raise first year pay in response to market conditions. The agreement was reached as part of a voluntary mediated settlement of a number of outstanding issues between Compass Airlines and its pilot group, represented by the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA).
The amendments to the contract are effective immediately.
