Help pilots stand up for their rights!
A APPLA apoia uma campanha promovida pela ECA (European Cockpit Association) que visa apoiar, a nível europeu, os Pilotos que se veem numa situação de desemprego por terem tentado defender os seus direitos, nomeadamente o direito ao Associativismo e à Contratação Colectiva.

Nobody should be afraid to speak up, be a whistle blower or stick his/her neck out. Yet a handful of European airlines still prefer to intimidate, subtly pressure or completely silence their crews. Management strategies from the union-busting handbook have obstructed pilots from speaking with one voice.
Some who dared to speak up in the past were singled out, disciplined or fired.
Now, the recent cancellation crisis shows there is a new generation of pilots to act. They no longer agree with having their contracts changed unilaterally (when they have a contract at all…). They want to negotiate as a group, on equal terms with their management. They want to elect their pilot leaders. They want their representatives to stand up and speak on their behalf, without fear of punishment or worse - losing their job.
This #PilotUnity struggle is more intense than ever before. And pilots need your support!
Support #PilotUnity! Help pilots stand up for their rights!
We have set up this benevolent fund to provide a safety net for pilot leaders. It is available to those who find themselves out of a job in direct consequence of stepping forward as a representative to voice concerns and to assert the pilot profession’s right to Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining.
The fund is administered by the European Cockpit Association on behalf of the entire pilot community, with the sole purpose to provide financial security to such pilot leaders, having distinguished themselves in the struggle for collective representation.
Whether you have been a vocal supporter of fair direct employment, or you too are a flying professional, or you believe that all people are entitled to stand up for their rights without being punished for it, you can show your support by contributing to this #PilotUnity Fund.
The pilot community is one, united & determined to go in one direction! #PilotUnity
