“"How many leaders actively seek out and encourage views alien and at odds with their own? All too few...Who in your organization serves as your Challenger In Chief? Interrogating the choices you are considering making? Making you consider the uncontemplated, the unimaginable and that which contradicts or refutes your position? And also challenging you?"”
NetJets Pilots Raise the Salary Standard
In December, NetJets pilots voted overwhelmingly in support of a major amendment and five-year extension to their collective bargaining agreement with NetJets Aviation. The pilots are represented by Teamsters Local 1108. While the contract was not up for renewal, the two sides nevertheless came together to forge the extension "in the best interests of both parties." NetJets first officers' first-year pay climbs from $39,000 to $56,875 under the seven-days-on/seven-days-off schedule. This eclipses the previously industry-leading salary for new-hire first officers of $40,000 at CitationShares.
