Please fill in: Atypical Employment Survey
Please take 20 minutes to fill in it!
Deadline: 7 May
In 2015, 1 out of 6 pilots was atypically employed – a worrying trend of airlines substituting directly employed pilots with contractors to reduce costs. This is why the EU Commission appointed Ricardo to carry out a study to explore the employment & working conditions of aircrews in Europe.
The study aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the different forms of employment of aircrews (incl. atypical forms of employment) and their implications for your working conditions. It covers topics such as temporary agency work, self-employment and pay-to-fly schemes and impacts on gender equality and work-life balance.
Your participation in this survey is crucial for the success of the study! Your responses will help assess the extent of (ab)use of atypical employment, their impact on working conditions, and if existing EU and national rules are sufficiently protective.
The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete. It will run for 6 weeks: Deadline 7 May.
