    Pilots First means better working conditions, more respect and a strong independent voice for pilots

Pilots First

Pilots First is our flagship campaign

Pilots face many pressures including lack of support from airlines, inflexible working conditions and inadequate pay structures. These pressures can lead to fatigue, stress and they can have a significant impact on your mental health. We exist to stop the health and well-being of pilots from deteriorating further. Once this has been achieved our aim is to then improve the working conditions that create these problems in the first place. 

Other unions will of course claim to put pilots first, but in reality, they have bowed to the pressure of the airlines for too long and while this continues to happen, we will fight for change.

How can the PPU make change where other unions have failed? Because we are independent and because we know the struggle for a better deal for pilots is a long-term struggle that has be fought, patiently and relentlessly, day by day until you get respect and working conditions you deserve. After 80 years of single union representation, pilots need a fresh voice in negotiations with the airlines and the PPU will be that voice.
