Jim McAuslan is new leader of BALPA

Jim
McAuslan has been named the new leader of the British Air Line Pilots’
Association (BALPA).

McAuslan,
currently deputy general secretary of PCS, the UK’s main civil and public
services union, is due to take up the post on 13 January.

McAuslan,
48, said he wants to increase the size and influence of the union: "It is
vital that the experience and expertise of pilots and flight engineers is used
to shape the future of civil aviation. Their views must be the ones that are
listened to, and heeded, not only throughout the industry but in Westminster
and Whitehall, where I’m determined that BALPA will have a still greater
presence."
