Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Updated Purchase Price at $5 per share

I'd also like to know the source. First I've heard of it. Rotten luck to be the only group without CEWS. Edit to add.... The fact that we are getting information regarding pension buy backs today, tells me AC has no plan of putting us back on CEWS (in other words, having equal pension contributions)...

Hiring. Now that’s a word I haven’t heard in awhile.

Re: COVID MOA 2

How much do the benefits cost AC? Claimsecure is an administrator, not an insurer. The CWIPP pension costs them 4.5% of SFA. The news will soon come out about CEWS. They can't resist free money... As a furloughed member, I just applied for EI. Being on CEWS would be a huge change for me and my fami...

Re: Non Aviation Employers Don't Respect Pilot Experience

It's extremely frustrating. I'm working for $16.80 an hr in a casual position while I search for something long(er) term. Looking at various jobs/industries. I've found you need formal training AND experience to make anything over ~$24/hr. This means schooling and experience which, even best case, c...

I agree. I don't expect my fellow pilot group to continue taking concessions, nor do I want them to. I made my own decisions and I have to make the best of it.

Re: CEWS

I'm not sure I follow. The 162 are on CEWS and being paid, just like me. Everyone took at 27% reduction in hours (75, now 55 hrs) in order to prevent further layoffs.

Re: CEWS

That's well put Rudder- can't really add anything more to that statement. A CEWS extension offers a couple huge advantages over going to EI or CERB. We continue to receive benefits, pension, and most importantly (in my opinion), YOS. Coming back after 2 years on layoff to year one flat pay is the bi...

Re: CEWS

As far as I know-Yes. I’m on the Surplus list. I mean CEWS would be nice and all, but I understand AC’s point of view. I thought Management was just playing hard ball with the Government.

Only a couple days left before they have to give us our notice... I wish they would hurry up and do it already.

Re: Covid Jobhunt: To send resumes or to wait until things settle down ?

Thank you Very Much ! Will do ! And I don't have any 705 dreams at all :/ a turbine or a multi and I will be happy :)
Yeah I said the same thing too. Although, the most fun I ever had, with a solid group of guys, was living on a reserve. Flew our bags off and had some awesome parties.

Re: A Twist on Medical

I lost my medical for 6 month due to migraine(s). Told my aviation doctor, he told me not to fly for the time being. I was at a respectable 705 company and I was removed from my flying with pay. Long story. Did MRI, CT Scan, saw a Neurologist- everything came back negative. Neurologist diagnosed me ...

Re: The Avcanada COVID Employment Poll

Close! Felt like I was checking NOTAMS. :lol:

I answered with what I copied. I think that's the closest to my situation and represents the spirit of the poll.

I will be laid off. I will get a temporary non-aviation job. I want to return to my pilot job (recall).

I did well with WJ before the ONEX purchase. If ONEX paid a higher dividend, I'd probably let some pesos ride with them.

Re: 79 Airplanes Retired

Based on this news, how much more downsizing can be expected at AC Express going forward? There was no future fleet plan provided in the Management Discussion and Analysts. Which is unusual. The 79 fins getting parked are just the sum of aircraft that are older. IOW it appears like that is the numb...
