Re: Boeing Update, for Air Canada Pilots — News and Views

One can wonder why anyone of "credibility" would post an editorial from a paper who actively promotes "left extremism". There are many other sources. Since when was political correctness, according to your standard of publications, a precondition to posting aviation-related material on an aviation ...

Re: Boeing Update, for Air Canada Pilots — News and Views

The Washington Post? Seriously Ray? I thought you're blood ran slightly blue. There isn't a more left-leaning, democratic, far-left leaning liberal rag in the entire U.S.A. The quotes are from the report. That is what is relevant to aviation. It just so happens that the Washington Post published it...

Some points of law, FYI: In the federal jurisdiction, a "duty of fair representation" ("DFR") complaint (filed under Section 37) is made to the Canada Industrial Relations Board "CIRB", the long-time successor to the Canada Labour Relations Board ("CLRB").

Re: 2nd Job

Don't get me wrong. I am certainly not accusing you of any unethical conduct or in providing anything other than vigorous advocacy to your clients. ... A lawyer's greatest contribution to their client is, IMO, their ability to offer their unbiased opinion. That's very difficult to do when there's a...

Re: 2nd Job

Check First Air or Air Yukon i'm pretty sure they still have captains over 70 flying. Nobody should force you to stop flying at X age if you want to continue and are still fit. There are many Canadian airlines that operate entirely within domestica airspace, especially in the North. Of course they ...

Re: 2nd Job

When ICAO and the US DOT amended maximum certificate age to 65, the age 60 BFOR argument in Canada for airline pilots was dead. 100% correct, except for the fact, as Rockie mentioned, that it still applies to Air Canada pilots at age 65. No tribunal or court is going to force an employer to employ ...

Re: 2nd Job

IMO mandatory retirement isn't discriminatory - a pilot's age is an occupational qualification, once you hit a certain number you're not qualified anymore. Nice idea, but the law and science are against you. Presently, in Canada, there is no mandatory retirement age for pilots, or for any other occ...

Re: 2nd Job

They CONSTANTLY bitch about it (and you), the demographic between 50-60 especially who have to work past 60 to go without penalty.. That is categorically incorrect. Air Canada and ACPA have both maintained that "the normal age of retirement" remains age 60. There is presently no penalty to the pens...
