Re: Layoffs

Regarding the reductions. I'm surprised how many people seem to think they will be pay protected in their current rate when/if they get reduced. The company isn't reducing you to a lower position so they can keep paying you!!! Don't make the reduction easy wrt training... that's the best way to reta...

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

I am happy to put aside differences.

But in the past it was you that insulted me, and here you still sink one more in with "senseless ass holes" , but as long as you're not going to start along that line again I think we'll be fine.

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

I wasn't trying to say that pilots in the middle east or asia are superior....in no way at all. But you have to recognize that their whole process is much more intense and last days going through psychometric tests, sims, interviews, group exercises. Getting a job in Canada has more to do with havi...

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

It is childish for pilots to attack each other just because they don't work at the same airline. Should have just left it at that... I agree 100% Lol, says an instigator himself. That's not true. Some people don't like the way I break something down, and for suggesting that the reason for the TRZ d...

Re: Layoffs

Saw an AC agent that I know at the store. He said that there were ten flights today(including Jazz) with a total of 91 passengers. Not good. There is no doubt that it's way WAY down, but that is completely off. There were about 100 Mainline AC departures from YYZ alone today, 91 passengers? Maybe t...

I'm just saying, you're claiming illegal collusion between two separate companies, alluding to having insider info and then denying it. So which is it? And that OSC link... $5 million reward to report improprieties like you have suggested. If I had direct knowledge of the things you say I'd take the...

Re: Layoffs

I think it's a slum-dunk that TC will defer the new FTD rules for at least a year if not two; the industry has survived without them for this long and increased costs is the last thing it needs to be heaved upon it. That will eliminate 300-500 positions that were in the last equipment assignment. R...

If you believe that everybody in the COVID era will take a haircut except the TRZ shareholders (including JME) then you may be in for a surprise. The transaction may happen - now - later - but it will not be on the terms of the original deal. Buying an airline that has completely ceased operations ...

It will just be shuffling the EI applicants from one company to another... there is no saving jobs here with a merger, not in any department and especially not now. The total staff needed at AC, whether combined with AT or not, in 6 months will be less than it was at AC alone when this deal was made...

Interesting choice.

Do you have family or friends there? Lots of nepotism in that region.

Re: Are recently laid off pilots hireable
