Re: I really like page 16 of the CHRT report

I have been here since 2007- way to long in my view but this subject has dominated with the many sub headings, twisted in many ways unimaginable. I mean how many times can each of you say the other is full of shit. Nothwithstanding the fact it is a done deal PILOTS at AC can WORK beyond 60 yrs old....

Re: Disability Benefits For Pilots Over Age 60

Please explain the upside of FP60? Being able to work past 60? My guess is that you arrived on the property long after I and my cohorts took a pay cut for over a year in order to save junior pilots from being furloughed. Showing any financial deference for anyone or anything but your own pocketbook...

Re: Disability Benefits For Pilots Over Age 60

...the AC pilot group didn't deserve the selfish-greediness displayed by the most senior pilots who benefited throughout their entire career of having pilots retire at 60 and then when it's their turn, they do a double-take and realize that they can sit on top of the pile for 5 more years, with zer...

Imagine that, a union defending the human rights of its own members, after it has spent 10 years and a huge sum of dollars on legal fees doing just the opposite!

Re: No Clear Winner in FCA Mandatory Retirement Decision

In my humble opinion, those who think this issue is six feet under haven't read the recent court decision very closely. I have to agree with M787 above, that instead of bringing the issue to a close the court simply ducked the key issues, leaving them in limbo for further hearings and more litigatio...

Re: Can the illegal acts still be condoned?

No, in the States the majority will be going by Age 65. They still have a limit, we don't. Proof is that George & Neil were over 65 when they came back. That wouldn't have been allowed down South. So if the legislated limit were 99, does that mean that the majority would leave at age 99? Your logic...

Air Canada doesn't care about ACPA; Air Canada only does what is in Air Canada's best interest. Is ACPA any different?
