Re: No Clear Winner in FCA Mandatory Retirement Decision

None of us wanted to be here, but here we are anyway. that's easy then....tell the FP60 team to drop the proceedings and get on with enjoying your retirement instead of spending money and time in legal proceedings...the ball's in your court, don't "blame" others for being where you are. TFF ! :lol:...

Re: No Clear Winner in FCA Mandatory Retirement Decision

The point is that the ruling gives a bit more clarity and hope to the young pilots at Air Canada. They can plan their lives with a bit more certainty knowing that at least 70 pilots (who have already had a great career) will not be coming back and causing further stagnation in their career progress...

Re: No Clear Winner in FCA Mandatory Retirement Decision

:D I don't see anything funny about a broken legal system. None of the courts or tribunals to date have been able to make a decision based on legal fact and / or common sense. So far everyone has found a loophole to avoid landing the plane. This endless go-around is getting downright ridiculous. I ...

Re: Air Ontario Lawsuit

This frivolous lawsuit has been dismissed by the courts every step of the way.

I am also under the understanding that the SCC is swamped and only hears cases that affect national interest.

This dead horse can finally be buried.

Re: Next few days.....

You’re missing the point, duke. Pilots such as yourself bemoaned, ad nauseum, the destruction of your careers as a result of FP60, predicting loss of income that would cause pilots to default on their mortgages, and worse. The “sky is falling” chatter went so far as to create fear and prophesy layo...

Re: ACPA Leadership

The day that the ACPA so called "leadership" , took an active, unprecedented and illegal stance against 200 of its own members was the day it died as a union.

This change is the first glimmer of professionalism returning to the representation of the AC pilots.

What was the question in IVR 72? If I recall it wasn't a call to defend mandatory retirement to the bitter end. The fix was in on this vote long before it ever saw the light of day. The MEC sat down and decided the outcome well before it was presented to the membership. Instead of taking a methodic...

I'll bet many of them rejoiced as they bid into better seats, money, and quality of life at a time they could enjoy it all, though.

Mack The Knife; what a load of BS. The thousand (or so) Pilots that honorably retired during your tenure, yes the ones that allowed you to advance up the seniority list, were also "dirty rags." Furthermore, ACPA did not throw indexation "under the bus," it was STOLEN from us by an Arbitrator. As Ro...

In my humble opinion, the best and easiest solution is to abolish seniority based schedule bidding and progress to socialized bidding. You will not have this “problem” if the most senior captain works the same schedule as the most junior FO. The current system has made it too sweet to leave if give...
