Re: No Clear Winner in FCA Mandatory Retirement Decision

Glad you find it entertaining. If....you get bored of it, (doesn't seem you do, as you keep coming back) there is a great deal of other discrimination cases to read about, except for the "other employee's of AC" that were not represented, by the boot prints on the FP60's back's, from acpa. But acpa,...

Re: No Clear Winner in FCA Mandatory Retirement Decision

So......discrimination is legal, and ok, and just business, and above all....gooood, when it is only about money? The fact, that acpa and AC discriminated ONLY against the pilots, was totally ok in your books, as it was all about the money/promotions/vactions, that some....pilots would not get soon ...

Re: No Clear Winner in FCA Mandatory Retirement Decision

Read 787 Mechanic's statements again. And...he is not in this issue as a FP60 member. AT AC, only the pilots were age discriminated against!

Re: No Clear Winner in FCA Mandatory Retirement Decision

AT Air Canada, ALL, the other unions, agreed, that, age discrimination was age discrimination. ALL the other unions, went to Arbitration, and the end result, was, ALL the members, that wanted to come back to work, for what ever reason, got to, EXCEPT the pilots. So....how is it, that AC can accept, ...

Your numbers don't make sense, on the entire issue, and it is even further reduced, due to variable retirements actually happening as we type away at this issue. Could someo...
