Re: AC/TRZ Transaction Approved by TC - $5 per Share

Tiny fraction of AC guys: Still don't care! Lose your houses before I drop 3 seniority numbers! At the beginning of all this, as an AC guy I wouldn't be over the moon about possibly losing a couple of months worth of seniority. But I probably wouldn't care too much. More important things to fill ou...

Re: AC/TRZ Transaction Approved by TC - $5 per Share

It is very clear that a combination means less jobs, what is so hard to understand about that. Don’t expect Air Canada employees to be happy to share that pain of lost transat positions. I want a serious straight faced answer as to why some Transat pilots expect the Air Canada pilots to happily sha...

The level of entitlement in this thread by some Transat guys boggles the mind.

Re: AC/TRZ Transaction Approved by TC - $5 per Share

Good, then let this be Quebec’s problem. As for Air Canada they, nor the rest of the country, care about the influence of the premier of Quebec. Why not just go with Peladeau’s offer then? It’s quebec-centric and the premier says he won’t let anything bad happen to Transat so there is no risk. AC i...

Re: AC/TRZ Transaction Approved by TC - $5 per Share

If Air Canada doesn't buy Air Transat, can both pilot groups elect to merge the lists anyways? I think this is a terrific idea and would go a long way towards pilot unity and lifting this industry up. If its for a job at AC We could go; 1.)AC pilots 2.)AC connector pilots in DOH seniority (because ...

Re: Air Canada Acquisition of Air Transat Approved by Minister

The europeans are the last best chance to save the careers of the 600 laid off AC pilots who will certainly suffer if 650 laid off transat pilots parachute in ahead of them.

Dont worry I dont think those guys and gals are getting their hopes up.

Re: Air Canada Acquisition of Air Transat Approved by Minister

Any chance that Air Canada will reject some of those conditions? Seems pretty steep. Some are even head shaking. I would have to assume that these have already been agreed upon by AC otherwise why even approve the deal at all if you know they will just balk at it. I agree things like granting compe...

Re: More WJ layoffs

As long as an initial course is not required (In my company that's 2 years), A Max rated pilot, current or not, would likely require half the training (or less) than a non rated pilot. I would be surprised if Flair didn't consider that a major plus. For any half decent pilot, with a Max rating, &qu...

Re: Cargo TA

Yup. We will not tolerate anything less than at least years of service 1 to 1 for merge. CAIL pilots didn’t get years of service and that merger was far more “like for like”. You say you won’t tolerate anything less, so what’s your plan when the arbitrator rules against that? Will you quit? Because...

Will the resulting pay rate be lower than Rouge 767 pay rate? 90% of mainline hourly wages. No mention of nav or overseas pay so I assume it won’t be paid. So about 80% ish of mainline.
