Re: Vote results.

Things that don't add up: Saying our pilot costs will take away most of our profit. AC's pilot costs are higher than WJ and yet they are profitable. (And could have investment grade corporate rating soon) Here's another one: "he with the lowest costs wins". And yet AC is applying tactics to have low...

Re: WJ Scab List

I do know that when ALPA was formed, the constitution prevented non-whites and women from being members, so it wouldn’t surprise me if a “scab list” was maintained.

Thanks for sharing. Very relevant today WRT WJ/Swoop. Perhaps you could share in WJ area. This is something all WJ pilots need to see.

Re: Swoop Blacklist

For the people that say pilots should be able to take these left seat Swoop jobs off the street. Seriously, using your logic why not apply to AC direct entry left seat on the 319, 67, heck you deserve left seat 787.

What do you care about the 1000's of pilots already there?

Re: Westjet lobbies government against AC pension moritorium

This is about AC wanting to buy a shwack of 320NEO's or C Series with pension money.

BTW I always wondered why AC only ordered half the replacement aircraft for the 767's. It all makes sense now though. Guess that was the plan all along!
