Re: COVID MOA 2

I don't understand why they opened voting before the Q and A. I assume they weren't planning to have one but when 30% voted no they scrambled to educate the masses. After the Q and A the things everyone were freaking out about kind of seen like a nothing burger. If the MOA fails that's on ACPA for n...

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

Well said tailgunner.

If people are so concerned about some "genie out of the bottle" situation that can't be put back in with the end of the MOAs, well it already got let out 6 months ago anyways.

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

Re-evaluate at that time? I'm just trying to see where you're coming from. You're saying we should vote NO now because in 6 months, when it's time to vote again, we might not vote NO then?

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

Can you say why it doesn't snap back to contract in 6 months when the MOA ends? I haven't seen any of the doomsayers explain that yet.

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

These "Flat-payers" you deride are not going to be easily influenced by fear mongering. They've been subjected to it their whole lives by the media and have become numbed. Do you know what's actually scary? Having a real layoff notice already in your hand during a major economic downturn when nobody...

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

For 6 months. I've yet to see any of the sky is falling alarmists explain how it doesn't snap back to contract at the end of the 6 months. Are we going to let the company continue putting people on the street over 2 hours a month while many of us are going to get paid to sit at home? Because I belie...

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

Honestly who cares. Now is not the time to be spending "significant time, effort, expense, and deliberation in an effort to resolve these issues". An elected member could be jumping up and down and peeing on the roofs of cars in the Viscount parking lot and we'll deal with it later.

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

You're right, they're worse because more people believe they are objective journalists.

But back to Transat. Why did they say they're going to use as many one month extension as they need if they only have one left?

That is correct. I didn't mean the current ruling party. The whole system is against us.

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

The reason the American unions are so strong is because they can and will strike for gains. They've proven this time and again. America is a capitalism society. Canada is more a pseudo-socialism system where labor groups like Air Canada pilots are openly prevented from striking. Without this tool th...
