Re: Layoffs

I think the rumours of Rouge's death have been greatly exaggerated.

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

I'm curious if most laid of Air Transat are actively trying to pursue new jobs or are waiting for this buyout to happen? It's fun to speculate on what might happen but if it stops someone from advancing their career in the meantime it be harmful to them. If the dream of being merged into the ACPA se...

If the lists are merged during these layoffs, all TS pilots senior to AC pilots that are still working would remain laid off.
Interesting. Thanks for the correction.

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

Has a seniority list merger ever happened during a layoff period? What happens then? I would say any pilot on layoff before the seniority list merger will remain on layoff. Even if pilots junior to them are merged into the list. ie. AC pilots will remain laid off while TS pilots are employed. Any a...

Re: Layoffs

There may be a silver lining in that layoff notice for Transat pilots. If their management truly believes the deal with AC is going through at the price negotiated there is no reason to continue operating the company while losing money hand over fist. Better to sit back and wait for your $750 millio...

Re: Layoffs

Flat pay should be flat. If it is X amount when you are busy it should still be X amount when you're not. That's a risk you take when you set up something like flat salary.

management certainly could break the contract and lay off whoever they want
If they did that every pilot in the company would walk. Let's not get out of hand with these theories. It's easy to let fear get out of hand.

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

Interesting press release.
Furthermore, the acquisition of Transat A.T. Inc. is subject to regulatory approvals and certain customary conditions, and there are no assurances that the acquisition will be completed as described in Air Canada's 2019 MD&A or at all.

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

Don't be rude to iflyroads. Their posts are the only insight into hiring for a lot of people. It's good to hear interviews are still taking place. Though given how long some people are waiting between interview and hiring it might it could be interviews for after the pandemic passes or even next year.

How does AC get out of the Transat deal? Can they just pay some penalty and walk away?
