Fair enough on para. 1 Raymond. After 800 odd posts i'm sure I wasn't the only reader suspicious.Raymond Hall wrote: Not correct. You don't know who Rockie is, but I do. We met once, when I was still an active line pilot, and we have corresponded a few times since then. He is not a member of the Coalition, so he is not privy to the correspondence that goes out to our members, but he is who he says he, a fairly junior line pilot, with a mind of his own.
And for the record, nobody (in the Coalition) is trying to "screw you over." Those types of comments are unhelpful to the discussion thread, and reflect more about your own unwillingness or inability to comprehend the significance of the legal issues to be decided than they do about the points raised in discussion here.
Regarding para. 2, My comment may not be "helpful" to your agenda but they are still relevant. Is your coalition seeking to take money from my bank account (line of credit actually) or not ? You see, since people have had the option to stay at the top of the food chain my pay has decreased ~15%. Seventy hour DBM's where you are blocked closer to 67 hours leaves nothing at the end of the month for many pilots. I guess I should be thankful that Air Canada has chosen to eat the surplus rather than create a massive downbid that would put many colleagues on the street....I digress. The past actions of the company and ACPA are what they are but the people you seek to pay damages are individuals like me. One voice in the crowd. So forgive me if I see the need to ask the bank for a second mortgage to pay your clients as a "screwing over". In all sincerity, what would be a more apt term then ?
