C'mon.....enough is enough! Executive compensation is a red herring, something the IAM, ACPA and all AC unions, for that matter, focus on because it's easy to mislead their ill-informed members and raises the emotional pitch helping unions indoctrinate/brainwash their membership.
From the Air Canada facts sheet: the average salary for managers including executives is 71k. Average salary for a pilot is 143k. In the top twenty compensated employees, ten are unionized pilots!
Starting salary for a VP is about 170k which I am told is about what an airbus captains makes, both overpaid in my estimation.
From the annual report last year, the CFO's salary was about 500k. On a hourly basis, I'm sure he makes less than many of AC's wide body captains.
Also, from the annual report, CR negotiated his compensation package before he came to AC - good for him and good for us, he restructured the airline and kept us out of ccaa. Isn't that what was needed?? As for bonuses, it's a red herring too....I am told that all of ac's unions at one time or another have been offered variable compensation but all have turned it down, so don't complain about it.
We get it. In your 5 posts total on here you have made it abundantly clear that you are anti-Pilot, anti-Paul Strachan and anti-union.
Gotcha loud and clear.
...simply giving the facts, no bias....but thanks for your interpretation
You ARE biased, and your facts are misleading.
When you said that 10 of the top 20 compensated employees are unionized pilots, you leave out the fact that they are not LINE PILOTS. They are VP's or Senior Management Pilots making much more than a Line Pilot.
It is also ridiculous to compare hours worked and salary of a manager to a that of a pilot since pilots are not paid for the work they do on the ground prior to pushback or between flights.
In a typical week most pilots are on duty for 40 hours but only get paid for 20 hours of flight time.
