You bore me with your supposed revelations that the Canadian public doesn't care about the relevant social issues here. It doesn't change the fact that Air Canada pilots will not give up their livelihood for the sake of somebody else's short term convenience. Not even yours however important you think it is.
Public support is just not that important because we are the employees. Public support is important to the company because they are they entity that has to make money, and so far the company has not given two shits what the public thinks.
Why don't you take your shallow, one dimensional rage and direct it at people who actually have the power to change how thing are going?
Newsflash Rockie, they don't care. They care about getting from point A to point B without any interruptions or harassment that inconvenience them. Your "livelihood" would not exist without them so conveniencing the customers should be high priority and in your best interest as the front line people.
And yes Rockie, the membership does have the ability to enact change, you just haven't figured out how to do it in a responsible and beneficial manner.
Tell me Rockie, in your infinite wisdom, if customers go ahead and pick up the phone and call the other airlines, which you have told them to do, and decide they like that product better, which they will, where does that leave you when they don't come crawling back begging for a seat on your airline, which you seem to expect they will. But the customer doesn't matter right? It won't matter, as long as you have a seniority number and the DB pension, you will be taken care of forever, no need to plan life in the future, you have it all figured out. Customers are irrelevant in this fantastic plan. Why havent we all jumped on this gravy train? It can surely never go away!
It's always managements fault and the unions shoulder no blame at all, not just for this mess, but everything! It's such a repetitive cycle, you are absolutely right, it is boring, so amazingly predictable and the same BS with every union I have ever dealt with.
