Re: Days worked

Didn't you guys negotiate a pension in the CA? When will it be implemented?

The tax hit on that ESP is the shits.

Re: Air Canada staff will no longer greet 'ladies and gentlemen' onboard planes

Yeah I didn't put much energy into that, but still, if you're describing the sign, may as well be accurate. Seriously though? The Holocaust? Slavery? Jim Crow segregation laws? Gay bashing? Airplane announcements? Is that really a valid parallel to draw here? The problem you have is you're quick to ...

No, the non-binary people feel they are neither male nor female. That's what this is catering to I think.
They are entitled to feel that way, but do they have a vagina or penis?

Re: Air Canada staff will no longer greet 'ladies and gentlemen' onboard planes

People certainly have a right to an opinion AirFrame, just because they don't agree with whatever yours is, doesn't make them uncouth. People might feel this way or that way, or another way as far as their expression goes. That's the great thing about where we live, they can, you be you. But is it n...

1. The first thing I said was it's too low. 2. I said more "like" which is an epistemic modality that signals to the reader a lesser degree of certainty in the exactness of my number. 3.

Re: Air Canada staff will no longer greet 'ladies and gentlemen' onboard planes

I'm not the best with reading all the fluff the company puts out either... But I haven't seen squat on directives from anyone at the company telling me what I have to say or not say. I've only seen a new story... Perhaps someone more interested in it all than me can post the bulletin# for reference.

Re: Air Canada staff will no longer greet 'ladies and gentlemen' onboard planes

There is nothing wrong with saying ladies and gentlemen.

It might not be envogue with the woke PC bunch but it's a straight up classic. If you're offended, I wasn't talking to you, have a nice day and call yourself whatever you want.

It doesn’t matter what you bid, they don’t have to train you in the new position.
FACT
Unless it's a different base.

And if they don't train you, they have to pay you like the new position, unless it's a downbid.

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

I was under the impression the seniority draw for each class was completely random, equipment selection was then done based on that seniority. I was not aware AC “assigns” positions. The seniority draw is random. But flight ops will assign you your type irrespective of seniority on occasion and aga...

That's a strawman argument.

We aren't talking about SOPs, we are talking about common language.
