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

Transat website now says Outside Date extended to October 27th. https://www.transat.com/en-CA/corporate/investors?ici=TRZ-footerlink&icn=TRZ-investors Interesting that it's one line of text on the website, not a press release for the announcement, and nothing from AC that I can see on the investor ...

Re: COVID MOA 2

This is insinuation and conspiracy. You are naming names while hiding behind your anonymity. This isn’t fair. Alright. Edited. But I don't think saying the individual in charge of it at our association better be on the ball and on top of scope is "naming names." Do we all not know who the scope cha...

Re: COVID MOA 2

Your « yes man » comment gets a « chicken-little » response and in the same post you call that insulting ? You said you're a Yes man. That you support whatever the Union and company put out. Ok. Is that not what you mean? I think that's a simple way to put it. You think 1.03.04 is our protection fo...

Re: COVID MOA 2

82.5% YES 89% turnout Active pilots voted themselves a pay raise while 600 members are out of work and wondering where their next meal will come from. Disgusting. Actually it's a continued pay cut for all but those in the first 4 years... But the scope lets might keep the 600 out a little longer......

Re: COVID MOA 2

I didn't vote for the MOA. However, I won't vilify those who did. I could make a well thought out argument on why I didn't and I am sure those who did can do the same. Reasonable people can disagree. Lets move past the "you don't 100% agree with me, therefore you are the enemy" thinking. There is e...

Re: COVID MOA 2

Lots of fear out there. I'm glad the fixed rate guys get a bump back to contract guarantee and 180 guys can sleep better tonight. Although with that result the corp no doubt thinks they gave too much. Anyway, let's hold them to every ounce of it and get ready for the next assault on our contract, it...

Re: COVID MOA 2

Altiplano, the barren high plains of South America, got it. Yes, I am a pilot and like you a member at the ACPA. I have always trusted the ACPA with my contract and all the NC that have worked on my behalf. I trust them now, I trusted them all my career. My experience changed once in 2006/07 with t...

Re: COVID MOA 2

Talk to your Pension Chair. There are scenarios where the company winds it up sooner and the pilots don't get the surplus. Even if it was when we're all dead, why did we continue to pay 25% extra into a plan that we couldn't get improvements on just for cyborgs to get it in the end. F-that. I don't...

Re: COVID MOA 2

Ummmm. Don’t know about the Mars Exploration Rover or auto insurance. But the pension surplus belongs to the pilots. Not if it is wrapped up. Ask your pension chair what happens to any surplus - who gets it - when there is nobody left for it to pay out. In 75 years when we’re all dead? The cyborg s...

Re: COVID MOA 2

I guess you are right Altipaino, you also seem angry. The ACPA has leverage, and should stop asking the pilots for any changes to the contract. It’ll all be just fine. Revenue for Q2/2020 was 11% of Q2/2019. Nothing to see here. AC is on track for a 5+ Billion dollar loss for this year. Just a temp...

Re: COVID MOA 2

Re: COVID MOA 2

Altipaino, This is where your logic fails you, you think the company decides « what they want to do ». They don’t ! of course they do. we don't influence them. what's best for the corp is exactly what they will do. they don't consult us or do any favours. The industry has been decimated, your caree...

Re: Trudeau Throne Speech.. any comprehensive support for aviation?

Canada is the only G7 country not offering support to their Airlines. Why is that? Are we somehow smarter than Germany or Japan or Britain or France? Letting our airlines fail is good policy? Fact is we have a dolt in the Front Office of this country. Not only is there no support, we have among the...

Re: Lesson Learned, Unionize!!!

I’m not sure I follow the logic. There is most definitely more unionized pilots out of work right now than non-unionized. So, how would a union save me? There are most definitely more unionised pilots than non-unionised in this country. Particularly at Airlines. Are there any large operators withou...

The fact is that we don't know what they were doing to do and we are writing then a blank cheque on codeshare/JV. There is also setting aside LOU74 ratios.

Re: COVID MOA 2

The CPA scope language that is being violated without agreement is outside the MOA. Those are the two issues. One immediate. One future. ACPA has chosen to keep the issues separate and deal with them separately. Some would like the issues intertwined. I get that. That certainly would be the best op...
