If we had agreed to the TA last time, maybe the company would be looking at the same cost cutting measures now, but we'd have lost all leverage.
Is it such an improbable scenario?

We still have leverage.
We can sit on our hands for another year or two.

But be sure that if my salary/housing take a cut, I am ready to do more.
Zapp, do you really think the trainers would all suddenly resign? I doubt that very much. Apart from an angry letter I haven't seen much activity from their side. What makes you think this could change suddenly?

To your point of "sitting on your hands": the ARAPA contract expires, are you not concerned by that? Or not affected?
