Not only does the new contract stink, now the airport will as well.

ATTN: All POM based staff,

Water to the aerodrome area has been disconnected by Eda Ranu for non-payment of Bills by the NAC.

Urgent water deliveries have been arranged for operational Facilities that have exhausted their stand-by supply tanks. Deliveries will begin shortly.

REGARDS,

IT SERVICEDESK

Charley,

Care to give some examples of the improvements that have convinced you to sign up?

Any increase in base salary, say to what was in the previous contract with annual increases?

Return to 6 weeks leave?

Basings with rotations?

Anything, anything meaningful at all?

Charley Farley grow a pair of balls and stand with the rest of the pilots. The terms don't address the real problems at PX.
If you think signing will get you out of the right seat then you really need to wake up!

Hey Charley Farley,

Am hearing that only 3 or 4 have signed, guessing you will make the 4th or the 5th.

QUESTION: What is the game plan if none of the other 170 odd pilots don’t sign,…

ANSWER: Get jobs elsewhere...

ANSWER: NO MORE PIXIE....RIP

Hi Charley

On a recruitment drive are you? Normal advertising didn't work, don't think this will either.

It's long long TBL warrior, or sometimes known in PNG circles as a misfit.

I hope the rest of the boys don't talk to those signing up and risking and prejudicng the investment in both time and money put in to the pending court case against the company. How memories are short on how the company treated its professional pilots. The leopard never changes its spots despite the little sugar candies on offer. Child mentality in management will only attract the children.

Sore Knees.

Charlie mate, as an ex Pixie pilot (albeit some time ago) who understands the current situation I fear you may have stabbed yourself in the arse.

If the pilot body prevail in their legal action against the company you will find yourself on substantially lower T&C's than your fellow comrades, brother and sister pilots (and possibly sent to coventry for your appalling behaviour). If on the other hand the pilot body lose I would think your comrades, brothers and sisters will be making a swift departure via the emergency exits and you will be left alone, [email protected] in hand with your crappy "sugar candy" contract for a very long time.

Either way, I suggest you order two or three extra pairs of those Totally Workwear blue trousers as with the amount of time you must be spending on your knees you'll be needing them.......you may think about a bib too to keep that crappy shirt clean.

Disgraceful.

It is very interesting to note that the new contract is freely available to Fokker and Boeing pilots but Link Dash crew have to have a one on one with Toofar and Looneygona.

The ECP continues?

My sources tell me that the offer of the new contract has resulted in a stampede of 3 pilots rushing in to sign on the dotted line.

The lack of enthusiasm demonstrated by the other 150 odd pilots has left management scratching their heads wondering why they have not come in to collect the new contract.

So to save the pilots from walking in the heat to HR and avoid another stampede they have now decided to email the contract to each pilot expecting them to sign it with enthusiasm and return it immediately.

Really???

Oh Lagona, you've done it again!

Rumour has it that the national carrier is having difficulties meeting its obligations to fuel companies as the government drains the cashflow. Wonder how the interestingly priced leases and maintenance contracts for the B767 and B737 are going? Will those nasty white knights from the south inject cash to save face and continue to prop up the corruption as the ever ending spiral downwards of the grassroots continues.

Slowly running out of money - PNG EMBASSY IN SINGAPORE CLOSED: OFFICIALS KICKED OUT - PNGBLOGS

Also they have advertised again for Fokker Captains through IAC. Last advert was not successful, do they think things have improved for this one to be??

Out of curiousity who maintains the Boeings? According to the weekend papers, the New York embassy (didn't know there was one) is also under threat of closure.

Sad really. Paradise lost.
Wanim taim masta bilong ol kam bek?
I have the deepest sympathy for the grass roots people whose livelihood and future depend on central government making sound decisions for all citizens, not just the elite. PNG should have prospered for all, however a few have fd everything up. PNG/Africa...Same same but different. Beautiful country, beautiful people...apart from POM and the decisions made there
