When we get updates, let's keep it out of he public domain please guys.

It's OUR business, not for the trolls.

The AOA website will provide updates in due course. No news is GOOD news.

Excellent advice from Cpt Underpants

Let's keep this to the AOA forums only.


If you read the AOA forums & updates your answer lies in there.

I'm sure there will be a news blackout until after the negotiations are complete. Neither group wants to negotiate in the public eye.

That being said, I'm as anxious as everyone else about hearing some news. I honestly don't think that it will be good news though.

Cap'n Undies - spot on.
Agreed, nothing on this site for the freeloaders and journos to read.
AOA forum and updates are just fine for the correct latest info.
Not a member? - tough!

Ladies and Gentlemen


As you are aware, we have been in salary negotiations all of this week. AOA Australia, AOA Canada and the HKAOA were all separately represented during the negotiations, and an independent Bargaining Representative from Australia was also present.

The talks have been constructive and this morning the Company presented an offer in response to the proposals presented by your Associations.

After several hours of detailed study and further negotiations, your Negotiating team was able to accept the Company's offer, which will now be presented to the three General Committees with a recommendation for acceptance. It will take some time, but hopefully not too long, for the respective GC's to decide on the recommendation from the Negotiating Team, after which the membership will be asked to vote on the offer.

More, detailed information will be circulated to you as soon as possible.

Thank you all for your patience over the past few months since we first submitted our proposals on salary increases.

John Findlay

Assistant General Secretary Professional

for and of behalf of the Negotiating Team for

AOA Australia, AOA Canada and the HKAOA

17 December 2010.

I thought a little professionalism would have been shown here? Obviously not!

No wonder we can never show the "united front" to the company. This is truly a disgrace and I hope you "Thrust" (or maybe"No Thrust" or Anti-Trust" would be better!) feels better.

Thrust, what did you hope to achieve by posting essentially classified information on a public forum? Was it for the benefit of those free-loading non-AOA members out there?

Internal communications, whatever the source, are not for general viewing.

I hope you apply more thought and intelligence to your operation because both are lacking in abundance here!

I'll save you all the suspense. It is a shitty deal and it will either be rejected (doubt it) or more likely sugar-coated to make it go down easier.

The tone of the DFO update on Friday should give you a hint that it is a very meager offer.

Anyway, Raven said it best, everyone just chill a bit.

Fac, what part of 'shut your gob' don't you understand...? Just wait for the details, and THEN offer your wisdom. If it's a crap offer, i'll join you in throwing brickbats, but why even comment until we've seen the details?
