I don't think any of the signatories are under any illusions as to the consequences of a lack of action by the board/senior management.

Resign from training or be sacked.

They've voiced their concern to management that the travelling public is at risk.
The next step is to voice their concerns to those who are at risk. ie, the public through the media.
The next step is resign from C and T.

You can't remain a custodian of a safety culture that you believe is unsafe and a threat to the travelling public.
It'd be like the head of Corporate Safety saying we're unsafe and no one is listening, yet stay in the job.

cxorcist - standing by for the "will you two get a room" comments from the floor.

Thankyou for your opening, it's possible

No! I.... Me.... "WN" am absolutely NOT saying you or anyone else should abandon any position in the airline. I just believe that logically if YOU dislike, and think what's going on is unsafe to the extent that you think anyone who shares those views, (The trainers) should bail then by YOUR logic YOU are just as responsible for voting with your feet as them. Personally I would exhort everyone to do their best to keep the operation safe and carry out what we've democratically agreed. CC, not JOINING training and operating professionally, no more, no less. Cheers. Out.

Surely you can resign from training for 'personal reasons' stating that you wish to go 'back to Line duties'. It's not a life sentence. You just don't want to do it any more????? What's the problem with that?
Big picture is if 50 'Management reps' throw the towel in at the same time ( let's
make it 49) a few interesting things would happen. Firstly the Cathay Flying Circus 'spokeswoman' would be a bit pushed for an explanation and, secondly, the public may well opt for an alternative and then, God help us all, some peoples' bonuses may be at risk!!!!!

Better yet, make it 4 resignations on day 1.

Then, if a second day is necessary, 49 more resignations.

Those numbers might ring a bell.

That illustrious anniversary is coming up. Don't waste it.

Having previously worked in a company requiring taxi duties, I strongly wish this doesn't get implemented here. We were paid 15 minutes per taxi duty. Of course in the real word it took 45 or more. Pay is not the issue I have, though. It is the complete lack of support and communication that is required to make this go smoothly. In my experience there were rarely marshallers and wing walkers waiting for you. After the taxi operation, you could wait forever on a crew bus. Worst of all is that you will probably miss your commuting flight after arriving in Hong Kong. As the whole process takes an hour at best.

So it's kinda like the freighter operation.... you on your own.

Next it will be sign on for taxi duties when its quiet.. i.e. back of the clock, then no transport home or taxi allowance!
