EK Pay review

OK, so now the profit share is done and dusted. Time for next topic, pay review.

What do you make of these numbers?:

The priority should always be on decent basic pay rise. This stays with us and forms the basis for future pay reviews and Company contributions to provident fund and profit share calculations. 3200-3500dhs is the sum profit share for GR2's and GR1's this year thanks to basic pay of around 4500-5500. If their flight pay was taken into account, the profit share would be almost double. A purser will collect around 5500 max. An extreme example perhaps but nonetheless a valid one in my opinion.

I do accept that rents and house values have risen at an alarming rate within the last 18-24 months as have school fees and general living costs including grocery items and clothes. These increased costs must be taken into account when considering an increase in the respective allowance especially for many grades, including cabin crew, who have no option but to move out when they marry and have family.

As pilots it's a different story. The Company provided us accommodation and the choice to rent or buy was ours. We knew the risks and some guys took it. For those that bought, well done. Those that rent.....good luck. Either way, as Tom Cruise famously shouted....."SHOW ME THE MONEY!"

Last year it was announced the Wednesday after the results were announced. So yes, it could (should?) be today...

They often do it after 5 p.m. on Thursday to let it sink in over weekend.

I see that as good news. 'They' want it to be a big announcement not just a Thursday push-and-run.

The Qantas news must have forced a pay review re think meeting of the bean counters so they can do exactly that...count their beans post QF redundancy announcement.
