Thumbs up

Well done,

How pleased are you with the new deal and did it meet most of your expectations?

in a nutshell:

- no champagne bottles popped...
- the duration is much too long
- the CEO takes it very personal, so he still hasnīt got the message
- % are "just bearable" to "OK" for most... wouldnīt have become any better after a "NO"
- they didnīt manage to split the pilots groups of the four companies and thus VC > VERY IMPORTANT!
- VC has very much work ahead negotiating pension, working rules and upgrade contracts
- VC has much work ahead analizing and learning from this

Donīt forget: LH only last year (after more than 20 years of working on it) finally accepted VC as a union, which has made us legally able to negotiate contracts without "help" from other non-pilots unions.

Now you people in BA and CX have to show what you can do...

The contract will even run till April 2004!
Well, the majority accepted it and I guess there really wasn't much more we could have gotten ourselves than more trouble.
