When I was there (ages ago) there was no union and of course, no kind of scheduling agreement. All sorts of dodgy rostering with no concern at all for crews. I have no idea what subpart Q contains...

I'm sure the Electra boys don't want to get near the ATP and I'm pretty sure that management don't want them on it. Do you think they have any chance of retaining their current salaries? No I'm sure...

Same old Atlantic. Always short term thinkers. Senior management think, "lets hammer down pay, conditions and show them what real hard work is about." To them you are White Van Man. Unskilled labour,...
