    No surprises in his statement.

    I do agree that direct negotiation works best. Let's hope they can follow through and close in on the rest of the labour agreements with a little bit less drama!

    I think first we need to get this one ratified ... this is not a done deal - remember the negotiation team recommended the last offer also and that went nowhere :rolleyes:

    I believe I read on G&M mobile that the FA union rejected the deal again before ratification this evening

    The G&M mobile article I see refers to the rejection of the discount carrier - not the new offer - they withdrew their support for the discount carrier.

    Yeah, I think that's pretty much dead. Personally, I'm not convinced it was a good idea in the first place.

    Nothing is dead until it is physically impossible. However, it will now take some more work and creativity for AC to go the discount route. Bad ideas will keep coming up, and as AC faces more competition, they will be forced to try something to stem the bleeding.

    The discount carrier concept is not dead yet. The LCC could be revisited at any time through additional negotiations. This is how Tango and Zip were created, Jetz too (Jetz required a lot more creative language than other two airlines). CUPE had to agree not to allow Jetz flying to go based on seniority, but rather the union gave Management sole discretion to pick crew members.

    Its also possible that CUPE has decided not to represent the LCC FA's
