5 Cs IFS retirement not extended...why ah?

Mr.Chua Sow Ngang had been more than a conscientious supervisor with SIA for many years. Not only a loyal emaployee but also one who went out of his way to help in charity work that enhanced SIA's name internationally as champion of the poor and deprived.He was actively involved in the 5 Cs (cabin crew club for community care) even during the time when I was with SIA. He was a nice chap and fun to work with according to crew that I know.
Unfortunately, I was told his retirement was not extended. Usually an IFS retirement would not be extended because of poor conduct or bad work performance and Mr Chua was neither. I understand that IFS who were less deserving had their retirement extended even to age 60. Well I hope I was given the wrong info because if it was true then it would not be fair for Mr Chua.

He is just one of the few. anyway sooner or later got to go. Better sooner so can start something on the outside faster. Remember Rome was not built in a day. This is also a warning to those to spend their off days in the office, don't expect fairness from the Mgmt.

Aiyah! Whether extended or not nothing surprising.
Look at the year 2003. There are good ones who left the co.

Whether a good worker or a whistle blower, their time will come.

"Never be loyal to the co."

Just be dedicated and commited to your job.

Speak volume about what sort of co it is!

It's a big loss for the co. not You!

"UNGRATEFUL" is the word.

One door shut Ten doors open!

"Chua was caught doing something he should not do. No is above....."

Humans do make mistakes.

You mean the management is Perfect?

Well what goes around with the management comes around.

It's a beautiful world out there.

Time to relax and enjoy the things you miss doing when you were a crew.

Live one day at a time.

Chua was a nice guy but not extended. Rpek is a pig and he got extended. Wat a joke. Co buta or favortism.

Life goes on.CC been flying too long & their horizon & perspective are shallow. There is life beyond flying.

Rpek got connextion. He had contributed in cost savings for Co.all these years.So Co. is not buta or favoritism. He very much deserve the extension. Same same as the ex-President.

Uncle BT
It is very ironical of CC, especially the most senior & older mentality.When they are flying, they always think highly of themselves & potray the image that they are more valuable than what they are being paid for.They always believe that their market rate is very high.But when they did not get that EXTENSION,why did not they go to the market as they believe that their value surpass what SIA pay them.Very very ironical & mind boggling. Does not make sense. What you think Uncle?

BT said...

You are not totally wrong la. But there are senior crew doing extremely well outside of sia. Look at ah tiam who owns a string of hkg street resturants,lee wah now owns a chain of pet lover centre,ricky & lambert co-own fish&co and many more...agreed majority of seniors talk cock only and their value are that of taxi drivers,mrt safety officers...

Airman said...

It's not fair for Alice the generalise and mentioned majority of IFS/Senior crew are as she puts it,'thinks highly of themselves'.Most of them are ,maybe not directly instrumental in the building of SQ,but at least a little indirectly.How about the newer crew who are earning a prerrt penny just of of Unis,you think they are paid too much? Anyway,most Seniors will agree with me that Sq has provided a level of comfort for them that they really cannot complain.Sq is a public listed company and whatever actions,disciplinary or other,will come under public scruntiny.Everything,like extension of service,have to be done 'above-board'.In the end,it's not the job we do,or have done but what we have acquired as a person doing the job(not the monetary/material type).Did we enjoyed our stint,did we have fun and did it adequately(sufficiently within means) provided for us all these years,finally and most importantly,what we became coming out from the job,as a person.

Boh Tong, agreed some of the seniors talk cock here ! as they do at Ikea Tampines but do YOU know that the date has been changed now because of YOu. U are the TalK-CoCk King !Incidentally your rubbish of those successful X-crew, only ricky and lambert is correct ! Pse be more factual, can be worst than taxi-driver or MRT safety offrs !

Uncle BT. Totally agree with u. Those senior crew always talk cock & they always over value themselves. Whilst in the airline, they always lament that they are under paid. They think that their market value is way above what they are currently being paid. But when they are not xtended, they willing to take any measures, even pay cuts. What a turnabout. I really lost respect for them. They shld go out & get that so called market value...
