SIA is bestest!

It wont be long before this great airline starts to recruit staff esp cabin crew again. My bet is by early 2010 it will be expanding its network and short of staff esp cc again.
The way SIA has handled the situation hit by the worst recession ever has won my admiration. Not a single staff has been retrenched,only pay cut of a meagre of 10%.
The SIA share has been climbing by about 50% since its low early this year. Today,SIA is above S$13 and is going up and up.
Take heart cc for your job is safe and sound. SIA needs you! Be good employees and help this great airline to prosper and climb to greater heights (of course with me around it would be better...hahaha). CC you should be grateful for being the employees of SIA, so stop bitching around esp the senior crew about this and that. You shd also be thankful you have a admirable unionist like Alan to guide and help you.....goodbye forever to the previous group that you have kicked out!

Well said Boh Tong.

I have many fellow capts who bitch about the measures to cut cost by the company including pay cuts. But personally, after seeing some of my friends losing their jobs, I am happy to count my blessings and glad that I have a job that still enables me to pay the bills.

Yes.Without SQ most of the senior crew cannot afford landed and private property and sending their children for overseas studies

BT its a pity. The way you talk, you should have stayed on & on & on....

SIA is a good company.Look at DBS. At the very start when they lost a lil they started to retrench. Mind u SIA lost a bundle during the last qrt and yet not 1 staff lost their job. From the inside when I was with SIA I didnt appreciate it that much but now as a neutral person looking from the outside I think SIA is admirable and gutsy.

Then in 2003 why did SIA resort to retrenchment?

Whose idea was that?

It would be good if BT is still around.

The 2003 retrenchment was not massive and sia has learnt that it was difficult to get staff once the crisis was over.
Whose idea? well some asses in the mangement.
BT is not indispensable

aiyo, should retrench the bitchy and old one , those CSS like DS. She is really giving hell to the crew member. Wonder if the company knows abt this ? Boh Tong, do u know her story?? She is the most " black heart" woman in SIA

ConcernedCrew said...

Aiyaaa..........CSS DS is nothing compare to the newly promoted IFSS C.T. Now she is a piece of WORK!Cabin Crew very obviously made a hugh mistake giving her the post.She is a real mistake.She gives the previous ex-IFSS JL a run for her money!But I suspect she will surpass her.Both are from the same hometown somemore!

Pls la. CSS DS is pretty and beutiful.That's why no one likes her.As IFSS CT, only talk la.Those who cannot work or afraid of hard work will definately don't like her breathing their neck. Ask those who are tip-top. They will say she is ok. Anyway, there is no report about her management style. So crew only talk and spread rumours. Typical.

Come on la sia didn't get rid of me.I was the 1 who wanted to leave b4 2003 but sia wont let me go.

Yes , no doubt DS is quite pretty however she is really having an unkind heart. Only those being victimized will understand what kind of person she is . May be because of her personal life that lead her to what she is today. . so let us be more forgiveful, if not we are no different from her -wicked woman !!
