Regret voting opposition


Oh no, I am not talking about the national Punggol by- election which is going on today.
I am talking about SIA cabin crew that voted for the opposition party to represent them as their union shop stewards.
Cabin crew goes to the poll once every 4 years to vote for their union representatives. The last time they voted was end 2010.
Prior to the last election, Alan and Heart party was in charge. The crew was disenchanted with them and decided to vote them out,which they did in October 2010.
Now more than 2 years later, cabin crew regretted voting the opposition ( Choice party). They alleged Choice had not done much to improve their working lives. They accused Choice of betraying them and not fulfilling their election promises.
They are now demanding the return of Heart party and it's leader Alan Tan.

In my past experienced as a union representative, management do exploit the union if it is weak. Management will outwit a weak union at the bargaining table by giving less to its members and making them work harder, all in the name of productivity. After all, people in the management hierarchy would also have to make a living. They would want the "best" for the company and its shareholders. They would also want to "score points" with their bosses so as to advance in their careers.  The lesser they give to the crew,the more they would save for the company. In return for a job "well done", they may get promoted or rewarded with bigger salary increases.
For the moment, the disgruntled crew would just have to bear with the "consequences" of voting an untested and inexperienced opposition in 2010.

CC deserves every bit of it for voting Choice. Do you ever suspect Toni is a company's mole???
Stories From The Air21/1/13
I am not a fan of LKY but I will say the real chairman during Pillay's time was LKY. LCB was the MD who did all the dirty work. SIA was LKY's baby. Without him, SIA wouldn't be able to grow so fast.

LMA calculation is based on hotel menu and currency exchange. Who agreed to move into cheaper hotels in exchange for a share in the savings
Stories From The Air21/1/13
You guys forgot that the crew were having a lot of morale problems with Pillay till LKY stepped in.

Choice is doing us no good. I am deeply sorry to have voted Alan and Heart out and placed a lame Choice in our midst.

Tell toni simm to go eat shit

Why CC so like dat. They got to live with their Choice. No need to be disappointed.
Let Toni finish his term & accept what is dished out.
The meal allowance will fall further as sg currency will be stronger to curb inflation from prices of imports.
