Instigated his crew to stop work

IFS Ron was anti-company. He felt his employer wasn't treating him well. One day he took the opportunity to strike back at airline that employed him by instigating a "walk-out".

The opportunity came when the flight he and his cabin crew had to operate encountered a long delay. It wasn't long actually by some airlines standard. In total, he and his crew had to operate close to 14 hours. However, instead of the usual 2 sectors, they had to do 4 sectors, example: HKG/TPE/TYO/TPE/HKG instead of just HKG/TPE/TYO.

After operating HKG/TPE/TYO/TPE  and instead of working on the last sector to HKG, Ron persuaded his crew to consult a doctor in TPE and asked for medical leave. Seven crew members and Ron was granted a day medical leave due to "fatigue". Due to safety issue, the B747 was grounded in TPE for 10 hours.

The "walk-out" inevitably cost the airline a lot of money and time. Ron was hauled to the office but management could not take disciplinary action against Ron and his crew. They were legally covered by the medical leave issued by the doctor in TPE.

 I don't know whether someone tip off the management or not but Ron was "spot checked" by the airport security staff when he returned from one of his other flights. Ron was found to be in possession of a bottle of liquor which belonged to the company. He was booted out after a hurriedly arranged disciplinary inquiry.

Were you one of the 4 that was present today or you saw them go STC? Share share leh.

If what you claim is true, did they mark attendance? We can use the attendance to pressure NTUC to call for election!

Out of 38delegates and shop stewards,only 08 left,how can management still have meetings with Tony.What mandate does Tony have to chair meetings and negotiates for cabin crew.

First someone says 4 and now you say 8. How many actually left? If tony cannot negotiate with management, why ain't anybody writing to NTUC to complain??!!

Tony ought to have a new bunch of shop stewards coz the ones that he has now are GOOD FOR NOTHING and act as if they are Mr Know-All.

Tony needs to revise his shop-stewards who are good-for-nothing unionists!

4 or 8.. does it matter?

Union is good, like circus.
During CI, they will all turn up to watch the event.. pretending to show "solidarity".. but in actual fact the decision to sack, demote etc has already been discussed and concluded.

The presence of 4 or 8 is of no significance. What ever is on the table ( or under it ) has been concluded.. its just a circus.

Enjoy the circus.. it is fun.

Like that if you get into a CI (touch wood), dun ask the union to fight for you since its a circus.

If it's a circus, then I would encourage everyone to stop their monthly contribution to the union coz to does no benefit.So have you resigned from the union already or you are still sponsoring the circus acts?!
