My heart bleeds for OneVoice and Unity

 All 3 parties contesting in the cc union election 2015 had worked hard to woo the cc votes. I feel sorry for the 2 parties who had lost. It is inevitable as only one party would emerged as the winner.
Voice promised in its manifesto to bring Eddy the retired ex union president as its adviser. This could have backfired as many felt that Eddy has lost touch with the new generation of crew.


The main loser in this election is Eddy again. In 2007, he was defeated by Alan and Heart. Eddy retired from the airline not long after his defeat. To avenge his defeat by Alan, the already retired Eddy rallied behind Tony a newbie in the 2010 election.
Tony and his party called Choice handed Alan and Heart a big thrashing. Eddy was looking forward to becoming the union`s adviser but unfortunately, Tony did not want him. Eddy was obviously disappointed with Tony and Choice and in this election (2015), decided to back Vernon and One Voice, a breakaway party from Choice. Tony and Choice did not contest in this election. The reason? Tony knew he will be badly beaten because of his last 4 1/2 years performances.
This time round Eddy thought he could win. His strategy did not go down well with the voters and it may have been one of the reasons One Voice lost so badly
All in all Eddy actually "lost the election" for the third time since 2007.


As for PJ the leader of Unity, this would be his last attempt at the union election. He is going to be 59 soon and probably retires at 60 unless Alan decides to help him extend his retirement to 62 and beyond. Some people aren`t destined to lead no matter how hard they try and PJ is one of them.


I would like to congratulate Alan and Heart Party for the big win. May you achieve the things you have promised cabin crew. It may be a difficult task but with the  majority of the members supporting you, we see no reason why you can`t.

huh? you mean with majority of members supporting alan, you all will get what you want? dream on lor. even if ALL of you threaten to go on strike, you think mgt cares? They already have you guys by the balls. Maybe if you guai guai do your shit, perhaps might reconsider give in to some of your small demands to make yoj feel shiok.

Don't expect too much . Take your pay, enjoy yourself when outstation, do your job, stay out of politics..

Basically you have no say in the negotiations by union or final decision from mgt. You just take whatever has been decided by them. Union is just a wayang to control strikes and to show that they do 'listen and care'. When it comes to budget and costs, the company will not bulge. When comes to small trivial matters, they might relent.
So dont expect too much.

If YOU want a say then make some personal sacrifice. Dont give excuses " no time, family commitment, afraid". Dont wayang too much or you will lose yourself. Form a team and get ready for the next election and win then YOU can have many say.

Talk rot.

The team just fought a hard election and make many sacrifices during this trying times. Give them your support instead of throwing sand at your representatives which was voted by the cc with large majority.
