Breaking news --- No retrenchment only deeper pay cut for pilots


It is like striking the lottery for the pilots as SIA has ditched the plan to retrench them. The pilots will have to take a further pay cut (above table)only.

BOH Tong , why are you stirring shit and saying they strike lottery ? Are you hoping for retrenchment for the Pilots as well ? They definitely have the privilege of having a better Union, unlike your crappy cabin crew union .. so as Long as the company is agreeable and find it feasible with the agreement, so be it ... the company is not so stupid as to sign an agreement to their disadvantage... by the way , this agreement is more to the advantage of the PRs

Halo you up there. I presume you must be one of the pilots that escaped the gallows by a whisker. I do not think BT is hoping the pilots be axed. As a matter of fact, I think he is jubilant and excited that the pilots are "saved" from the tone of his post. Don't be how lian la brother and branded cc union as "crappy cabin crew union". I defy you to come out in the open with your name etc and don't hide behind the skirt of anonymity.
Now you lousy drivers are saved from being retrenchment go on your way and be grateful that SIA still want to pay you ten of thousands of $$$$ every month for doing nothing.

Oh no they are not chopped? Tomorrow SIA share price will
definitely take a steep dive! Sad sad as I was hoping the highly paid
drivers be retrenched so SIA could save money and its share can rise
a little. Will sell off tomorrow when the market opens.

Hey hey, you guys out there. Don't behave like children. No need for cabin crew and tech crew to be at war.
Schadenfreude and evilness at play again? Guess only few evil people around, looking at the comments.

Bohtong, thank you for the updates!

I feel u r happy to share the news and that the pilots are not retrenched. But there are always people who interpret it in the other way..

Let us have a big heart and forgive all these people with negative thoughts and just want to find faults in people.

God bless u :)

Boh Tong: Thank you for your kind words. Yes, I was happy to hear that our pilots would not be retrenched. I was thinking of the consequences as a result of a retrenchment like how are the pilots going to support their families, pay their housing, car, children's education loans etc.
I understand the some SG pilots aren't happy because they would like to see their PRs and the reemployed retirees colleagues go instead of just pay cuts. Well the company can't make everybody happy and that is the reality of life.

The company should handle retrenchment in this manner.
Assess which group is least likely to be affected financially in the area of family support, housing loan etc. The age of a person comes into play here.
When u are a young pilot, u would have ton of commitments. For a older pilot bec of your years of advantage, u would have paid for your housing by then, children all independent, and live life to the fullest (this job sure is great isn't it, the best life can offer).
It's a nice feeling job isn't it. See the world and experience the different cultures of the world. So so great.
As for a young pilot: he would be in a critical position when he loses this job. The higher pay that a pilot command, he would invariably ended up with higher end financial commitments bec people plan according to how much they are paid.
The world did not expect this covid-19 episode to happen. The whole world people were planning their commitments according to the salary that one is earning..
Only one person in this world did plan for this though. Just one person out of billions. The person is Lee Kuan Yew. This is why he envisaged that Singapore 🇸🇬 must save for a rainy day (our reserve, which has been used to fund and support company to ensure they protect Singaporean from retrenchment. However there is a limit bec after extending over 100 billions we may not have much left).
Anyway back to the pilot survival.
The main point is : nobody expects this covid to come along. It come so suddenly that the world is not prepared.
I remember during the financial crisis and the stock market crashed, l was caught off guard bec all my money was invested, and after holding on for over 10 years, the price did not go up to the level bought, so you gonna lose a fortune.
Covid-19 indeed Wipeout Singapore reserve that has been accumulated over many years. Lucky it is a saving and therefore we can use it with min pain. Those countries without this buffer will have to loan and make the future generation pays.
Back to our pilot and the retrenchment process. Older pilots would have kids grown up, housing paid and in a better position to cushion this covid situation. They could just retire, live on their savings and CPF and still have a great lifestyle (unless you gamble). So l would think it would be a great gesture on your part to volunteer to be retrenched/retire if it ever come to this, thus making a sacrifice for your younger colleagues who still has got so much to pay and handle. God will bless you in the process and l am sure there is a feel good feeling that you have done such a great deed for humanity.
SIA should take note of this.
