    Anyway there was a bit of an uproar at our meeting with the union about this being a consultation and not negotiations and it would seem that the overtime guys all of a sudden became not available so the company panicked after a few days and changed it to negotiation and extended the time by 30 days as the flight line does not run very well without OT .The OCG contracts that are coming in don't look very good at all but will probably be a few years till it affects all that are left and there will be no union recognition at all , I'm surprised the union hasn't made lots of noises about this before now .

    The OCG contract was first got in at Gatwick I Believe. Anyway it's minimum pay, annualised hours, no staff travel, sick pay at the discretion of management, not allowed to join a union, less annual leave and the disciplinary procedure reduced to about one page with no appeal allowed.
    In short the type of terms that would make any decent human being blush.
    Er,I never touched it - it came off in me hand

    I may be at risk of appearing a bit thick but what or who is OCG? Is this BA Engineering?

    "OUR COLLEAGUE GUIDE" Basically a new terms and conditions contract that check in and a few others are currently on, better off being a contractor quite honestly than permanent on OCG.

    While its easter sunday i would like to say a huge congratulations to the messiah and the rest of the ELT, they have achieved far more of a moral boost to the FSDE,s AMS,s LAE,s Mechanics and Mo,s than AK or GC could ever have dreamt off, congratulations to you all a great achievement !
