    PSAC Strike Actions and Some Reactions- Merged Thread

    I say good for them and good luck to them! The wage disparity really is out of line between public and private sectors.. And the government really has done nothing to address this since legislating them back to work in '91. Hopefully it is a quick end to the strike, as my wife isn't a big fan...

    Strange situation..

    Well, I was given and I accepted an offer today...  strangely enough.. Starngely enough, because I applied back in May, for the Summer selection Board for Sig O, and the offer is for a January IAP/BOTP... is this normal?  Or what may have caused this large gap between offer and start? Not...

    I heard from DEO boards!

    Well, I got an update from CFRC on Friday...  The Cpt. told me that there was some re-shuffling of peoples positions on the waitlist for a few MOC, including Sigs.  I was number 3 previously, and he told me I had been moved to number 8.  He as much told me that it is not in the cards for me. I...

    I heard from DEO boards!

    Exactly.  Since I am #3 on the list... 3 people have to say no or otherwise decline their offer and that would bring it to me.

    Sweet-hoppin' Jesus, Sundborg....  That's gotta be about the biggest mulie I have ever seen. My first "confirmed kill"  ;D so to speak was a mulie...  just a yound buck.  Maybe came out to just under 100 lbs of meat.  But damn was it good.
