Give me strength lol, this company wasted over $1bn on nothing more than a whim with a learjet nobody wanted or needed. It built Global whitetails in hope rather than actual sales which lead to a schedule decimation and expenditure outgoings that... read more
Here is a thought. If you don't like how the company is run or the conditions, fill in a voluntary redundancy form and then find yourself a job that is better than the one you currently have. In reality what you will find is a minimum wage job... read more

The company line about engine supply is a smoke screen. The real problem is the supply of fuselage sections from China. The Chinese supplier is way out of its depth. They can't come close to supplying the numbers or, more worryingly the quality... read more
I thought the wizard from P&W was brought in as the fixer, looks like he may yet be the closer. Hoping this time the shop floor Worker's will be left a lone. Maybe they will do away with the Corner Boy/ Bully Boy type management we have in Belfast... read more
Not really the evolution of mobility, especially social mobility. Place is doomed. Corporate mobbing more important than working. Lot of people on power trips, for now. Sad really. Chickens always come home to roost though. I hope all the critical... read more
The unite union senior Stewart's, are working more for the management and company theses days. Rather than the members that pay dues of nearly £15 a month to be represented and receive none. Time to Waken up guys.
