What Happened In 2003?
Mood:  d'oh

It looked like the severance (Article 28) was coming to an end, so I supported the idea of "another severance" based on profit sharing. Of course, that didn't happen in 2003.

The grandfathering of severance (the better deal) didn't happen either.(That was the original CPC proposal which was refused by the union.) In the end, the NEB accepted a 1% increase of wages for those with less than 28 years service. This was an inferior deal to "the grandfathering proposal" which would have left all full time employees at that time with their severance(new employees wouldn't get it).

The critics like Steve Killy fought to have the severance package reinstated but they lost that battle. 

Nobody mentioned "the grandfather proposal" until a year later. All of us dropped the ball on that one.
