I have not heard anything about you union, which I believe is TCU, agreeing to or having paycuts forced on them. I don't believe that TCU was even asked by NW for labor restrucuring. Was there an agreement reached a long time ago that we don't know about. If no Canadian employees have taken paycuts, this is a perfect example to how the health care system in the US is in sorry shape (no universal health care). The health care costs for employees in generally, a lot lower in Canada so paycuts and benefit cuts are not as urgent.
