2007 Posted February 13, 2007 Report Share Posted February 13, 2007 Its that time of the year again when a lot of operators are going to shoot themselves in the foot. The Government of Alberta has just issued contracts for the upcoming fire season. The contracts run from April 1, 2007 to March 31, 2010. On or about April 1, 2007, the Government of Alberta will tell all the operators that sign the contract what they will pay you for your helicopter. What really irks me is that someone is going to tell me what they are going to pay for my services. If the Industry was to get together and tell the Government of Alberta what our aircraft will cost them, they would start complaining about "price fixing", but for them to do it, that's OK. What a double standard. Our company will be sending the unsigned contract back to the government of Alberta with a polite note saying that if they require our services, please contact us and we will advise you of our tariff. STOP LETTING THE GOVERNMENT DICTATE WHAT YOUR AIRCRAFT AND SERVICES ARE WORTH! Oh and by the way...If you are a fixed wing operator working for the Government of Alberta, you can tell them what your tariff rate is....What a load of crap. 2007 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
