This is HQAC’s SOP.
I think if the numbers of non-signers had been 5% or so, (conjecture) I feel that the losses would have been done in June. But I think it’s a lot higher than this and as the admin around dismissing people would have had to happened over the summer. But it was a lot more so they’ve let it ride and come back with this load of BS.
The worry we should have is are they prepared to accept the consequences of losing staff? It’s not been a concern thus far. if there was a loss of staff directly or indirectly as a result of this, they would not see themselves as being part of the problem and lay the blame at the feet of CFAV. I know they want to reduce the number of squadrons, but the problem is in something as unconstructed as this, it becomes random.
