Subtract reserves and the average for line holders is about 1075.

A reasonable wage estimate -
reserve - 90% of hourly rate x 1000. IE $100/hr = $90,000/yr.
line holder - 100-110%. IE $100/hr = $100,000 - $110,000/yr.

Using the union's numbers (+/-) -

Reserve @ $100//yr = $90,000.
Line holder - $107,500.
Avg for all - $103,000.

Plus 15-16% retirement.
I think it is great that my mates are making what they were supposed to be making under the 2000 era contract. It is now 2015 and the next "event" than negates all that "progress" could happen any time, ie: sars, ebola, change in equity for pay to executives.....and it is furloughs again, but your company values your contribution so much that nothing negative could happen.....cough.

Anyway, my point is I am an American guy that has found QR to be not that bad a deal.

Best of luck to all.
