So let me sum this up:

There is no contractual reference to the company moving one's training bid a month early. In my experience, that means we are screwed if we'd like it moved back to its original month. This is because the company, knowing a contract isn't going to be done by Peak (big surprise), is bracing for an apparent manning issue (even though we are "overmanned.")

In return, I lose a month of preparation. Instead of having seven weeks to prepare, I may have to train in three weeks. I also lose any scheduling flexibility I had during the holidays with training. As well, I lose any flexibility in November I may have been hoping for being pretty Junior in my seat, and can expect to train on a November day I was hoping to have off.

Awesome!
