Many, many years ago, I had some problems with 100/30. I asked the union to ask the company to add a question to the bid. "If you have a 100/30 issue, would you like to default to your next bid choice?" I wanted the question added to the list of questions you answer when you bid. This would save people who might have an entire line dropped during a vacation month, when they needed to burn vacation before the end of the year so they didn't lose it.

This was before the last contract, and I brought it up to the NC, and many others. Nothing changed. I couldn't believe that such a simple solution to a problem faced by many crew members would be rejected.

This ended up being one of the many reasons I voted no.

This could be fixed, and easily, without waiting for the next contract.

All it takes is someone to do the right thing.
