Wanted to add that I have a friend that spoke with contract compliance and regardless of your seat or aircraft, if you have been displaced via the 15.g.4, you are qualified for the override in pay via a seat lock.

Just wanted to add for clarity and to put to rest that rumor.

Default Vacancy bid

So from the latest union email on bidding 3P vs 3D(15G4) vs proffer to displace.

3P is pretty straight forward you bid what you can hold that is OPEN. Everyone gets this and understands it.

3D/Displacement/15 G 4 - all pilots that fall under this status can bid what they can hold.

Proffer to displace- You can ONLY proffer to displace to an open vacancy or position. (This is news to me.)

I think this is where the disconnect comes from. I hope this clears a few things up.

Also, is there really 10 senior FO guys that didn't get forced to upgrade? If so this may be a savage move made by the company on purpose. Those senior FOs have to be a CA for one year before they can flow. So if the company doesn't force them to upgrade then the flow will.

If you could have won the award in a preference, you could have won the award with a displacement as well. So in reality, it really doesn't matter, except that by preference bidding you lose out on the override pay. This of course would all change if the company stops force upgrades, but as of now, they haven't.

In regards to the override pay, I have asked around and the company is awarding the override pay to FO's, regardless of equipment change or not. Let's hope that continues.

So real world example:
The most JR FO who preference bid to OCL was sen 1990. If he had put only 3D and no 3P he would have held the seat anyway because there were 2 F/O jr to him that were displaced into OCL.

Is this what youíre saying?

I did know that and I sometimes have gotten frustrated talking about proffer to displace and displacement, both here and elsewhere, because it seemed everyone was so confused about it they couldn't even speak in the same language.

And yeah, you explained it better but I had a post a page or two back that explained just how someone could end up in the wrong airframe by misunderstanding how the bids work.

Yes, if they displaced two junior to him then he would have gotten the same displacement since he was senior to them.

Also, there are a number of first officers senior to the most senior FO displaced to CA on this bid that were previously awarded/displaced into CA slots but have not gone to training yet.

Finally, with the standing vacancy there's a chance that the company is intentionally leaving CA slots unfilled. As an example let's say 100 CA slots for a position are posted in a bid. The company wants at least 80. Only 50 people bid for it so the company displaces another 30 to get their 80 and leaves 20 for the standing vacancy. I have no idea if this is contractually legal or not but if the company is doing this it would at least be nice of them to let us know what the minimum number they're looking for is.
They filled the entire vacancy. Only thing left open is NCE backfills.

If they filled the vacancy can there be standing bids? Does that end DECs?
