Default NWA fence proposal

So it sounds like the NWA guys want a 10 year fence to give them the benefit of their "exceptional" attrition. It's funny how the fence stops when their retirements slow down and the Delta retirements get bigger. They want the benefit of their near term retirements to only go to them and then they also want the benefit of the large Delta retirements in 10 years to go to them. If we are going that way we need to have 35year fences.

As long as they fence the bottom so they can reap their aircraft retirements also, the 10 year fence is fine with me.

new scope caps the regionals off and DAL has already announced over 100+ "RJs" will be parked in the near future.

satchip thinks the nwa planes will be parked and whats to protect the delta pilots. I was wondering if he thinks the airline will replace them with mainline aircraft, regional aircraft or just parked w/o a replacement.

isn't nwa only asking for a partial fence for their "exceptional" attrition seen as no one has to retire for another 4 years. essentially the fence is for only 6 real years of retirement between both companies and nwa's retirements are to last from years 5-15. (age 65)

Its a fence, not dynamic seniority. The retirements would benefit both sides because both sides move up a number every time someone retires. Only those specific positions would be fenced. Therefore any guys at DAL that are below a "senior" NWA pilot wouldn't be effected by those that are technically above them on the list.
