If you acknowledge eMaestro, you are considered notified.
So tomorrow log into eMaestro during the displacement window and if there's nothing there, acknowledge it quick and log off, you're done.

I thought it was that easy, but after going over the contract again it looks like I still have to report at my original scheduled report time.

I acknowledge a nonfly event for tomorrow on emaestro, however it shows me scheduled for an event. What a worthless system!

There was an ops note on that a couple weeks ago. It was titled self notification or something like that.

On the agenda for the special MEC meeting the other day was clearer rules for Union issued laptops to the volunteers; a clearer policy on buying the laptop when one chooses he/she no longer wants to be a volunteer or returning it to the union.....

....also discussed was the meeting between the union leadership and NG#4 and SB. Aparently NG#4 was pleased with what the union offered for furlough mitigation and was taking another look.

....NG#4 aparently also got 'permission' from Delta to offer buy outs to the pilots and flight attendants. It will be similar to the age 55 plan other employees have been offered. Approx. 400 pilots are eligible, but not nearly that many are expected to take it. Look for something to be posted about it on Monday. The window for this would be January 19th til I think Feb. 1.

....All this talk on EPIC mentioning 'slimming down' is aparently refering to the GO staff. We have the support structure for 1500-1600 pilots, but we all know we don't have that many on property anymore....it seemed like NG#4 understood that pilots already made their concessions in bankruptcy....

....NG#4 seemed to think that if another round of F-lows was needed, it wouldn't even be close to the numbers posted so far. This will hopefully be mitigated by any buyouts.

Hope this helps.

Best of luck to you out on the street.

Please call your status Rep. and ask. They are more than willing to help.

I also call scheduling from time to time with out giving them my name or product number and give them a 'hypothetical situation'. Then, once they tell me what they think, I either make the decision to call my rep. if I think they are wrong, or I tell them my name and number if I agree with them. That way, I figure out their side of the story and I have it on tape.

Good luck.

Outstations? Like Louisville, CMH, DAY, LEX, CRW? Backward places like that? (no offense to people from those areas it's just that the area is not really known for business savvy or anything really relevant, except coal mining and pot growing )
Ouch, SoCal to NoKY! What a culture shock! Keep those boxes packed in the garage and ready to go!

From me to all of you:

"This firm requires no physical fitness program. Everyone gets enough exercise jumping to conclussions, flying off the handle, running down the boss, flogging dead horses, knifing friends in the back, dodging responsibility, and pushing their luck!!!".

Actually CMH has had many profitable businesses started there. Wendy's, Kinko's, Limited, Express, Bob Evans, NetJets, Abercrombie. And why are you even talking about this?? Is this my town is better than your town. Swee
