Default Ready Reserve

Ready Reserve

Question for your guys and gals;

1. Does your company use ready reserve (airport standby)?
2. If not, is it because itís contractual, or they could, but just donít?

This topic has arisen periodically, and I have a general sense of who does and doesnít use it, but wanted to get an official word from the boys. And for those looking into companies, this is a nice thing to know too as a side note to this thread.

Thanks,

HPD

Piedmont does not do ready reserve. Out typical call out is 75 minutes but can go to 120 minutes with bussing operation.

Mesaba does.
8 hr shift. Pays 4 hours + per diem
Max 10 times per month. No more than 3 in any stretch of reserve days.

That does not sound fun. How about American Eagle and Air Wis?

aside here... what are we negotiating for RR-wise in the JCBA, do you know?

Pinnacle does:

9 hours max (always assigned), no extra pay, no max RR per month (1 AM, 1 PM, 2 late allowed)


TA1: 9 hours, no max per-person RR per month (but 2 per shift, 3 shifts daily) RR allowed to be assigned during schedule integration to crewtrac; 1 hour of pay only if called in for RR...

You forgot the best parts. 5 hours pay, no limit to how many times per month, no limit to changing sides of clock. IE very common to be assigned 1300-2300 airport reserve just to get a call at 1400 to do one leg to the overnight and have a short overnight with a 515 show. Good times all around.

Um, they can assign RR during schedule integration NOW. Before final schedules are out, everyone on reserve has home reserve PM. After the "integration" is done, then we see how badly we get screwed. Then they can escalate you pretty much any time they want, you just get 90 minutes to get there. XJ can only be escalated the night before. No same day escalations, which is kinda nice. I had one stretch of 5 home reserve days. Escalated to RR Am the first day, and then every day after that at 1 minute after going on reserve, the call would come in: "We're escalating you to RR." There's no limit, and there's no contractual language to force them to go in seniority order. Even then, there's no transparency to make sure they follow the rules.

I do not know what direction the negotiations are. I know what I would like (No RR, No JM's).
