Wrong again. DL "acquired" NW.

Doesn't matter who acquired who to an arbiter.

Here's the email. Well the body of the email.

"May 13, 2011
*
Today, Mr. Bloch has contacted the three Merger Committee chairmen regarding the Seniority List Integration Decision. He has indicated that his Decision and Award is almost complete and will be released on or before next Friday, May 20."

Lol, what else do you expect me to say?

All 3 MEC's argued in the beginning of JCBA that this was a merger, not an acquisition. But if you ask a 9E guy, he believes it is.

Who has any idea how Bloch views this situation, we will find out soon though, I hope.

20th now?

Sigh.

It doesn't matter whether it's a merger or acquisition with regards to an SLI...

The Arb in the integration with Frontier took the view of if not for Republic, Frountier would be gone. They got HOSED!
