I thought this management gimmick died in the 90s but a number of managements at some companies appear to be trying to resurrect the practice. It’s definitely not anything we want to allow to make a comeback.

Is it worth it on a short term contract if it brings all the flying back to the mainline under one pilot list and ends outsourcing to regionals with solid scope protections?

Would bringing all the E175/E145's and CRJ700/900's to mainline and allowing the company to keep the lower (but higher than now) payscale for a short term contract be worthwhile?
Would it allow them to hire into the small jets from colleges, universities and civilian pilots to do their time gaining 121 experience before bidding to larger jets, and allowing pilots with 5 or more years of 121 experience or military flying experience to start at A220/E190/737/A320?
Create a fence so no super senior mainline can displace on the smalljets, and no super senior guy on the small jets can displace on the large jets. Use Date of single list as the fence end, anybody hired after that date has no bid protections. Eventually when all the senior folks retire, you'll have one list and no fences.
Think long term, they do.
